Fellowship, but not of the Ring
« on: February 10, 2014, 08:33:27 PM »
Howdy folks, good news seems to be in the wind!  My doctoral ambitions are looking pretty good.  Thanks for all the prayers and encouragement!  It isn't set in stone yet, but I've been nominated for the bigger of two fellowships from the University of Arkansas.  Now the nomination goes to the Graduate School, but it seems I am in a good position.  I'm relatively certain that this step is a formality.  I feel like Atlas when Hercules shouldered the world for a space!
God Bless

Today's thesis is on why Aqauman is cool and kicks butt. The presentation is approximately 12 hours long and I've locked the doors.

The scary things is, is that as passionate about Aquaman that Benton is, he could probably be able to (Very easily) make it into a killer presentation.

How did you know what I'm specializing in?!  Ha, I would love to teach a class on how awesome Aquaman is one of these days... :P

And here I thought the evil I had committed in hopes of you not joining the fellowship would work.  Blast it!

You can make it up to my by buying two kegs of vodka, two kegs of rum, and a gallon of mint daiquiris.  What?  Can't folks like mint daiquiris?

They taste even better by the galleon but that's expensive.

I had reported this guy to the moderators from another thread last night. Whether the mods needed my prompting or not, they delivered swift justice. It looks like he had posted the same garbage in five different threads.
