>When I told my mom that I was going to apply to three MFA programs for Fall 2008, she said, "What does that stand for? Motherfucking something?" Then she giggled.

She kills me.

Update: Did I say I was planning to apply to three programs? Yes, I did. Then I looked at Columbia's website and discovered that tuition each year is over $30,000. Per year. So not interested in doing that. I'm applying to two programs.
