3, 2, 1. 3. It's a cruise ship going through a park. Oh wait, there's water under it. It's not a great picture, but it is so artificial that it feels ironic. 2. I'm not sure what it has to do with the environment, but it is pretty in the conventional sense. 1. Too much thinking.
I'm only here to read what you have to write and you are so strong. :-) I'll try White Bear's substitution exercise on my male friends' (including me) most recent Facebook statuses. 1. "I'm better now. (if only I could lose the f***ing headache...)" = I have a penis. 2. "Is looking forward to a weekend with my second family. And by "second family" I mean the one no one knows about." = I have a penis. 3. "saw an ad to learn twitter in under an hour using a four-part video course. I now want to cry." = I have a penis. 4. "FUCK YOU. FUCK YOU YOU FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT!" = I have a penis. 5. "I ♥ Katies new hair cut!!! It is amazing!!!!" = I have a penis. 6. "The internets is slow today" = I have a penis. 7. "is about to watch Lefty" = I have a penis. 8. "Were it so easy." = I have a penis. 9. " this keeps getting better and better...finished for tonight aaaaand don't have to work sunday night.... BAM!!!!! BAM!!!!" = I have a penis. 10. "woke up unexpectedly. Maybe I should blog." = I have a penis. And being seven is truly awesome, because men need reminding that just because we have penii, we don't need to be pricks.

But we'll be sad if you don't write long posts anymore, Megan. Unless they're all pithy posts about water.

Add: If you're considering grad school, read Sherry's post about dilettantes. A masters degree will often get you in the door in industry and they're frequently cheaper.

Class of 2009, you will be faced with the career or relationship dilemma. If you postpone starting your own family you are only delaying the problem, but the delay gives you valuable time to throw your all into your career or your interests (if they do not coincide). If you're cynical enough, try a starter marriage in your early 20s, just don't have kids. You might miss the most fun things you could ever do. Or you might avoid years of stupidity. Or both. If you ever have a professional job where you do not have a mentor, get a new job. Unless the money is so good that you can ride out months of unemployment when the economy or industry crashes, you're wasting your time if you're not learning. Be professional. Network. Don't burn bridges on purpose. Most importantly, understand expectations. Don't listen to Sherry about jobs, interests, or people that have you vowing to improve. Sometimes that extra motivation is all you need to finally get in shape, start eating right, master Excel, or learn to work for 24 hours straight. On the other hand, sometimes you need to fail to understand your interests and limitations. On the tertiary hand, sometimes you need to fail to understand that you have a problem: intimacy issues, addiction, or mental issues.

Are you trying to confuse us Robin? You do mean EDT, right?
