    Because the papers are so bad or because you do not want to be grading at all?

    A specific kind of bad paper--the papers of students who were probably at the top of their high school classes just a few months ago, but still have no idea how to quote something and then analyze it in detail rather than saying something vague and general about it and moving on to the next general talking point. Completely predictable problem, and yet the sheer repetition eats away at the soul.

    I'm guessing you know what I'm talking about.

    Nah, that really doesn't happen, at least at the places where I've taught. (Knock on wood.)

    I've also been pretty lucky insofar as I'm friendly with students and yet they rarely give me undue grief (have never dealt with weepy students in my office, etc.).

    Don't worry, even Cambridge graduate students write awful essays.

    What to do you wan for lunch?

    I don't care, choose something and I'll wait here with the dog, comes back with a salmon sandwich and a grapefruit vitamin water thing.

    Note to self, don't let a 13 year old girl choose your lunch.

    One of my friends recently found out he's going to be a father, which he announced on Facebook. Of course lots of people, including me, made posts that said "Congratulations" and suchlike. But then a person came in and said "Some of you are not parents and don't know the first thing about parenting. You shouldn't be commenting here."

    She just texted and said, "My roommate and I are going out for a drink later, want to join?" Yeah right woman. Roommate there means my chances of getting you back to my apartment are further diminished. No thankz!

    Doesn't matter if the second girl in the threesome is ugly, you won't be able to see her face anyway. Your ballz will be in the way

    Remember odds of scoring with her are 0% if you're not with her.

    You should trust Piob, Conne; his good advice is based upon teh maths.

    That said, I'd be wary of any type of date with a girl who probably can't breathe through her nose.

    Jesus, this woman at the other table must have poured her whole perfume bottle on herself in the restroom.

    It's triggering a serious allergy attack for me :fu:
