Amanda is my goddess. She reminded me that ITS had sent out an e-mail saying "RETURNING STUDENTS: Your passwords will be reset Monday, August 19. Your password will be set to the first 8 digits of your OLD Smith ID number (in most cases, your Social Security number)."

hermionesviolin: Indeed.
hermionesviolin: But is is skinny like petite? 'cause petite is sexy, or passionate, or something.
silvermousepad: ohwell, i tried ;-)
silvermousepad: lol
silvermousepad: ohyes, how could i forget?!
hermionesviolin: "hot" - that's what it was. Yes, petite = hot. How could i have forgotten that nugget of wisdome?
hermionesviolin: And "very hot" no less.
silvermousepad: haha
