DP Woes

Well, she was cute. And perhaps interested. . .

Hey, give me a break: I need something to brighten my day.

The revised Dedicant Program was tabled last night by the Mother Grove. As emails trickle in, I wonder what happened. It sounds like a total melt-down of independent thought. I'm not sure that the MG even knows what happened.

Of course, I'm probably only getting one side of the story.

Yeah, I'm frustrated. Not with the fact that they want the best possible program. Not even with the fact that it was delayed.

What frustrates me is that there was little indication that this program wasn't *approved* yet. I know people started working on it. People loved it. I haven't heard a single complaint about it.

I wish I could have observed that meeting. I'm royally confused as to what happened.

As more email comes in, I see others think I was being negative when I emailed out about this. It couldn't be farther from the truth. I very much appreciate the commitment to excellence that the MG has, and I know they're trying to make the DP the best they can. But it's still extremely frustrating.

Thus my drama for the day. *sighs* Time to sit back and wait for the next email.

Yummy

So I asked Tina a question last night, and I don't think I really got a good answer.

The word "yummy", as it refers to someone a person is attracted to: what the hell does that mean?

So I asked Tina: "Have you ever had a 'yummy' crush?"

She said no, but that she has seen guys she thought were 'yummy'.

So I asked her to define 'yummy', since it appears she knows what it is.

She couldn't. I asked her if I was 'yummy'. She just laughed and refused to answer that one.

So I tried to get her to define it again, mentioning that it obviously implies that the person must taste good.

She couldn't stop laughing at me long enough to describe it.

So: What is 'yummy'?
