UGA is planning on releasing the EA decisions on the Status page on Friday, November 17 in the late afternoon unless some serious problem arises, which I do not expect. If this changes, we will let you know, but this is the plan at this time. If there are issues, the release date and time would then be a little later, either over the weekend or the early part of the next week.
We will post a message here when it opens up. We are excited about this, and I am guessing you are as well, and hopefully it will allow for a little less nerve-wracking Thanksgiving break for some of you.

Dating with an age-gap
Nolonger NMX is once again opening up our call for speakers. I could link to the form here and send you there now without explanation, but there are a few things we should go over first. First and foremost, our community is looking for passion, creativity, and speakers who will inspire them.
There’s a new online dating awards! Sure, these awards have been done before (with “nominations” being somewhat of a joke and YouTube-spamming affiliates (account now “terminated”!) somehow presenting awards), but there’s a new group in town now.
Getting married, having babies. There is surprisingly a lot of debate on the Net about whether this video is “real” or “fake. The video originated from a homemade TV “pilot” shot in by Selected Hilarity Comedy Group , which consisted of four friends and me from the University of North Carolina. We were at the height of our popularity, touring cross-country literally as much as we wanted to. We had a lot of interest in production companies in NY and LA, and our agent thought it would be a good if we self-produced a sketch comedy show pilot to shop around the soundness of that idea is certainly debatable.
Our idea was a show that would follow us around the country on tour. Each week would be from a different town on the road, and the show would combine “reality” style segments on the street, clips from the live performances, and pre-taped sketches. Keep in mind that in this concept was pretty far ahead of its time. I’m not sure our pilot approached that concept, but that was the idea. Scott came up with the idea for the “frustrated video dater” sketch and stars in the sketch.
I’m not sure where he got the inspiration, but hopefully he will share that in the comments section. The grainy film effect was added using the state-of-the art Commodore Amiga Video Toaster.

Part 1 is here , part 2 is here. You can donate to Way Out Arts here. Patricia provided the pancakes on the veranda, and by 8. As in many tropical cities, the drive to higher ground brought cooler, cleaner air and bigger houses. The sun was already starting its daily onslaught, but the radio offices were an air-conditioned sanctuary. Jamie, Gibo and I spent an easy 45 minutes chatting about the charity and their work, and my impressions so far of the country.

The Language of Admissions My daughter, who is a sophomore International Affairs major at UGA, probably thinks she can hold her own in a hospital operating room. Because being a Grey’s Anatomy fangirl has taught her all the medical lingo she would ever need in this life. Words like V-Fib, central line, metastasis, Pre and Post-Op, and phrases such as “I need a ten-blade and cc’s of epi stat” can just roll off her tongue.

To address the elephant in the room first, I’m not going to write a review, but I will say why I was upset, because it sets up Everest was pretty great, but I did it sucking bottled oxygen, and for the seven years leading up to Everest since in Pakistan I planned to do it without oxygen, and that was definitely a buzz kill. I’ve got to be one of maybe people in the world that climbs Mt. Everest and is disappointed how easy it is. On top of that, I kind of failed at my 24 hour race in September and did a lot of soul searching in September and October about whether I would even continue running.
Unfortunately I partly define myself by what I do, and that includes running, and I didn’t really have a great race in or and that was really hard mentally. Plus, as much as I like my job, it is pretty awesome, I am, and have been, struggling to live in the middle of nowhere. Running actually went quite well. I ran four races, a half marathon, a k, a 15k and a 24 hour race. I slowed quite a bit the last 30k, but overall, it went quite well.
My training was not even that great leading up to the race, good, but not great. My 15k I went into with a little knot in my hip, and that made it worse of course, but I recovered, thanks in part to a massage therapist.

Posted on 9 January, by Nick Bullock Tides, my second book is due to be published by Vertebrate Publishing and on the shelves in May. The cover is an ink by Tessa Lyons which I think is wonderful. Tessa did such a great job, as everyone at Vertebrate Publishing have done and who are, of course, still doing. My initial draft was words, the final draft is approximately 95 words which means there are a load of prose not included. So on a run-up to Tides being published, I thought I publish some out-takes here as a bit of a teaser.
This number 1 is a mish-mash of an essay I wrote that was first published in the CC journal and some of it was also published in Echoes.

Resurrection FAIL 17 September , Pakistan Two correspondents nominated the gullible acolyte who volunteered to be killed and resurrected by a holy man–and not a holy man who was experienced with the procedure, but a beginner who thought he’d give it a whirl!

After being cautioned twice to not climb over the fence enclosing the tiger enclosure, Maqsood climbed over the fence a third time and then swam across the moat over to Tiger Island.
