I read Game of Thrones before I saw the show, which made the show more predictable. My friend, however, saw the show and is now reading the books, and I imagine it’s a lot easier to keep track of the characters since she’d seen them physically interact before. Pick your poison!

Holiday Shopping False Advertising

Need a last-minute stocking stuffer? How about you buy a 40″ LED TV? AND PUT IT IN A STOCKING:Holiday Shopping False Advertising

Seriously… it’s like advertisers don’t even care anymore. Soon, communication is going to deteriorate into just using buzzwords all the time. Now excuse me while I blog my app to curate something viral on social media… Google.

Best Pickup Line Ever

In the summer of 2006, I played saxophone and clarinet in the pit orchestra at Starlight Theater in Rockford for “State Fair,” a Rodgers and Hammerstein musical about the Iowa State Fair (originally adapted from a book by Phil Stong, a Drake University graduate – go bulldogs!).

Anyway, a lot of the dialogue was a bit, um… well, cheesy. Apparently at one point, one of the characters awkwardly says “Can I buy you a corn dog or something?” I was not satisfied with that bit of dialogue, however, so I revised it for him:

2006Summer Corn Doggin

 

“Can I give you a corn doggin’ or something?”
-Best pickup line ever

So… that’s a thing that happened.

English ASSignment

20001112 English ASSignment

There are a few gems scattered among my notes from November 2, 2000:

“Occasionally I read something that isn’t good… like, your papers.”
-My sophomore English teacher

As well as some fun notes I took, including emphasizing “ASSignment” (see image) and writing the following note to myself:

Write a dialog (Cody: Bite me! Jon: Die!)
(like a script) on “Justice”

I wonder how ancient Greek philosophers would feel about the notes I wrote alongside their timeless ideas?

Macroeconomics Gone Wrong: The Ratchet Effect

Yes, my teacher is responsible for the large green "PRAY" written across the page.

November 15, 2001: Question #4 on my macroeconomics quiz, junior year of high school:

Question 4. Graph and explain the ratchet effect (in detail as usual).

Answer: like a ratchet, it can turn one way, but not the other way

(Teacher note: “lol!”)

The money shot here is that after grading my test – on which I received a 15/60 – my teacher wrote, in thick green marker across the entire page: PRAY

Yes, I’m serious… my teacher actually handed my paper back with “PRAY” written across it. He was a hilarious guy, though, seriously! I’m glad he re-paid the laugh I gave him with my ridiculous answer to the final question on the quiz.
