haha I'm really more of a Type A- to be honest. yes, I'm incredibly neurotic. But I also occasionally fudge deadlines. (You might call it a worst-of-both-worlds scenario.)

JEM said...

Awesome. I feel like coffee and Red Bull are at least the vertical line in that plus sign.

Dang, I'm, like, a Type B-. LOL. But FEELING totally A, thanks to the crit I just got back. Thanks, Moon Rat!
