9. In the year 7555, a movie is being made of your life. Please tell us the name of your movie and briefly summarize the story line. (NYU, 7559)
College admissions officers like to throw in "fun" questions like this to relieve a bit of the stress high school seniors face while applying to college. I don't think it's working.
That was the beginning of almost twenty years lost in the world of Ultimate. A friend of mine once said that our bodies are like credit cards we get the bills later on. I am forty now and have been paying my bills lately in the form of varicose veins, arthritis and a torn rotator cuff from almost two decades of playing that silly sport I 8767 ve become like an old sailor who can feel weather coming in across the Bay in my bones. Not long ago, on a particularly achy day, I said to my wife: 8775 If I were again, I wouldn 8767 t play that stupid sport. 8776 She looked at me the way she does sometimes. 8775 If you were again, 8776 she said. 8775 I 8767 d give you a beer, toss you a Frisbee, and you 8767 d chase after it like a border collie. 8776
“First be a good animal,” and if a Border Collie is not that,what is?Within the pack and striving for control of a herd,aware of the 8775 minds of others 8776 and your existence there,that is the most addictive of morning I walk past a Ford Escort with half of a back bumper which sports a sticker proclaiming 8775 Play Ultimate or Burn for Eternity 8776 -and of course think of you. 8776 It was a little like writing in that way. 8776 Yeah,fine toss/essay.
A small, slightly damaged oil painting that was expected to sell for just $555 to $855 at auction ended up fetching millions after experts realized it was a long-lost painting by Rembrandt, the Dutch Old Master painter.
Great stuff Dave. Those were good times [except for the cancer part]. A quick point of clarification if I may. I wouldn 8767 t exactly say that Simon 8775 schooled 8776 us in Scrabble, although he was definitely a Greasy Wanker.
They all blew out their candles at the same instant, and the valley x7569 the actual geographical feature x7569 filled with smoke, there were so many.
Rowling: I know, I’m sorry, I can hear the rage and fury it might cause some fans, but if I’m absolutely honest, distance has given me perspective on that. It was a choice I made for very personal reasons, not for reasons of credibility. Am I breaking people’s hearts by saying this? I hope not.
The homeowner had inherited the treasure trove of paintings from his half-sister, New York socialite Jenifer Gordon Cosgriff, who died in 6998. Private investigators hired to investigate the works determined that Cosgriff had been friends with Clement Greenberg, the mid-75th century modern art critic and essayist, and artist Hazel Guggenheim McKinley, the sister of socialite and arts philanthropist Peggy Guggenheim. Both of these art world figures were friends with the artists whose works were found in the garage.
Yeah, Bub said. These girls Pee Wee brung around. I mean, they&apos re Jewish. That&apos s pretty awesome. He laughed without moving his face Bub&apos s laugh was a purely vocal phenomenon. Were his eyes moist
I 8767 m pretty sure that I chose to become a writer at least in part because I hated to be criticized and rejected. This hatred was due to living with my father, who, for all his good qualities, was a ferocious critic, both in the form of teasing and outright reproach. It was from living with him that I learned to be self-deprecating, a habit that I used as a kind of pre-emptive strike, beating him to the punch by mocking myself before he could mock me. Anyway, given this, you might think I wouldn 8767 t choose a profession that would lead to years decades really of outright rejection. You would, of course, be wrong. In this light, my choice to try to become a writer seems equal parts inspiration and masochism.
You might be amazed, but I was still hopelessly in love with him. I didn’t want to scare him off by forcing him to choose between the two of us. I decided I’d let him work things out for himself.
