There hasn't been a good fight here in a while, hmmm....

Well, if I could handle cracked out clients in person, I suppose I should be able to handle people I'm not even face to face with.  That way I don't have to see the looks on people's faces when I get pissed off. 

Ann has been very patiently tutoring me in the mod ways, and to tell you all the truth, I can't remember 1/2 of what she's told me.  But, I'm sure I'll get it after a while.  If I could get used to a fucked up database Indiana State Department of Health wrote, then perhaps I can get this.  We'll see.

Not to worry-- she can't remember either! (she admitted to being bat-shit crazy in another thread, so..........)  :P

I'm sure you'll do fine -- though I do worry that all this talk of no fights is just a jinx waiting to happen!
