Help!! Please
Hey guys, I know it's been a while since I've been on here - sorry for that. School has been a bitch this semester and I actually have a semblance of a social life. Anyway, I have an assignment due Monday for my global studies class. We have to write a short paper about the customs of other countries, we got a list of questions that I need to be answered. Unfotunately I don't have the questions on me, but if I post them at 10:00 pm central time, could any of you possibly answer the questions by afternoon-ish tomorrow?? I know I have foreign buddies on here. =] I would appreciate this SO much; the person I was going to interview had to randomly take a trip out of town this weekend. =[ Seriously, you would be really saving me. It doesn't matter how many people answer - the more the merrier. In return, I will promise something fairly substantial (or what I hope is, anyway): I will finish 'Undoubtedly Devoted' by the end of this year. Yes. I will. And I know I've been out of the loop for over a month now - it's daunting to think about everything I must have missed, and then to come and ask for something school-related...Please forgive me. But I know that you guys are awesome, and I really hope that you'll help me this once. I luv you!!!

Thank you!!!
