"Here's my CV. Why don't you just file it under 'Awesome'."

Does everyone in the States know that CV = resume?

This conversation is from the beginning of the night, shortly after we got into bed:

ADAM: (starts awake suddenly, gasping)
KAREN: You okay?
ADAM: Yeah. It was worms. It's okay, it was just worms.
KAREN: Oh! I thought you were awake, so I went to pet your head.
ADAM: Oh.
KAREN: But you thought it was worms.
ADAM: They were all over me.
KAREN: Oh, god. I'm sorry.
ADAM: It's okay. I was chopping them.
KAREN: Tripping them?
ADAM: With a shovel. Chop.
KAREN: Chopping them.
ADAM: In half.
KAREN: Did that work, or did they just grow back?
ADAM: I'm not talking, I'm sleeping.

  1. CV means something slightly more academic in the States, I believe. I've always heard CV used in relation to academic/scientific/journalistic accomplishments (degrees and publications, but mostly publications).

  2. CV = curriculum vitae....your life accomplishments. So can be both, however, N. America it does tend to be more academic than job related.

  5. Dear Ms. Karen Slavick-Lennard,
    I discovered your blog by way of my Psych teacher. I was so amused that I listen to your archives until I reached early 2011. I find it far more hilarious than my friends do, mostly because my laughter is unstoppable and takes on a mildly maniacal tone if I am exposed to Adam's quirk for extended periods of time. Please never stop posting.
    By the way I think you a super human to have survived for so long. I would have died laughing in the first six months if I were you.

  7. I've 11 years of higher education under my belt and I've never heard of a CV. I've heard of a Vita, and I've heard of a CV joint in a motor vehicle. Neither of my degrees is in auto mechanics. I have no idea what this means for my future.

  9. Buy used cars from reliable dealer, this is because used cars can be a crap and it might turn in to a wastage of money therefore it is very important to choose the used car seller wisely.Toyota Prado For Sale | Used Mitsubishi Canter
