Previous Entry | Next Entry

It's time for something more entertaining than the depressing droll from last entry, oui?  First, go play ljdq [although it's actually weekly] if you don't already.  I received last week's Geek of the Week Award.  How cool (or uncool, depending on your point of view) is that?

I finished my algebra problem set--on time, too!  Hooray!  Now all I have to do is keep up and do all the homework I didn't do in the process of finishing that assignment.  [Trust me, it's starting to pile, but I think I understand most of it.]  Check!

I finished the first draft of writing assignment the first this afternoon just before class.  Check!

I did my laundry last night.  Check!

I'm making progress on multivariable.  [check pending]

I still haven't done my French homework yet.  This weekend won't help because I'll be gone all of Friday afternoon and most of the day Saturday for the Emerging Leaders retreat.  I have to show off a "talent" of some sort for the "talent" show Friday [tomorrow!] night.  I have no idea what talent I'm going to show off, as I can't sing, play a musical instrument, or do any amazing bodily feats.  Maybe I'll just tell a joke.

Now I guess I should pack.  I still haven't done that yet.  Eep.

Sing! Bohemian Rhapsody. Or Ina Godda Davita. La Cucaracha! There's millions of songs that are simple to sing. It's always a great ice breaker, and if it's something people know, they may join in!

Or, if that fails, just regail them with math jokes?

Apparently you haven't heard my singing voice. It really is that bad.

And I really did think about the math jokes. "Let epsilon be less than zero..."

But see, just because someone thinks they can't sing, really shouldn't stop them from doing it. I know I can't sing, but I still do it.

And use the good math jokes: "What happens as epsilon goes to zero? There goes the neighbourhood".

Or some of the worst jokes known to man:
Q - "What do you call cheese that isn't yours?"
A - Nacho Cheese!

"Two pies are in the oven, and one says to the other. The first one says "Is it hot in here, or is it just me?" And the second pie exclaims "Oh my god, a talking pie!"

Fantabulous Award
Fantabulous award, girlfriend. Completely up my alley:) Geek of the Week would have been my award in college, too, as I was more studious than some of my friends. (After freshman year, at least! Some of us have to learn the hard way, I suppose.)

Re: Fantabulous Award
Thanks! I'm the same way with my study habits, but that's probably because of my course schedule.

You have a right to be. Last time I was excited to be quoted after just three weeks. Congratulations!
