In the words of Matt Skiba, "Sorry I'm late...I was out spoiling my liver.
...But seriously, sorry for the belated response.
I am incredibly tired. I stayed up till 6 last night for no reason whatsoever, and surprisingly, it's taking its toll. I shall drown it in the newfound joy of Neutral Milk Hotel.
The thread seemed a bit...gushing. Perhaps overenthusiastic. If you like Green Day, or Billie Joe Armstrong, hey, that's great. But when most of the forum regulars see that a 13-year-old girl -- and that already is all you could possibly need to be looked down upon -- started a thread about a fairly popular band in the alt-pop-punk scene that was somewhat over-exuberant...Well. They had a ball. My advice on that end is that when making posts, make sure the spelling and punctuation works, and try not to start a thread if you can find another one that would work. I'm sure Green Day has an official thread. That might have worked better.
Thanks for the compliments. I have been blessed with an exceptionally sweet cello case.
Yours most sincerely,
