Random Glances of Exam Week

  • At her request, for Mother's Day I got TW a couple of little figurines that don't have facial features. TG was fascinated.
      • TG: "Why don't they have faces?"
      • DD: "So they can look like anybody."
      • TG: "But every people has faces!"
    • Dartmouth professor sues her students. I've made several attempts to write about this, but they've all ended quickly in pounding headaches. Are we sure this isn't a prank?
    • Tableau from today: Walking past a classroom, I saw a professor sitting at the front table.

    • Tableau from today: Walking past a classroom, I saw a professor sitting at the front table. A single student was in the front row center desk - the classroom otherwise empty - repeatedly pounding his head on his desk. Some things never change.
    • Overheard in the hallway: "New Kids on the Block are touring! My life is complete!" You can always tell exam week.
