Wish me luck

I take my GRE exam today...and I need to do really well in order to get into a kick-ass Ph.D. program.

So, I need lots of good luck.

Anyone psychically sending me happy thoughts and good-luck vibes will be handsomely rewarded: I'll let you come to a Notre Dame football game with me if I end up there! :)

(Because, let's face it...even though Notre Dame has a great Political Science program, the only reason I'm actually applying there is for the football games. And to surreptitiously start the "Rudy chant" in crowded places on a regular basis. I'm easily amused.)

"This may be due, at least in part, to an increasing desire for gender-neutral language"

Gee, now THERE's a rebuttal. "Due?" Nothing is due or owed! This is TERRIBLE grammar.

Stay on topic,ass-hat.

I am a pacifist, but I really wish I knew you so I could punch you in the nose.

Flamingo, it's a shame you have to resort to such ad hominem attacks. By the way, you should have put a space immediately between your first comma and "ass-hat."

Good luck, Jones. You own the GRE, I know it! Hell, even I did all right on it, and I'm not cool all the time like you.

Go! Go! Go Flamingo!

Thanks jenny and ian. I think I did OK.

anonymous, seriously...why are you here? Answer that for me, will you? You don't like me, you don't like my blog, so just go away. Maybe instead of hanging out here pissing me off, you should watch Bambi...Thumper's parents have some interesting lessons on what you should do when you can't say something nice.

Wow, you certainly haven't seemed to learn those lessons yourself. You're the one who has called me an "asshole" and an "ass-hat," and even threatened me with physical violence. I didn't say anything nearly that bad, even when I was loaded. And I even went so far as to apologize the next day, but you'd have none of it.

I am sorry if you and Ian take attacks on YOUR GRAMMAR personally...It really could use some work, though.

Ah, but see, this is MY blog. That's the thing. And I didn't threaten you with physical violence, I just said that that's what I would LIKE to do. And as for the asshole thing, I call it like I see it. You act like an asshole, I call you one.

And as for your "apology," if any of the kids I work with tried to pass THAT off as an apology to me, I'd have to haul out my "don't say it if you don't mean it" lecture. But none of them would do that, because even though they're teenagers and emotionally disturbed, THEY know better.

This is the last thing I will ever say to you, write it down if you have to: Go away please. You are bad company and I don't like you. You add nothing to my life or my blog. Go negatively seek the attention you so obviously crave elsewhere, please. Please.

I am leaving for now. But, you will say much more to me in the future. That's called "foreshadowing." Bye for now.

Jones, have you considered using Blogger's comment moderation feature? It's troll insurance.
