I got 93%. HOWEVER.....not without a lot of extra help. He grades us on a curve based on the last 10 classes he has taught. I got 39 out of 60 right. That's a big fat D. We did a game in class on Thursday, similar to Jeopary but in groups of 4. The bonus points from the game were worth 1-6 additional points. If you lost but were still in class to participate, you still got 1 point. My team managed to get 2 extra points. Plus we had a huge pain-in-the-ass extra credit project that was due today. It was worth up to 10 points, depending on how well you did. I got 9 out of 10. He adds 17% to your grade for the curve plus all of the accumulated extra credit points so 65% on the test + 17% for the curve + 11% of extra credit gives me an A. I'm honestly not happy with that. I feel like I practically failed a test and he gave me an A. There were tons of people that have ridiculous scores of 120%. They have an A, I have an A. I got a D on the test and they actually got an A on the test before the additional points are factored in but we still have the same grade. They should be mad, not me. For some reason I'm really upset about it. I think it's because I studied my ass off. I actually studied harder for this test than any other test I've ever taken and I got a D. It was the hardest thing I've ever done. There were people in the lounge after that said they felt like going in their car and crying because it was so hard. I think THAT is why he gives us the 17% extra plus had us do extra credit stuff. Everyone in the class, including all of the slackers that skip other classes and never study, come to this class and study all the damn time because it's so hard. I think the "curve" is really an A for effort. We're going to school to be Chefs, not economists. None of the examples we're given have anything to do with kitchen management or cooking so it makes no sense in my future real world. We have to take a class called cost control in a few weeks. That's all about how to effectively run a restaurant/bakery on a financial level. This class is a bunch of BS that is going to give us all an ulcer.

My hot, hot, hot Chef let us out at 8:30 tonight I love him! Last night he made us dinner and said it was a made to order kitchen so he'd make each of us anything we wanted with the ingredients he had. There's only 14 of us in this particular class, and most of his ingredients was sandwich stuff....on baguettes so it wasn't too hard for him to make us all stuff. We did all of our homework assignments in class and took a test while he cooked for us /ARW's school week......

Vegas was fun (and hot). I posted about the concert in my journal. Kerry was not feeling too good for most of the concert , but I had fun . I think she did by the end too. I asked her if she enjoyed it and she said she did.

shari, did you get to snark on Styxx? . I guess they're not as snarkworthy now that Dennis DeYoung isn't their singer anymore.

welcome back! How did the world of scamming do while you were gone? I haven't been to your site in a few days.

I just looked for Police tickets the other day and found 2 for $90 but no one wants to spend that much to join me I also can't find anyone that wants to pay $50 to see Def Leppard.

No messages from the scammers in my inbox. I guess they didn't miss me .

Even if you go by yourself, you should go see The Police. $90 is actually a great price . We paid over $100 and we were 2nd to the last row up top.

For the food network addicts , in Vegas we ate at Emeril's New Orleans Fish House and Mario Batali's Enoteca San Marco for lunch, and Michael Mina's Nobhill for dinner. Oh, and Quark's Bar at the Star Trek ride, but he isn't on the food network .

I don't want to go alone Wanna come to the Twin Cities on July 3rd?

and very cool about the restaurants. I've been to Emeril's but not to eat, just to look. I didn't know Mario had a restaurant in Vegas. I'm not too into him. How was the food at all of the places? Any desserts?

I definitely would if I didn't have to work July 4th . . . at 7 a.m. . Stupid 4th of July events .

The food was very good. We didn't have desserts at Mario or Emeril's restaurants, but at Nobhill we had a raspberry tart with pistachio mousse .

And at the Star Trek place, Kerry had banana wontons and I had a cheesecake .

My employer went from "normal" holiday hours of 10-6 on the 4th of July to 9-7............what the hell?!?!?!!?? Everyone is grumpy at work because of it. I don't know why they extended the hours. I mean there are parades galore in the morning and afternoon/evening brings picnics and getting places early for the fireworks. The day could have been covered by one person if it were 10-6 and now it will take 2 people to cover the day ~ prolly 5 hours each............../ work rant
Can't wait for that schedule to be posted. At least it is time and a half. /now I am really ending the rant.
Rant continued, it is probably because Kohl's will be open those hours if not later ............I hate having one of those in the mall / really now I am done with the rant.
