7 Things I learned this week #16

1. When sending resumes and cover letters via e-mail it is best to send them both as an attachment with a short and sweet message in the e-mail itself.  (applying for jobs is hard)
2. I can make up my own recipes rather than just using someone else's. I made tequila-jalapeno baked tilapia for fish tacos. It turned out pretty well. I am a culinary genius.
3. Google Chrome's spell check doesn't recognize tilapia as being properly spelled. I actually second-guessed myself and googled it to make sure it was correct (it is.)
4. Before a new doge of Venice could be selected he had to be presented to the public accompanying the phrase "This is your doge, if it pleases you" despite the fact that the new doge was selected by an exclusive group mostly comprised of noble families. The things you learn from Assassin's Creed 2.
5. Snapple Fact #21: Almonds are part of the peach family.
6. Cardigan Welsh Corgis have tales, whereas Pembroke Welsh Corgis do not. 
7. Stanford had a list of classes recommended for athletes to "accommodate their demanding schedules." Translation: they actually distributed a list of easy classes to boost athletes' GPAs. Respect points lost: 50. 

Those were the days...

This was my wikifire page, word for word, character for character. My life was so different Freshman and Sophomore years of college when the majority of this was written. I decided it was time for its run to come to an end. 

Sara is beautiful. She is an international relations major, economics minor that is very nice. She wears skirts when it is warm out because they are comfortable, not because she cares about what she looks like.

Her hair also smells really nice all the time. If you get a chance, you should smell it. It is also very soft and silky. The ideal situation would be to pet her hair and get to smell it. Good luck with your mission.
Sara has no idea who wrote the above comment and is kind of creeped out at the thought of random people petting/smelling her hair. She asks you to please refrain from such activity, or at least ask permission before doing so.

Sara was born in [[Las Vegas]] and she will defend the little honor the city has left until her death.  She enjoys long walks in the parks and quite often she is confused with men.

One of her favorite pastimes is framing [[Daniel Dyrda]] for things.  This is facilitated by her passing imitation of his handwriting.

Sara is a member of [[German Club]] and [[ATP]]. She also has a radio show on [[WVKC]] with a partner under an assumed identity ([[Eleanor Rigby]]).

==The Many Noises of Sara==
Sometimes when she wakes up she makes wookie noises, that don't actually sound like wookies. She can play a myriad of instruments, including a recently acquired bass guitar.

Sara also has a variety of noises that indicate when she is hungry, tired, confused, etc. Perhaps one day there will be a media file that documents the sounds Sara makes in her natural habitat while in one of these situations.

== Procrastination Almost Turned Into A Sport ==
Taking [[procrastination]] to a new level is something Sara is very adamant about.  A two-page paper can take her weeks to write.  This accomplishment is only thanks to [[Facebook]], [[Wikifire]], [[Myspace]], [[AIM]], and various comics online.  However, procrastinating in this rare art form is not taken too far, as her missing a deadline is a very rare occurrence.

Another thing that lends to Sara's procrastinatory efforts are the multiple video game consoles in the living room of Naked House.  With an NES, Super NES, and an N64 all stocked with a variety of games how can one be expected to do homework?

==Claim to Fame==

On May 26, 2007, Sara, as well as friends [[Tasha Coryell]] and [[Daniel Dyrda]] were declared "cool people" on [[Bill Mayeroff]]'s [[WVKC]] radio show [[Bill's Beatles Bonanza]]. [[Bill Mayeroff|Bill]] revoked the title on Oct. 8, 2007 because Sara isn't proud of something she should be. The others got to keep their titles.

But Bill restored Sara's title at 10:48 p.m. Central time on Oct. 24, 2007. He decided he did not want to have to deal with the paperwork associated with revoking a status like that.

Things I Learned This Week #15

1. Speed bumps are also referred to as "sleeping policemen." I found this while trying to figure out what you call the little circular or rectangular reflector things they put on the roads in Las Vegas (I'm sure they use them elsewhere, but Vegas is just where I remember from when I was a child) that were kind of bumpy, but never figured out what those are actually called. I shall continue to call them do-hickeys. If you know what they are called, please tell me.

2. Heart disease is the number one killer of American women. (Related: February was heart disease awareness month)
3. One is a cannolo, more than one are cannoli.(In case you don't know what I am talking about, go here.)
4. Bald Eagles go "bald" at age five when they reach maturity.
5. Snapple Fact #173: Chinese is the most spoken language in the world. And they are so worried about learning English.
6. The Illusionist is the best cartoon movie I have seen in a very long time. I think it should have beaten Toy Story 3 for that Oscar. 
7. The Peace Corps is 50 years old this month. I wonder if it will go out and buy a red sports car to cruise around the world in.
