Nick thinks it's funny that the kids think they can lie about stuff that is easily found out. LIke "Yes, I brushed my teeth>" Oh, really? Then why is the sink dry and, your toothbrush is dry?

I had a phase like that where I'd wet my toothbrush and the sink but not brush my teeth. I'd also put my seatbelt across my lap but not buckle it (such a rebel...). Then I figured out if I was doing all that work to lie, I should just maybe *do* it and be done.

I had a really nasty flashback when I saw the photo of the Tri Delts. I'm so glad to see that after so many years, nothing has changed. <sarcasm font needed>

So not one girl would stand up to the powers that be? Wimps. They should be all over this, contacting the media, creating a very uncomfortable conversations with them, making a stink and making the advisors and the administrators squirm big time.

I hope people start standing up here.

No, several girls did. But the alums outvoted/outranked them.

Have you seen the Twitter backlash against the AMERICAN woman of Indian descent that won the Miss America contest yesterday? Seriously, what year is it again? 1913?

I was exhausted after watching that!

I'm surprised that girls at that age didn't get more dramatic about it. You'd think they'd be more willing to go up against the people who are outvoting/outranking them.

I wasn't in a sorority so I don't know how difficult it would be to go against them. I'd like to think I'd give it more effort than they did but, as I said, I was never in a sorority.

It's like people think that being a "country of immigrants" is only awesome if those immigrants are white.

And I LOVE the idiots that equate India with al qaeda. Clearly not paying attention in class.

So Tonka Jr. comes down to the living room and tells me that mom said since he's 7 now, he can go to sleep later, at either 8:50 or 9pm, and that I'm supposed to choose. First I've heard of this, so I say 8:50. The 4 yr old comes down and they want to watch tv. So I let them watch the kids on demand channel. At 8:20, the older one tells the other, we have time for one more show, then it will be 8:30 and you have to go to bed, but I don't have to go to bed till 8:50 cause I'm older. Younger one starts wailing that that's not fair. I quietly head upstairs and say good job, MOM. And tell her what just went on. That little stinker. She says she never said any such thing. So I call him up and stone cold bust him.

Few things in college are more political than the Greek system.

Great game, but now that's twice in a row where they got lucky. I'm not so sure about them this season. We shall see.

I think they were lacking a lot in defense and in offensive communication. They did show, however, the desire and the ability to win when they want to.

I could NOT believe they won. It was a phenomenal end.
