Oh, sheesh. Barbie has a blog now. As do her friends Madison and Chelsea. This new Barbie thing is called "My Scene," and it involves Barbie hanging out with her "ethnic" friends in New York City--in cafes, trendy shops, taxicabs, etc. Thanks to Christine at Ms. Musings for this little nugget.

Under "Ratliff": "You enjoy being stroked verbally and physically." Boy, they do claim to know a lot about me! Ha.

Oooh, oooh! I did this Acrophonology thing--sort of like a horoscope for your name. Here is mine:

Clancy:

You are a quick study, and can be self-taught. Your curiosity can get the best of you, but you must learn to concentrate. You have a diplomatic flair to your nature. Equality and fairness are important to you. You have much enthusiasm with a driving attitude toward achievement in life. You can handle details well. You have a methodical mind. You need to learn concentration and not to scatter your mental energies. Your independence and freedom are important to you.

Ann:

You have much enthusiasm with a driving attitude toward achievement in life. You must learn to give 'wise' service and not be a martyr. You must learn to give 'wise' service and not be a martyr.

Ratliff:

You make impersonal decisions quickly, but not so with personal concerns. You like to think things over carefully, but tend to be indecisive. You have a need to be up front. Your privacy is important to you. You have a rich inner life. You must learn the lessons of self-worth; learn to love yourself before you can love others. You are relatively demonstrative in your affections. You enjoy being stroked verbally and physically. You are naturally friendly. You can be the life of the party. You need to learn the true meaning of friendship.

Hmmm, check out what's under Ann. The same sentence twice in a row? Was that for emphasis? Lol.

Two things down (presentation and observation); too many to go. Research and grading are going to consume my weekend.

Today I'm going to the post office to mail my plane tickets back to Orbitz. I need to change my flight reservation. I was going home the 15th, but I need another week at least. I need more time before the semester starts too. Haven't broken the news to my parents yet . . . :-/
