Not contributing money to the school? Hiding the fact that you graduated from a particular school? Exactly how does someone move on? And WHY would you want to do it? Just like GatorGrad, I am proud of the scool I came from and see no reason to bury it as part of my past.
Well well, it looks like gatorgrad's wife chimed in. If your husband hadn't been so quick to lecture others on their grammar...

I'm sure you're just as stuck on yourself as he is...grow up and move on.

So now because my moniker is gatorgrad i dwell on the past and consider them my 'glory days'? Not likely, but I do have great pride in my school and what it shaped me to be, where I met my wife and made great memories.
And to answer your question 3 languages...English, Spanish and sign...the sign is very basic though, so you don't have to count that one if you don't want ;-)
How about you?
Sure you do **chuckles** that's why you were so quick to reply before. Move on and take your wife (i love tonka with you).

You didn't answer my question. What does moving on entail? There are a multitude of great universities in this country with large, proud, and involved alumni bases. So all of those people are stuck in the past, huh? They need to move on? The only people with an attitude like yours are people who did not go to college, or did not enjoy their college experience.

I was never asked the question genius. Some poster just said...why don't you ask gatorgrad how many languages he knows or something like that...I was asked by you, so I responded...funny how you didn't answer MY question...ah well, I guess the shoe is on the other foot, or you just didn't have time between your classes to respond.

I already explained that in my earlier post. If you can't comprehend then it's apparent you didn't go to college. Last time now...get over it, move on, grow up...

First, thank you for recognizing my cerebral superiority.

Second, I didn't ask you either. Since you want to try and pick apart the posts (I can only guess you're doing this from lack of ideas) then you'll realize that I simply asked 'why' you didn't answer the question. I never asked you the question directly. Poor attempt at trying to prove your intellect.

Continuing...so because you got your feelings hurt you're trying to turn things around on me...again predictable. You made a comment to another poster criticizing their grammar. You got called out on it and exposed. I wasn't the only one that recognized this...there are others that responded. Well, until The Lone Ranger theme began playing in the background and 'I Like Tonka' came galloping to your rescue.

And btw, taking Spanish I & II in college doesn't mean you speak the language. Unless you took the appropriate number of classes in high school, all students are required foreign language credits in Florida Universities. The easiest of these is Spanish and Italian. The poster you criticized was writing English, which was not their native language and is one of the most difficult to learn...especially write.

And finally because I know you're so upset now that you can't let it go...I only know two languages, English and Korean. I too took Spanish in school and often speak it with others but I don't consider myself Spanish speaking just because I can understand some of it. There now, do you feel better? If you want to continue calling me a student that's fine with me...in fact I like it. It shows that a student is getting the best of a college graduate. Now go kiss Mrs. GatorGrad (aka 'I Like Tonka') and you two have a nice dinner together.

Wow, for a college grad you sure sound like a whiny child.

Repeating the same mantra over and over is not explaining anything. What is there to get over. People get over traumatic experiences, divorces, death of a loved one. You make no sense.

<quoted text> I think that is abusive. I have not always agreed with what J has written, but as a woman, I too, don't think that it is proper to breast feed in public unless the breast is covered. It is simply that while BF is very natural, our society doesn't feel comfortable with it. There are so many perverts out there, I would not encourage your wife to do this without covering up. I am an educated and liberal person, and while I totally agree with BF anywhere, the fact is that it isn't an accepted practice. This will change over time if women remain active in promoting it. I liken this to a time when it wasn't acceptable to wear shorts, kiss, in public. Attitudes change. And while BF is for nourishment of an infant and necessary, and it looks like cf apples to oranges, really it is a societal norm.
It is not ok to kiss in public. this is so discusting when i will wait into the line at chipotle and so two peoples will stand in front of me and do this in front of me. Why? cannot they do this some place in private and not while i wait to have to eat and see some rude people lick each others discuting greasy face? and these people are pathological creatures because they must have the attention of other peoples all of the time. just like breatstfeeder in public. and it is the same for these couples who must sit onto the same side of the table at restatuanet instead of across from one another like human beings. these people have always the desire to feel significant because someone looks upon them. or they d not have anything to say to each other so they must watch other peoples eat like they watch a tv show while they eat dinner on their couch.

I think it's funny how you call me predictable and immature yet you keep blabbering about Tonka and myself as if you were jealous that someone else doesn't share your opinion. And you wondered why I called you a child? I'm waiting for the response to be 'first comes love...then comes marriage...' LOL!

Maybe I should be saying the same thing about you and Jagamunda or whatever her name is since YOU seem to be 'galloping' to her rescue.

As for the language thing, I actually didn't take Spanish in college, I took the exam and placed out of it, but I did take Italian when I studied abroad...fantastic, but anyway, I digress...

You can keep antagonizing me all you want. Doesn't really make me mad, it's quite flattering really. Pretty impressive on the Korean as well, I think that would be a huge advantage to know a language like that, as well as very challenging...make sure you capitalize on that in your career.

It's been fun bantering with you and hopefully you didn't take it all too seriously.

I don't quite get the over enthusiastic guys with the color on their faces and wearing team logos everywhere. That is beyond team spirit or whatever you call it. I like my college teams, but some people go way overboard. It's weird.

I don't think they're using it as an excuse for exposing themselves. I just think they're so wrapped up in and absorbed with their own maternity that they get aggressively activist about breastfeeding, as though the world should cater to the demands of a nursing mother, the whole world should revolve around them, and they can't understand why it doesn't. Despite the existence of the baby, it's an extreme form of
self-absorption.
My oh My! U do have a Dirty Lil Ol Mind, now dontcha? How is feeding a baby self-absorption? That statement is a contradiction in terms!

I really think you should just stop leaving comments until you can spell right. Do you even realize how hard it is to read your posts because your illiterate?! You must be one of those immigrants who demand that we natives of this country cater to you and your language!!!
