Advice of the Day for December 3rd, 2007!

Today's advice comes from Robbie, a friend's dad. This is what he sent when he found out she was going to curl:

To get up on the lingo you don't 'play curling' --you 'curl'. You need special shoes and a broom and a good liver. Curling and drinking go hand in hand. The leader is not the Captain he or she is the Skip. Other players are denoted by numbers. in order of importance in decending order it goes The Skip. Third, Second and Lead. They curl ends as opposed to periods, innings or quarters. The House is defined as the circular target area at each end of the ice. You will likely put your rock through the house often in your first year.

And remember the point of curling is to have fun even if the members of your rink, or your com'patriots, suck.

Good advice. (Although I prefer the term Vice to Third).

BONUS ADVICE: anyone who's not totally happy with their job (this isn't to say you're unhappy or looking for a new job, just that you're not 100% sure if it's for you) should apply for a job well above your level. You're unlikely to get it, but even if you get an interview, it can be good practice. Plus, getting your name out there can't hurt.

You know something is wrong when the New England Patriots face stiffer penalties for spying on innocent Americans that Dick Cheney and George Bush.
