Where's my bloody facial spray, damnit!?

Bordering on almost completely out of control.  PS, this facial spray is lovely.  The scent is pretty much just rose, but the aloe shines through and makes your skin feel refreshed and definitely dewy.  Scout's honor, someone asked me if I had been on vacation b/c of my complexion today, and I have sprayed about 3 times total.  Kind of extravagant, but worth it.  Worth it?

Form Follows Function Follows Form

You guys, lookin' forward to starting the nerding out (and working hard, meh) process tomorrow after work!

"Although it is possible to study anatomy and physiology individually, they are really inseparable because function always reflects structure. That is, what a structure can do depends on its specific form. This key concept is called the principle of complementarity of structure and function."

Looked up "pork butt roast recipes" (keeping it sexy here in the Smaland household) and found this gem - really clarifies a grammatical rule that I've never been quite sure on! I still hafta check with Sirs Strunk and White, but bia sounds like she knows what she's talking about.

"...BTW, T. from Massachusetts is only partially correct. In American English (but not British) quotation marks generally are outside the punctuation. However, exceptions are when a question mark or exclamation mark would add an emphasis that was not in the original. Thus Mama T. was correct in punctuation it "barbeCue"!, although she was wrong in trying banish the "q" from that word; "c" may be more common, but "q" is perfectly acceptable. One also finds "Bar-B-Q" in addition to the other variants she notes."
