If you're looking for a way to get scholarships for college, I highly recommend FastWeb. Signing up with them probably takes 30 minutes (they want to know enough about you that they don't have to load you with every single possible scholarship out there...), but it's well worth it.

Josh had a cool post that I'd like to share with you:

Ways to Maintain a Healthy Level of Insanity

1. At lunch time, sit in your parker car with sunglasses on and point a hair dryer at passing cars. See if they slow down.

2. Page yourself over the intercom. Don't disguise your voice.

3. Every time someone asks you to do something, ask if they want fries with that.

4. Put your garbage can on your desk and label it "In".

5. Put decaf in the coffee maker for 3 weeks. Once everyone has gotten over their caffeine addictions, switch to espresso.

6. In the memo field of all your checks, write "For Smuggling Diamonds".

7. Finish all your sentences with "In Accordance With The Prophecy".

8. Dont use any punctuation

9. As often as possible, skip rather than walk.

10. Order a diet water whenever you go out to eat, with a serious face.

11. Specify that your drive-through order is "To Go".

12. Sing along at the opera

13. Go to a poetry recital and ask why the poems don't rhyme.

14. Put mosquito netting around your work area and play tropical sounds all day.

15. Five days in advance, tell your friends you can't attend their party because you're not in the mood.

16. Have your co-workers address you by your wrestling name, Rock Bottom.

17. When the money comes out of the ATM, scream "I won! I won!"

18. When leaving the zoo, start running towards the parking lot, yelling, "Run for your lives! They're loose!"

19. Tell your children over dinner, "Due to the economy, we are going to have to let one of you go."

I really need to try some of these. Especially numbers 1, 3, 12, 17 and 18. In no particular order.

I'd be happy to hear your results, Josh :-)

Ditto. My favorite is probably number 5 (MARK, NATE...) :P 1, 4, 7, 10, and 12 are also fun-looking, though. Let's try it at Gold! Woo hoo!

The Angers have an ex-police cruiser...but the windows are almost too tinted! Yeah, the Gold's going to be interesting. Of course, we should support our fellow debaters and speakers...

No, you would never need #5. :P *insert strong sarcasm* LOL
