¿Habla inglés, por favor?

Roby (robbyjo) and the Poetical One needed a room at the Casa Inn fro IJCAI-2003. As our department doesn't issue cash advances on hotel accomodations fro conference travel, and as I'm the one with the (slughtly) higher credit limit, they asked me to advance them the flokarinos. I replied to the reservation clerk and she said that I could make an electronic reservation. The thing is, Casa Inn's reservación page is kindasorta borken (and their flexible-rate form was a lille hard to follow nazwaz). So... it's either e-maul my credit card number in cleartext to Mexico, or call. I pixed up the phone.

"Uhh... Buenos dias... um, ¿Habla inglés, por favor?" I wibbled in halting, borken Spanglish, liek the proverbial Stewpit Merkian TouristTM. "Síiiii...", larfed the front desk receptionist. Now I know how it feels to be speaking an actual second language (I can't read or write Chinese, but I can speak Mandarin well enough to make a hotel reservation). :-) In the end I agreed to call Ariadna (the reservation assistant) bax on Mooday.


istari_ala dared me to fill this form oot honestly fro K-State and psot the result here.
I wouldn't know how accurate it rilly is, but I did fill out the amsers to the best of my knowledge (some, such as "most popular class", were a lille hard to judge).

My College Is:
Kansas State University
Students at Kansas State University goof off a lot.
The average student has sex 10 times a month.
60% of freshmen are slaves.
Booze is the drug of choice.
The average GPA is 2.25
Enroll


For comparison, I filled one oot fro my psotgraduate alma mater, UIUC, and fro my undergraduate alma mater, Hopkins.

My College Is:
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Students at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are very studious.
Students at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign masturbate a lot.
There are lots of frats and sororities.
Weed is the drug of choice.
The average GPA is 4
Enroll


My College Is:
The Johns Hopkins University
Students at The Johns Hopkins University are very studious.
Students at The Johns Hopkins University masturbate a lot.
There are lots of frats and sororities.
Weed is the drug of choice.

Again, I can't spink to the veracity of the resluts (though I'm knot afraid of nay libel suits from psotting this ;-)). The amazzling thing is that the average GPAs match my GPAs at the above universities exacterly. Uncanny!
