Entering teacher's responses to a product, by way of a survey. This one was challenging. "The studnt's work was very good--she (incomprehensible word) a great deal.

That word, by context, is "improved." However, this word is very clearly written "impube." It *might* be "impribe." I'm going for "impube," though. Now I have to know what "impube" means. It sounds naughty.

Insensitive e-greetings Volume 3--

Reviewing the "furry holiday calendar" I keep on my webspace, I noticed that this was "Meet a Mate week." The first two pages of hits searching for the origins of "meet a mate week" were consistantly e-cards celebrating the occasion.

This seems a touch rude, somehow. Would they say "Hoping you're less frustrated and bitchy next week," maybe something that rhymes--"From your office buddies/best of luck!/Find your one true love/or at least a companion"?

Hmm. Compelling reasons for me not to write for Hallmark.
