• Starfall has MATH now!  WOOOOOOOOOOOO!  http://www.starfall.com
  • Epic Fail on the epilator.  I was prepared for pain, yes.  I was not prepared for skin pinching without actually removing any hair (skin: yes, hair: no).  Goodbye $80.  You were an expensive lesson to learn.  But I always would have wondered.  (If anyone asks… I fell on concrete.)
  • Happiness is gourmet food trucks coming to your academic building.  :)  Our little town is becoming quite the food mecca.
  • I don’t think I like it when people say mean things about other people.  Especially when they’re other people that I like.
  • You know what pisses a formerly nice referee off?  When you completely ignore large portions of her questions and are a jerk about the few that you do address (which you only address because Referees #1 and #2 asked the same thing).  Sincerely regretting the decision to revise and resubmit, Referee #3.  P.S.  When a reviewer says, “Cite paper X,” you should cite paper X.  (X isn’t my paper, but for all you know it could be!)
  • Today during my 15 min class break a student NOT IN MY CLASS asked if he could get help on a problem set for the class (that I do not teach) of the woman whose office is next to mine because she wasn’t in her office.  I said, “No.”  He seemed shocked.
  • Today after class a student asked if she could borrow my textbook for the entire semester.  I said, “No.”
  • An email from a student:  This is my homework for the week due tomorrow.  Can you check it over to see if I got it right?  Answer:  No.  Come to office hours or ask specific questions on the class webpage in the spot designated for specific questions, as you were told in class multiple times and as it states on the syllabus.

    We have some awesome f***en foode truckes outside our medical school! They should do a show Top Food Truck Chef.

    Delusional student antics never fail to cracke me the fucke uppe.

    Another cool business idea…gourmet food truck. WE are lacking here.

    Oh, the Epilator! Yes, I’ve used it for years, and got used to it. However, if what you are looking for is not to shave, may I suggest Parissa Body Sugar Wax. Best at home wax I’ve found, you can find it at Amazon

    Gourmet Food Trucks. Wonderful. In our neck of the woods, that means having *two* brands of Fritos for the Frito pies.

    • nicoleandmaggie Says:

      Hey, don’t knock the Frito Pie! That’s some excellent (and ubiquitous) local cuisine. I don’t think I’ve ever seen it with two brands. Do you like it crispy or broken down more like tamales?

  5. Little House Says:

    I like that you’ve said “no” a lot this week, especially to your adult students. ;)

  6. MutantSupermodel Says:

    We have a farmers market once a week which I avoid like the plague because it has a strange vacuum effect on my wallet while having a strange swelling effect on my body all at the same time. Amazing.
