I'm one of those "change my GChat status on occasion" people, and earlier today noted that I need a vacation. Later, I saw a bunch of statii (it's a word, ask Stam) noting that people were 'getting ready to fly back for school' 'sitting in the library all day' 'celebrating their birthday and first day of med school' - etc. So I changed my status to the following:
I may hate work, but seeing that everyone else is going back to school sure makes me happy that at least I'm done with that...!
A couple of minutes later, AlanLaz
sent me the following from the library:
(yes, it's a word)ReplyDelete
(and i'm not starting school either, whoo hoo!!!!!!)ReplyDelete
I have a diploma.ReplyDelete
Shouldn't it be stati? Alumni is plural for alumnus; radii is plural for radius.ReplyDelete
(Don't mind me; I'm still in school, and am in a pedantic mood, for some reason)
you are sooooooo not finished with school!ReplyDelete
What's wrong with school? Call me a dork (and I know you will), but I love school!ReplyDelete
I will take school over work anytime:ReplyDelete
1 - A continuous chance to expand my knowledge.
2 - The opportunity to study something I love.
3 - Summer and winter vacation.
4 - I don't get stuck doing the same things over and over again...for different clients.
5 - If I want to call in sick, I'm usually not penalized for it.
and many, many more.
I echo SJ. (But you probably knew that.)ReplyDelete
I hear ya. To quote one my favorite fictional characters:
Chandler - Alright kids, I gotta get to work. If I don't input those numbers... it doesn't make much of a difference.
Don't get me wrong, it's not like I hate my job but I prefer the halls of higher learning.
I think there's a very simple way to fix all this. We need to contcat "The Wave" and tell them about all our trief chickens. We'll use the kids at risk to spread the word which trying to solve the Shidduch Crisis. In doing so, we can hopefully lower our school's cost per child thereby lowering tuition and concentrating more on on implmenting kosher eruvs.....oh, wait a sec...Sorry guys, wrong topic.ReplyDelete
Stam - :DReplyDelete
Diana - What's that?!
JoshM - (shakes head sadly) No no no, it's statii. No matter what the dictionary says.
:) - Of course I am...! :P
SJ - Not a dork. A... ummm... well, something. :P
Moshe - 1: True everywhere, but at least I get paid.
2: Well, my stuff isn't too bad, but even if not, at least I get paid.
3: Yeah, I miss those, but those get boring quickly anyway. Plus, vacations don't get you money.
4: Me neither! :P Plus, I get paid.
5: Me neither. In school I sometimes did, though. Plus, I get paid.
Plus, in addition to all of that, I get paid!
Shoshana - Yeah, I kinda guessed. :P
G - LOL. Sadly, amen.
Scraps - :)
Rea - Later, later...
