I am busy doing some last-minute vacation things and so, without even thinking about it or realizing HOW HORRIBLY INEXCUSABLE my life was at that moment, I...
...opened my Mac calculator widget so that I could multiply 8x8
...SO THAT I could confirm that 8x8 actually is 64
...because I really wasn't sure
...but that was what Clay Aiken(???) was waffling about
- on Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader?
So to recap: I was at my desk, with the television on in the background. Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? was on (why???), and the special guest contestant was, in fact, Clay Aiken. I was tuning in and out, and when he got to the question where he had to know what 8 x 8 was, he swore it was 64 but couldn't QUITE be sure. And in the back of my head I was thinking, "What is 8 times 8? It is 64, yeah? Hmmm..." and then yes, I WHIPPED OUT A CALCULATOR TO DO 3RD GRADE MATH IN SOLIDARITY WITH CLAY AIKEN.
If that isn't proof positive that I NEED a vacation, I'm not sure what is.
