So this picture appears on the digital signs and video boards at UVU's campus:
You'd think, wouldn't you
Well, come to find out it's nearly as weird:
You think my last few posts have been nerdy? How about the idea I had Monday morning right after I woke up: Create a bracket of 32 verbs for my students to fill out à la March Madness.
So I totally made the thing before classes this morning, complete with regions based on how the verbs conjugate in the present tense. I am now in the running for the world's biggest nerd.
And if you want to play along, which I know you all do, here's the link to the spreadsheet and the link to the PDF. 3 points for a win, 2 bonus points if you pick an upset victory, like 8-seed Butler beating 1-seed Pitt. Finally 5 bonus points if you get the champion correct, and 4 bonus if you get the runner-up correct.
You know I'm going to totally post the victories for each round as they happen.
I have a tendency to leave errrrr... goofy pictures of Tom Jones and The Hoff in a coworker's office and office drawers, just for funsies, you know. I even had her convinced that the Germans celebrated something called Hoffmas, which occurs during the fortnight 90 to 75 days before Easter.
Sting just released a great album called Symphonicities. I told my boss about the album, and I also happened to mention that I thought Sting was rather sexy.
I get to work today and, after a while, I open up my drawer and see this, which had me belly laughing, in tears for about 3 minutes before I regained my composure:
