Hey Team Ann Arbor,
« on: July 02, 2004, 10:39:00 AM »
Hope you're not going to be too disappointed with a "2" in the first night of NPS. I'm sure you have high hopes for the coveted "1", but I just don't see it happening.  :lol:

did they draw already or something?  what the heck is going on?  and am I assuming correctly from Darby's cocky overconfident boasting that we somehow drew Cantab the first bout?

Your assumptions are accurate. Headline: Darby Goes Down, Eats own (inferior) words

You both have it at least partially correct

Ah. looking forward to it! Deanna


Well, while it may be true that Darby goes down, AND that women look forward to it, nothing of that sort will be happening, at least during the match.

We're working pretty hard too, and I know the whole AA strategy book, such as it is. As further endorsement of our stunning abilities, we (mere hours ago!) competed in the Urbana Grudge Match and finished AHEAD of Urbana AND an NYC All-Star team! (Yeah, Austin whupped us all, but Austin's not in our NPS bout, so never mind about that.)

Just to ensure a Cantab victory over Ann Arbor, we have decided to skip getting a hotel room, live in our rental car, and use the excess funds to hire twelve jolly-rancher-flavored college girls wearing white tank tops and mini-skirts to sit in the front row, spill frozen beverages on themselves, and repeatedly cross and uncross their legs while Matt "Ernie" Ernst is reading. He won't get past "We were idiots, the group of us..."

And the judges will, of course, agree.

I was just in Lily White Livonia and passed "Darby Auto Repairs." And you said you were in Bah-ston!

Darby on a good day: "Vroom Vroom goes my motor."
Darby on a bad day: "Vroom Vroom goes my motor."

(That's right, can't tell the difference.)

Yes, well, will you have on your team a woman who not only writes poetry, but ALSO just came up with a way to study a protein that like minded geeks have been trying to find for years, has created this assay, and now has ACTUALLY GOTTEN IT TO WORK?!  Oh, yes, my protein is alive and well and I can prove it.  Perhaps I'll just adapt my Nobel Prize acceptance speech as a poem.  

I'm a poetic protein prophet.  You really don't stand a chance...


Deanna

P.S.  I am really really excited I got this assay to work.   my poor slam team has been hearing me gripe about for weeks now.  I am nearly beside myself with elation.  I promise to be thinking of you all specifically when I acknowledge all of  "the little people who helped get me here" in Stockholm.

Deanna,
Great job on your Nobel Prize-worthy experiment!  Soon you'll have more than just that grainy snapshot to show us all!  And I was afraid that yours was the lab that caught on fire at U of M this week.  Thank goodness it wasn't!

Oh and Darby, we changed the book.

Deb

PS Delrica, you have to understand that this is all in fun.  Last year Eric Darby was on the AA Slam Team with Deanna and Matt, so don't worry about the trash talk.  It's just that.

Deb, after all those years, you threw away the notecard? And you were just starting to use the second side!

Steve- Feel free to mock the car noises. You shall eat your own inferior words when we unleash the Car Noise Group Piece upon you.

(and congrats, D! You'll have to explain it to me in St. Louis. Not that I'll understand it, but I too have the knowing nod down to a science...)

yes, well, in preparation for the first nights bout we have Matt hard at work at his new poem:

"What would Matt drive? (if he had a car and his wife hadn't left him)"


 :lol:


don't worry Darby, I'll bring the polaroids to help explain my new experimental glory.  I carry them with my everywhere...  (I'm not kidding).

Deb,
You may be ready for me, but not for the five voice "I Want to Be Uzbeckistani" piece we're working on. Besides, I've got it on good authority that Deanna's Great Uncle was a quadriplegic, so I'm not too worried about her new poem.

Darby,
Have you heard about our MIS group piece?!  It's flagwaving amazing!

Oh, and don't you make fun of Deanna's great uncle!  He's got the cure too--not only a quadripelgic, but also a childhood lukemia now in remission survivor.  He's got your number!
