Well, when you say it like that...
Dr. Elizabeth Corday just called me. At least, I'm pretty sure it was her, even though she called herself Susan SomethingOrOther and said she was from -- you guessed it -- a recruiting firm in California. Dr. Corday left an adorable little message on my voicemail, which included, in part (in the most British of Briton voices):
I read that yooo took the Caahliforniah Bahhr Exam, and I cahhhn't imahhhhgine why yoood suuhbject yourself to suuuch a thing if yooo were not coming baahk to Caahliforniah.
Hey, Corday, if I don't take this shit from Brian, I'm surely not going to take it from you and your funny accent.
Just keep rubbing it in, people. The first person who brings the salt can keep my fancy certificate.
On a not entirely different note, via Quinn, I only have to drink 240 more of these Diet Dr. Pepper's I've got here to kill myself. Mmmm...death by caffeine.
