This post is mostly for myself to keep track of my assignments...

2. Domestic Metaphor
- photograph of a symbol, document, thing which stands for something more.
- how a figure interacts with it’s background
- suggests a larger idea
- objects in your house
- represents your home, your domestic life

Hmm. I don't know what the national average is for how many people know their blood type, but my flist blows the Lost castaways out of the water on that front! 75% of y'all know! Of course, I also now know that 40% of you are useless to me. You can just take your A+ & A- selves off to some other island when the plane crashes! All you Os & Bs will be allowed to stay on my island. And Sawyer can stay too. Doesn't matter what his blood type is, cuz he's pretty.
