Wait, this question is going to be embarrassing but I am curious. Is Tupper Ware a BUNNY? I thought that he / she was a dog? Seriously :oops:

MrsTrucker: Really? Yes, Tupper is a bunny. :D He is a pure breed Holland Lop (about 3.5 lbs), and totally deaf. His favorite foods are parsley, cilantro, carrots, bananas, craisens, and mini wheats!! :lol:

Edit: He does act like a dog at times!

He's even cuter as a bunny than as a dog for some reason.

EDIT: I'm really glad that I didn't tell any stories about the roast rabbit that I had recently.

Now, I dig Turco, and I think he is WAAAY underrated right now. What a stud. He is absolutely amazing to watch.

I'm going to see him play in January!!!! So stocked!!! Seats practically behind him :D:D:D[/quote]

Wow, I want to congratulate you for that as though it were an acceptance or something, lol. That would be awesome though, I haven't been to a game in a LONG time. Never been to an NHL game though, only the WHL/IHL type games.

Lol, I totally still own copies of the Mighty Ducks, 1-3. Mike Modanno guest-starred in one of them. Emilio Esteves. Classic. :lol:[/quote]
Totally classic I just re watched them a little while ago...WHL games are sick to watch too I love going...hockey is just by far the best sport at all levels :) Nothing like a good beer league game with lots to drink[/quote]

Agreed. I think they must sell a hockey game soundtrack to all WHL games though, because have you ever noticed that when they start playing it's always "hit me with your best shot....c'mon, fire awaaaay...." and when they are going to the box it's "you've got blood on your face, you big disgrace....." lol....Love it.

Binkies are bunnies expression of joy. Tupper will binky when running around the house at top speed (something I have named the Bunn-anapolis 500). Here is a video of one from youtube:

Wow. Well, I'm sure that you see a lot of binky-ing considering the care that you take of him. :D

MrsTrucker: Thank you! :D I think he tries to hide his binkies. He does it when I'm not looking, or hides behind something. He must think it's undignified or something ;)

He's probably trying to hide it so that you think he's not happy enough and do even more for him. :wink:

I'm with ya, Robin... I really am... I keep looking over the notes for my final tomorrow and then coming back to TLS and lurking.

So... dinged again this cycle. 0-2 right out of the gate... I figured that, with a top 5% LSAT score and almost 20 years between my first attempt at school, that my 4.0 would hold more water than the LSDAS grade calculation that refuses to accept the passage of time and/or the retaking of classes.

Or (arguing in the alternative) that if the schools still looked at my GPA: they would see for themselves that I came back and had perfect marks in all my classes since returning to school four years ago. OR, failing in that, I thought that maybe they actually weren't blowing smoke when they said that they took a holistic approach to reviewing applications and my decade of successful management experience would carry me through... Or, failing in even that, the fact that I will be entering with a post-grad degree from a highly respected insitution in my field, also with a 4.0 GPA, would hold some weight with Adcoms.

None of these, apparently, are true stories. They look at two numbers, and decide whether or not you can hack it from these figures. Running a multi-million dollar company with a perfect graduating GPA and top LSAT score means nothing, if you made a mistake 20 years ago. For traditional applicants, it would be analgous to rejecting someone because they failed handwriting in the fourth grade.

Sigh... I came here hoping that someone could right the Optimism ship for me. It's listing to the side where I am standing and threatening to capsize. :|


MrsTrucker: NOOOOOO...We must keep this ship afloat!! Jackalope, you know you will get into a good school. The first two dings are just flukes. They didn't know what they were doing when they rejected such a wonderful person. Poop on them!! They are not worthy of you anyways! You will find a school that is great, and that will give you and nice fat scholarship! I can feel it! Don't despair, all hope is not lost!! You are awesome, you know this!! :D
