Hi, seiryu!

I apologise for the confusion. I have not abducted Marco. He is safe and sound in the office, putting in overtime work to make sure he gets everything done.

One of the things I have tried to improve as Marco’s PA is his diet - too often did his old assistants allow him to eat high-calorie junk that was low in nutrients. I’ve even let him try my homemade kombucha! Filled with antioxidants and all sorts of other goodies for healthy intestinal flora.

Yours,

Clinton.
Hi Clinton,
Considering what was said, I do not think we can just take this as just a "weird technical glitch". If we don't regularly hear from Marco himself, we are going to have to notify Marco's friends and "government goons" too!

I would definitely be contradicting my line of work if I denied the importance of high quality foods. The diet industry is never going to give the correct answer, and it's also why they keep promoting fad starvation diets so the body goes into shock and wants to put more weight on after the diet. Lifestyle changes are important for sure, and kombucha can be quite tasty for sure.


Back to the blind Oda faith (until the next B.S. of course).

Clinton, Marco has told me of his favorite bird, but what about you? Also, since Marco seems to have misunderstood the question last time, would you let him answer it again?

Hi, seiryu!

After long and careful consideration, Marco decided it would be best if he doesn’t communicate through this AMA thread any more. Instead, he’s letting me handle things autonomously, including answering his questions. He says it’s for the best.

Hi, MagicalMelancholy!

I’m not really a bird person, but I do quite like lions (the animal mascot for the sports teams back at PennState, where I did my business degree).

Marco no longer answers questions in this AMA.

Yours,

Clinton

Hi, Judgement!

I would one day love to visit Italy. Something about the culture and the romanticism really appeals to me. Likewise, I would also love to visit Paris.

Yours,

Clinton

Got any tips for studying on the SAT Mr. Clinton. Surely an intellectual such as yourself can share some knowledge with a troglodyte such as I.

ummm... I’m calling foul play here. Clinton, you’re a sociopath, psychopath or both. I declare that you need to both be terminated of employment and locked up. Where. Is. Marco?!

Hi, MagicalMelancholy!

Let me share my SAT study routine with you! (Adapted so you can study at home!)

6:30am - Wake up, shower and get dressed.
7:05am - Make breakfast. I like to make French Toast with bananas. Bananas are a fantastic source of slow release energy, and they’ll keep you energised throughout the day!
7:40am - I get to my desk and start doing SAT prep exercises for the morning. I make sure to note questions that I don’t understand, or don’t know the answers to.
10:00am - Morning break. I like to go outside and stretch. I also refill my water jug (make sure to stay hydrated during study) and eat snacks. I like to eat granola, yoghurt and blueberries.
11:00am - Math. My brain is perfectly warmed up and I’m not too tired yet, so it’s the ideal time of day for math.
1:00pm - Lunch. I make sure to use this recipe to make egg fried rice. It’s quick and nutritious!
2:30pm - Literature. I make sure that I know my texts back to front, and that I’ve studied my cliff notes so I can discuss the themes of the books well.
4:00pm - Afternoon break. I usually eat peanuts during this time.
5:00pm - Practice essay. A fun way to end the day!
7:00pm - Studying is done. I eat my dinner (usually some kind of salad) and watch CNN for an hour, and then go to bed. I am usually asleep by 8:45pm at the latest.

Hope this helps! Maybe you can score an 1145 on your SAT just like I did!

Clinton

Hi, WeebyWitch!

Marco should be in touch with you, he’s allowed to do that. Oh, he’s not? Maybe he’s too busy then... Or maybe he doesn’t care enough. Who’s to say? He’s a pretty wishy washy guy.

Yours,

Clinton

((Wow Marco, I can't believe you forced yourself to even think about such a lengthy study routine. Props to you.

1145? (*pfts in being smug over getting 1300 on PSAT*)
I'm guessing you had a good GPA at least?

Clinton, I wouldn’t brag about that score especially with that ridiculous routine. I got a 1330 on the SAT (not the PSAT) in 9th grade and didn’t study at all.

Furthermore, is your message saying that Marco isn’t allowed to message people? For someone allegedly so intelligent, your communication skills are... lacking. At least I’ve got a drug and pain addled brain to blame for my issues (when it’s not phone typos and the drunken autocorrect gnome). What’s your excuse? ^_^.
