Cliche Nation

There are only so many words in the English language, but surely we can come up with more original phrases than they do on NBC's The Apprentice - Donald Trump edition.

I was just catching up on season 4 when I noticed two ridiculous cliches repeating themselves. Surely, at the end of the day the contestants can step up to the plate and think of some alternative colloquialisms to use.

cli·ché = a trite or obvious remark

My College ID: Tulane

I graduated from Tulane Univeristy and loved my time in New Orleans, before it was flooded.

Yesterday I was cleaning out my drawers and I ran across this old memento - my college ID. It struck me how much personal information was placed on it in the mid 90s. I wonder now with identity theft a concearn of the common man if they still have photos, signatures, date of birth, social security numbers and a simple sticker that allowed me to post grocery charges to my parents back home.

If you are confused by the computer center sticker... Maybe you think AOL invented the internet or that you were cutting edge when you started IMing your grandparents back in 2002.

Asking what Gopher and Mosaic is? If you don't know - you don't know. It's what Al Gore, Marc Andreesen and I used to create the internet.

American Express Rewards

Ok, so anyone who knows me knows that I am a miles horde. I have been saving up miles on my American Express Card, Marriott, Starwood, Multiple Airlines. I don't think I've ever even cahsed any in *.

I see now that AMEX must have lost their mind and they are giving away prizes like 5 day rafting trips for 1000 points.

The trick is you have to log on at 2pm EST and be the first to claim the prize. I've been trying to figure out how to get the goods, but have had no luck. Anyone already claim a prize and wanna let me know how you did it?

- Browser? Time you signed in? Were you sitting on a prize and just hit redeem? Did you have to refresh right at 2pm? Ia their 2pm my 2pm (Fast or slow)? There could be a bonus in it for any leads that work!

This guy seems legit: Maybe he will help.
