Marilyn: I wish they'd pass a law like that for me.*

I had a "crewpon" burning a hole in my pocket—no, not a coveted "JCA" crewpon, I am considerably lazier than actual J.Crew bloggers; still, it was a nice discount. I thought I would indulge myself in this fabulous shirt.

I had been perishing to integrate plaid into a female work wardrobe, knowing it would be a bit tricky making it look formal enough. You'll note 'Crew paired their ladies' plaid shirts with sequin-encrusted pants and mini-skirts—not as awful as it sounds—but gear like that is out of the question for me. I ended up going for a trusty Jackie, denim skirt, and mid-calf boots. (Did I mention mid-calf is ideal for our mid-warm weather?)

The grade report is in production; I've finished my part of this phase of the code port, except for a nagging file serve issue. It works in Firefox, of course, and it works in dev in Firefox and IE. You want to use it in production in you really? Can't you just use it in dev? :D It's harder testing in this environment, otherwise I think it's a fairly trivial header issue.
