Finals

I always become semi-nauseous before final exams at my University (where they're obviously done a bit later than usual) because I know I must pass all the exams with at least a reasonable mark (which is no simple task for me!), since you can't take that bloody CPA exam without having a certain grade point average. I also started college quite late, and I wouldn't be able to bear the prospect of having to take an entire class over and stay even longer because of a few hours that should have been spent studying...

As an aside; I recently recalled that there were a number of posts I had intended to have up here a long while ago that were left in eternal limbo in draft form, since at the times they were meant to be posted they (for different reasons) seemed to be discourses that somewhat did not suit the time. One, strangely enough, was meant to be about the romantic life of Elinor Roosevelt(!), another about art...and the third about a YouTube video (if I correctly recall). G-d willing they shall find their place here in the not too distant future.

(By the way, I've seen people write "G_d" as so, recently. To me it seems to make a bit more visual sense in English than the dash; as if to say a letter is missing, as opposed to the somewhat meaningless "G-d").

I didn't know you were majoring in accounting.

Your making the deadline?

By the way, it's funny you found Rachel through her comments on my blog, as I always just considered myself someone who comments on her blog! (Take that Rachel!) : P

The Babysitter said...

That's a shame, ahh interesting that would be good if you don't have to pay for it.

lol, yea it is funny.

Rachel said...

Funny, I came here hoping to see someone complaining here about some blog harrassment going on on her blog (I told her you're the one to complain to about such things). I didn't think she'd actually come, but one of these days you WILL get a complaint (I hope). Is that too much to ask for to get a laugh?

Then I see you're sort of (sort of) mocking me too.

Pfff, Chriqs.

Well, if it's any consolation to you that I don't comment here frequently... I do read the posts.

Hey, Babysitter. Which deadline?

From BBC Worldwide, this has been Clair Bullockson, from news liar.

The Babysitter said...

Rachel: I gotta come back to reading your blog...

deadline = Aug 2009. For New Yorkers who want to take the CPA exam. They have to have a BA by that time. Otherwise they will need 150 credits, or a masters.

Rachel: I'm telling you man, this here is the "תחנה מרכזית", if anyone knows about you, it's because of me, ok?!

Re: BBC thing- Oh man, did you see Sabra's videos? The last one on one of those posts was so funny I was thinking about it all day! ..yo, I should tell her that..

Rachel said...

Tachanah merkazit? I feel like I should have a fresh comeback... but I'm all out.

link me to which video.

הצעיר שלמה בן רפאל לבית שריקי ס"ט said...

Haha!'lomo- one. Rachel zer...come to think of it, I think it's actually 1-up now! ; )

umm, I'm not sure how to do that, but it's the bottom video in her January 14th post..

Rachel said...

the video is no longer available.

Rachel said...

(Btw, imagine what you want... but it's more like Rachel- 10, Shlomo- 0.5.)

הצעיר שלמה בן רפאל לבית שריקי ס"ט said...

Holy s--- man! I just checked it out; it's gone!

Haha. Don't worry Rachel; you will be toppled! You and your bank of ghouls, goblins, gremlins, gargoyles and all the other nasty little creatures that start with a G that you have!

....did I just say that??!

הצעיר שלמה בן רפאל לבית שריקי ס"ט said...

I said "bank", I obviously meant "band" (although they're on opposite ends of the keyboard!).

Hold up...hold up- I think I just found it on YouTube (it's still up). It's like an Israeli TV show..

Rachel said...

Nope, funny, but not as funny as the other one. (I've been laughing about that one for days.)

הצעיר שלמה בן רפאל לבית שריקי ס"ט said...

Oh, come on; "אנחנו עושים הכל שביכולתינו..י". He's saying "I'm so big because I've eaten two Palestinian children"! ..it's a little too Israeli maybe, but I'd rate it over yours anyday! ...you and your gargoyles!

Rachel said...

Uh, did you miss these!?:
"oppressed livestock"
"children sending notes of love and peace to Israelis by missles"
"what?...oh!...look at that...I think they did.. yes, yes!... they did it!...the missile has landed... looks like a dog and an old lady were vaporized, but only a small price to pay for the sake of peace in the middle east."

...and that BRITISH accent. Pfffff!

הצעיר שלמה בן רפאל לבית שריקי ס"ט said...

Yeah, I don't know..after the first minute it started losing from it's novelty, and started become a bit too obvious. ..homor is all about absudity..after that's lost it's not funny..which is why skits like those should keep it short (which is also why "Saturday Night Live" is not funny..too long..

GASPPP!!!

Way cool! You guys are talking about me and more importantly how cool my video is!! (yes, rachel, you are) (and yes, it's my video)

Shlomo!You sure should have come and told me that you enjoyed it. That would've made me happy. Agav, today I was thinking about it and I cracked up to myself at the table. To myself and by myself. Yea.
But back to the topic at hand--ALWAYS tell sabra when you appreciate her stuff!

הצעיר שלמה בן רפאל לבית שריקי ס"ט said...

yes, you've become quite the star here and you're missing it all! (I had the same feeling when I saw you guys were discussing me once!).

the sabra said...

Once?
Rachel-he doesn't know about the other six blogs we have?
And what is this? You don't check CNN??
