Silly mistake is costly

Hello my fellow students. Did you guys attend the Klassen concert? I was going to play for him, but guess what?

I thought it was today, not yesterday!

How does this happen? I don't know. Can anyone relate to this?

regards,

Need phase Vii

Scott sent this to me a long time ago, but I lost it. Can't find it on my computer, e-mail box, or on paper. errk. Scotts away from his office right now and can't re-send it. I'd like to review it!

Would someone be willing to send their phase vii to me?

cheers,
