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.
CPP, I just have a short attention span (#2 here). I can only concentrate so long on writing a federal grant application/grading/class prep/data analysis. I take blog breaks because brain becomes buggy. (See?)
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
