We received some advice from a famous Silicon Valley consultant the other day. If you want to promote sales, he said, put a picture of a beautiful, smiling girl on your front page. Eye contact is especially important. So we looked at our recent lessons and found they included tasteful photos of coffee, a nondescript office hallway, and a nice glass of water. And then we saw today's lesson and brightened. "What if she's young and beautiful," we asked, "but visibly sleep deprived and possibly manic depressive?"

Speaking of manic depressives, we would be remiss not to mention that we have one hell of a promotion right now. Sign up for a three month University Program and get a fourth month absolutely free. This offer is only good for the next eight days, so check it out soon, especially since it may not be long until only our manic depressive tutor has any space left. Cindy is more monotone on the phone, but she does assign more interesting vocabulary sometimes.

Hi everyone,

We accidentally dropped the last day or two of comments when clearing out some spam. Will be taking steps to avoid this moving forward -- sorry for the inconvenience, but thanks for all the good wishes. Hope you guys enjoy this lesson.

Can you please post a picture of Echo? She sounds so sweet.

Actually I spend so much time listening to you guys (Brendon, David, Grace), I'd like to see pictures of all of you.
