Commenter Brooksyboy got into Harvard. Props to him. I can't tell if he's a new poster or an old one, since so many people changed their names.
It's weird, I've taken to reading the Open Thread while I eat lunch. It's like reading someone else's blog. It's the wildest feeling. When I started it, I was convinced it was a bad idea and no one would post. It's wild to how many folks actually do participate.
Anyway, I'm rambling. Props to Brooksyby. Next stop--some long-form literary magazine, no doubt.
UPDATE: Feh, I muffed the kid's handle. It's Brooksyboy. I shoulda went to Harvard...
