DAY 13:

Here's the drill-- all of you, even the furriners reading this post, know how to say the word Louise and can recognize it as being a woman's name.

A full 15% of my class came to a full-stop on it, as we read a passage aloud. I wish I had video of it for you, but I was too stunned to begin taping.

Jumpin' Jesus. Either I'm getting too old, or I'm surrounded by idiots.

Just what grade are you in exactly?

was asked by her nephew at one point what grade she was in.  She had to calculate it out real quick-like.  "I'm in the 21st grade," she told him.

He gets all wide-eyed, says "Geeez, I haven't even started the second one yet. You're crazy."

I like the idea of tracking progress through to doctorate that way.  Makes it much less nebulous.

I listen to college radio from Brown University in Providence.  One of the things  that  I've noticed with the  new batch of DJs this year is that they are the  dumbest bunch of  stumps I've ever heard.
