Zeal

Zeal, n. A certain nervous disorder afflicting the young and inexperienced. A passion that goeth before a sprawl.

2005 Update: Urgent enthusiasm as is felt by Democrats toward the next election, Republicans for governing or a herd of frantic lemmings towards a precipice just yonder.

hey there, cool blog, very entertaining. I had a nose at your stats and notice that you have had a huge jump in the amount of traffic you are recieving in the last week or so. is there anything specific that you attribute this to? Thanks

Weisrdo, I think there's another adjective for us, and I'll let you know when I find Bierce's definition. Until I do, I think Malthus would use "edible."

Nightwriter, thanks and yes. I've been traveling a lot the last couple of weeks and I wanted people to know about my contest, so I bought credits on a few of the webrings. It's actually dizzying.

Interesting. You weren't in highschool as a Sophmore? Wow. Without being too presumptuous, maybe I ask why you dropped out if you did... or you know, what happened? If not, I apologize for even harboring the idea. xD Take care! &Heart

Jessie, I was enrolled in High School as a Sophomore. Even showed up now and again. Thanks for dropping by and for your blog. I'm revising all my remaining memories of High School to better match your posts.
