I'd rather go to dinner with someone else. None of those people really spark my fancy. *nose wrinkle*

my something else answer to the dr who questions: the 17th is my birthday!

I don't care about celebrities.

And I'm exhausted. It finally sunk in yesterday that I've been running practically 50-hour work weeks with only one day a week off for nearly two years.

not really a fan of any of those celebrities, but arnie's accent would be entertaining at least.

I miss Ten!!! *sobs*

^ THIS.

Same. I am debating whether I want to watch the new season or not. I probably should watch a couple episodes to at least give the new Doctor a chance to see how he fairs.

I don't mind Eleven or Amy, but they're not Ten and Donna. I'll give it a bit more time, I just hope Steven Moffat doesn't piss me off.

I loved Christopher Eccleston (did I spell that right?) and was bummed when he was replaced with David Tennant, but David quickly made me love him as the Doctor. I think you're right, people just need to give Matt Smith a chance.

student to teacher ratio - I'm more curious as to the logic than anything else. It's unconventional but not irrational, so I'm open.
11th-Apr-2010 02:19 pm (UTC)
It's probably something along the lines of teacher quality being more important than class size. If you have a bad teacher teaching 5 students and a great teacher teaching 40 students, the better teacher will likely produce better results regardless of the size of his/her class.

I am mildly interested in the Civil War, but don't care enough to learn anything other than what I learned in school.

I only care about baseball as the stopgap between hockey season and football season ;)
