And the panic sets in

So, I thought my exam was very easy - considering that I never actually read the entire book - but I did work my way through the 900 question database - twice, and was scoring at least 80% most of the time.
My friend and I finished at about the same time - she thought it was very easy too.  Another friend in Canada took the exam as well and he thought it was easy.  Then today, I heard from a couple of people from my review class that they thought the exam was very very difficult, and they took the entire 4 hours to complete it.  It took me a little over 2 1/2 hours - and that was going through it twice! So, either I did really really well, or I just completely tanked it and will have to wait until December to take it again.

It's going to be a LOOOOOOOOOOONG 8 weeks to get the results.

In other news, I am fairly certain that my entire family is insane.  My oldest cousin cut her nose off with a chain saw about a month ago.  Yes, go back and read that again. Yep. CUT. IT. OFF. with a CHAINSAW.  Because she lives in the woods and decided that she needed to start stocking up on wood for her new wood stove. For the upcoming winter.  You know, the one that starts in about 6 months.  Yeah.  So now she cannot work at her job - working with the mentally handicapped - because she will scare them.  My mother JUST realized that my cousins did not send her christmas cards.  Last year.  So she called my aunt to yell at her about it.  My aunt called me to ask me "what the hell?".  So I called my mother - who was still worked up about the whole christmas card thing.  And I asked her if she knew it was June.  Then I asked her why it mattered because she never sent out christmas cards last year either.  Not even to me.  Oh, and she forgot my husband's birthday.  It was 3 months ago.  My father, who is in a nursing home, is now on the "resident approval committee" for hiring new staff.  My father hates people.  And he has dementia.  So, obviously that's a good choice.
My crazy-ass neighbor was at it again last night with the exploding beer cans.  This time she was grilling chicken and for some reason decided that putting her spare beers on the grill would be ok.  Her reaction? Why does that keep happening?
I swear that I am just going to move to Montana.  There can't be as many crazy people there.

**NOTE** - just for clarification - I am just as bat crap crazy as the rest of them, but at least I realize it.

Thanks for the Zappa earworm...

BUT I hate to burst your bubble - there are CRAZY people everywhere...

Good luck with THE WAIT!

You left off HOW she managed to cut off her nose. Inquiring minds want to know. Because those things have safety features on them. At least at the normal people stores they do. Just saying.

And why does it take 8 weeks to grade a test nowadays? Seriously.

At least you haven't cut your nose off, and you leave the beer can shwere they should be. ;)

Eric and Flynn said...

Yeah, we were wondering about the nose too.

Thumper said...

We must be related somewhere along the line... Most of the time I really wish my family didn't know about my blog so I could write freely...

Tho, no one has cut their nose off that I know of. But I'm always the last to know, so...who knows?

ABBY said...

And what did your Mom say when you told her it was June?

They must be grading those tests as s-l-o-w as possible...

That's utterly ridiculous!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Well, we see that those who leave comments here are just as bats as you and your family, so we should fit right in and feel at home.:) (Kidding)

Don't understand why it takes so long to grade the tests. Are they grading them or growing cultures on them?

I just so love coming to your blog - you make me laugh out loud!!
Could you put a note in about how she managed to cut her nose off - did she mistake it for a branch?

Well! I'm glad that I'm not the only one with an insane family! This could easily be my family you're talking about--wait a minute, are we related? ;)

You'll need to be careful in Montana ... that's where men are men and beef is beef. :)

About the exam, when I took my advanced GRE way-back-when, I finished it in an hour and a half, going through it twice. A friend that was taking it at the same time finished it three times in the same amount time. I scored a 60percentile (which is a fairly decent score), the friend 95 percentile. What does it mean? Not so sure.
