    Due to the dimensions of the work I did for the home test I can't fit it in the envelope. The admissions office receptionist says I can take pictures in send them in but I think this may put me at a disadvantage. Should I take her at her word or should I be concerned?

    is it a sculpture. I would be concerned. Go to the cooper union admissions homepage on facebook and ask them.

    Finland girl was supposed to fly in today, no? She should feel right at home in snowy NYC.

    hope it is flying, or able to land, or get to the city somehow from the airport.
    they are saying it will take few more days to send everyone where they meant to go.
    poor Mike (the mayor) he got cold and folks are tearing him apart for slow plow.

    In New York pulling an overnighter to get everything done :D Once again ran out of time but luckily the deadline is 5pm which means I still have 11h 37min. Portfolio looking good but hometest no so. Maybe I'll post some pictures of the ones I'm not too embarrassed about later hahaha

    Me too! Bagels, scones, and pizza slices suck in California compared to NYC.

    'tis right.
    do you care for the film such as eh... Ironman, kuma-chan?
    there in the Malibu mansion what his name Stark was gobbling up the pie out of cardboard box, flown in from Brooklyn.
  • kmazzakmazza - Posts: 864 Member
    Ye, I like the Ironman movies and remember that scene even though was never a comic book fanatic growing up. I thought Rob was a good pick for Tony Stark overall but unsure what others thought on the topic. Hmmm, well some of those houses you see in Malibu or in movies on top of the hills don't even exist and are often digitally enhanced or elsewhere. I believe the real house filmed in the movie is down in San Diego and the inside is a set at a different location. At the Point and along Pacific Coast Highway the coastline has eroded and every decade there are idiots whose cliffside homes are destroyed by natural disasters.

    What happened in LA during the last (and past) housing booms was this....government geologists were not approving unstable bedrock allocated for rich people to build their million dollar homes on. The contractors were getting frustrated for not getting their way so blackmailed politicians to remove government officials from the jobs or that they would destroy their political career. The politicians eventually capitulated and the contractors put their own hack geologists in place of the governmental ones to rubberstamp the plot as ok and safe to build on. When the project is finished, the contractors bear no responsibility so the burden falls on the government since they manage the land. So when the rains (and in some case fires) came and million dollar homes (without insurance many times) were sliding down the hill, the government was blamed for being incompetent. It wasn't the government geologist who were incompetent, it was the contractors and homeowners who with their selfishness pressured politicians with blackmail and standing in the way of so called progress. Personally, if I was to put a million dollar home on the cliffs, I'd just pay the 30k for a certified Geologist to make sure the bedrock is stable enough to sustain an earthquake. At the time though, many in LA were not use to the large amount of winter rains that came and have no clue about mother nature.

    Feel free to ship me out some NY cheesecake tho (since a pizza would get cold) in exchange for a west coast gift.

    I love it when you become OCD-sh. you been quiet lately, no fun.
    did you see Ironman 2? do you think those strawberries Tony (so, that's the name) bought at roadside stand are fake? when the girl threw them back at him, they were all plasick-y.
    I can not imagine when strawberries are not around in CA whenever filmed, maybe? or squashed and juice spattered real strawberries would ruin those fancy place's mahogany paneling they rent to film in it?
    I saw Pepper dinner college (Pepperdine) campus's photo on the cliff and maybe the book
    "the year of magical thinking" that had said family on the deck in their Malibu home, which sealed me impression. or, maybe life size Barbie house 's article. I don't know. It's CA, anything could happen.

    I will be traveling shortly but what I want to bring to my friend is cakeman Raven's Red velvet. trying to think how can it be carried on, stay chill for six plus hours, or would it be taken away after full body scan/pat me down?

    it's now like, 1 AM eastern, better get back to work or can't finish (again)
    ^^Moomin, you are lucky now you are all done and having fun or gone home to Moomin valley?
    wait till get in Cooper, you can not sleep much foundation year, so I hear.

    Just got back to Finland actually. Had a nice 2-week break in New York so shouldn't complain. Kinda bugging out about the results though. It's only a couple of weeks! Good luck to everyone else who applied!
  • greenwitchgreenwitch Registered User Posts: 8,245 Senior Member
    Bears, your cake could be in a box surrounded by frozen gel packs and that box could be in your carry on bag. If you think they would object to the frozen gel packs and if the cake is packed carefully enough, you could maybe put the whole thing in a bag that is checked.

    I'm traveling this weekend and want to bring home some gelato from a friend's shop in New Orleans (La Divina Gelateria - and it IS divine). If they have a few hours advance notice, they put some in the "blast freezer" and it freezes hard enough that it can ship somewhere and be OK for up to 24 hours ( I have to check that specific number - I'll let you know...).
