I before E except when garvey thinks it should be

first off, a general pat on the backs of my internet friends. I was really scared that no one was going to respond to the five questions deal, but it looks like we’ve even had a third generation kick in through cecilia’s site. congrats all around.

secondly, a quick shout out to lynn, a friend in the MBA program who works in the computer lab. lynn, you are one classy dame.

and since I know you were wondering, I just took my second and last midterm for the semester. hooray and all (one step closer to beeeeeeeer), but I still have quite a way to go before I can bask in the warm glow of spring vacation. one term project is due today, one paper for tomorrow, and I have to fact check an article on tax law by the end of the week. oh, and yeah, I should show up for class too. “four oh in oh five” indeed.

actually, the tests went better than I expected. I had to pee like a mother during yesterday’s advertising and promotion exam, so at least that kept me from being too verbose (pftht - like that’s a problem). today’s was strategic marketing, and it sucked the ever-living ass of the world, but as luck would have it, the two chapters I knew the best were the two concepts tested. yup, only two questions on the whole thing. so, if I fail, it won’t be for lack of comprehension. she might ding me on spelling though – if the Lord wanted us to understand the I before E rule, He wouldn’t have given us spellcheck.

I’m probably not going to be able to post very often this week, so in the meantime, here are a few (awesome) things to keep you busy:

In honor of your week of deep thought, here’s my favorite Clavinism. Good luck!

"Well ya see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers."

Remember, Mikey, I before E except in Budweiser. . .

Yes, I agree, Cecilia has been really slacking off a bit. But I'll forgive her as long as she comes out for my birthday.

Glad you found the blog though.
