That is our furbaby, Tupper Ware. If that doesn't make you smile, you belong on the other boat!! LOL


Awwww <3.

Playing Farmville on facebook is also an incredible cheerer-upper. Sets you in the rhythm of planting and harvesting, the simple life jazz.


Well, congratulations on another day of no e-mails from Georgetown....Almost in the clear. Expecting everybody to start posting acceptances from their top choices soon. Mrs. Trucker, welcome aboard the Optimism. Our ship is humble and small, but quite strong. :D


MrsTrucker: Happy to be aboard, y'all! :D We shall keep this ship afloat! Everyone will get into a great school, and we all will win the lottery by Christmas, so all of our tuition to these great schools will be paid !!

No, No, No, Mrs. Trucker...The lottery money is to by drinks for the house when we get accepted with full scholarships + stipends. Drinks are on me if you are in the states of Washington or Oregon! :D

Aren't you guys a trifle embarrassed to be so thoroughly outgunned by the eyepatch-and-bandana crew over on USS Bitter Pessimism? :wink:

Keep the good karma rolling, people...I'm sure that you'll all have a wonderful holiday season! :D

Not outgunned, managamy, just outnumbered. It's like China v. the US...One billion patch-eyed naysayers won't hold up to the good-morale and long-guns of our crew. I don't even think Mtal's harsh pessimism could hold up to TruckerD's wife's good spirit and kindness. :wink:

Welcome aboard SanBun! So tomorrow is the big day for us at Gtown, huh? I actually feel pretty good about it. If we are in the clear tomorrow with e-mails, I'm sure we are in.

Poor Veritas, he's been seen scrubbing the decks of the Pessimism. :(

I am optimistic about RD, FT, DR 12/1 batch because I refuse to believe that gtown would be rejecting anyone at 170+ this early in the cycle...

SOMEONE BE OPTIMISTIC AND TELL ME I'M RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!

You're right. Plus, we haven't gotten an e-mail in 5 days, and they said 3-5 days for letters or e-mails to go out. That should be easy optimism. :D

Ouch. Surely China-bashing doesn't belong on this sunny thread. Otherwise, I completely agree. :D

Thank you for not hurling me off your ship as did the villainous buccaneers downstream, who seem determined to interpret kindness as condescension.

theory: my extensive experience in academia allowed me to right an incredibly complex personal statement that is simply over the heads of the deans of all the schools ive applied to. once they find someone even more knowledge than i (a search that obviously takes a lot of time and resources) to translate my ps into layman's terms, they will be so eager to snatch me up that the acceptances will come rushing in

Eh. They have me framed as their quintessential villain: Darth Vader, Stalin, Iago, Big Brother all rolled into one horrific individual. But I feel that I have made them happier by offering them target practice; they just don't seem to have realized it. :wink:

you're a narcissist and probably an ego maniac. You'd make a good lawyer, but you're unlikely to ever be given the opportunity.

From Harvard? It doesn't take an optimist to believe she will be given the chance...In fact, she may end up being your boss. :lol:
