Crazy Talk

Crazy Talk

The contestants on The Bachelor Pad have chosen these two crazies as their house ring leaders aka ‘power couple:’

Vienna, aka one of the most hated girls in Bachelor history and center of a public breakup/screaming match on national TV last year.  She’s immature, over-emotional, and downright nasty.  I’m not sure if I’ve ever heard her say anything nice.

And her partner in crime- current flavor of the month Crazy Kasey. Yep, he’s the guy who got a tattoo of a heart and shield on his wrist to show bachelorette Ali he would always ‘protect and guard’ her. All after knowing her for about 2.5 weeks. And he was serious- and confident Ali would love it and him.  Spoiler alert: Ali finds the tattoo (and Kasey!) creepy, off-putting, and weird… as does the rest of America.

Together, you’ve got an immature, emotional, overly-confident but not self-aware, nasty, and crazy couple.  These two entered The Bachelor Pad with a master plan to win the grand prize, so let’s add money/fame/attention obsessed to their list of already glowing personality traits.

But for some unknown reason, the fellow contestants on the Bachelor Pad have put their trust in them. Right. These two. These two characters are the ones the majority of the contestants turn to for the best winning strategy/voting help so they can decide who stays/leaves the show and ultimately wins the $250K prize.

Um, yeah.

Here it is! Our submission for the DonorsChoose Hacking Education contest:

Hacking Education: A Contest for Developers and Data Crunchers

Ten years ago, a teacher in the Bronx launched DonorsChoose.org. Since then, more than 165,000 teachers at 43,000 public schools have posted over 300,000 classroom project requests, inspiring $80,000,000 in giving from 400,000 donors who performed over a million search queries and made more than a million donations.

We’ve opened up that data, and invite you to make discoveries and build apps that improve education in America.

Exciting stuff, right? (I’m a nerd, just go with it)

Everything in the Kitchen Sink

Everything in the Kitchen Sink

Hi my name is Allie and I’m a coffee mug thief. Or, as one friend so kindly put it, a coffee mug slut. Yep, a coffee mug slut. You see, every morning at work I’d go to the communal kitchen, pick a mug from the cupboard/sink, (wash it out!) and pour myself some coffee. I’d then rinse & return the mug to the kitchen at the end of each day and be on my merry way. Repeat said cycle daily for the past 2 years… until earlier this week… when the office manager sent out an office wide email (100+ people!) asking the person who stole the ‘M&M mug’ to return it to its rightful owner.
