OK- part two of the student who alluded to the Police in his email (in which I asked him if he had read that book by Nabokov). He came in looking MORTIFIED today. That book by Nabokov is Lolita and it is NOT a nice book! I mean it's a great book, but it's not exactly what you want to allude to in an email to your teacher. :P

However, a friend of mine sent me this email:

"Good luck with grading papers - of course, in a non-King of Pain kind of way. I hope you don't have to find a new "career" like Roxanne did. I'm sure your students know that Every Little Thing you do is Magic, and that Every Breath you Take is providing the Synchronicity that they need to help them get their degrees. And if they don't, well, there's always Murder by Numbers..."

BA HA HA HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :lol::lol::lol::lol:

Bev - - ba ha ha ha h ah ahhh!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wait....you did not know the book was Lolita? :ph34r::o:lol::lol::lol: Um, thought you did....remember, shaking like that OLD MAN in the book by Nabokov.....yikes.....a few years ago I started reading Lolita, in fact it is sitting in my shelves, and it grossed me out.....too creepy, couldn't do it! ha ha ha , LOVE that email from your co-worker!! :)

OMG, a guy has come into work a couple of times....not my type.....gave me his phone number, clearly wants to go out....so I called him tonight. Fun conversation. who cares. Told him I was DAMAGED and we could be friends, maybe, at best. He said, did you NOT get my marriage proposal? okay, so he's funny. Not my type. BUT......he REMEMBERED that I am Celiac, says he's coming in on Saturday with a gluten-free gift for me......

gained about 1,000 points!! I said, do you KNOW the fastest wayto the heart of a Celiac????? it's FOOD, baby, FOOD!!!!! :lol::lol::lol: so I told him if he does this, I will relent and go out to coffee with him. :)

Carla. Where was the leg? what'd I miss? I didn't see Richard posting the leg anywhere. And I'd know what it was, have seen that movie a hundred times. :)

Oh NO! I KNEW it was Loloita but he didn't and he must have found out and been horrified. Ha ha ha ha!

You're right- food,baby,food!

:wub: Awww...give him a chance.

Quick drive-by...

I am SOOOOOOO BUSY! This will last until about the middle of January :(

I miss you all too. :)

So I'm away for a bit and you all have been busy ...

1) Seducing students (Beverly, what will we do with you!)

2) Getting Lyme Disease (Sorry to hear, but happy you've finally got an answer Carla)

3) Getting engaged before the first coffee date?? :blink: (Was is the architect with the pencil fetish as i predicted?)

Must go prepare for an appointment.

Try to stay out of trouble (or jail in Bev's case ;) )

Do you see the leg now? If not, refresh, he's still got it. I think I may get Adam one of those lamps for Christmas!! :lol: He has a little room he's finished in the attic, it would be hysterical, it actually is a front window, but through the dormer in the roof. LOL

Richard, I didn't "get" Lyme while you were gone .... just got diagnosed with it!! ;) It's great knowing that I'm really sick and not a hypochondriac ... of course, I've always known that ...

Beverly, I missed the first part of the story about the guy emailing you about the book ... is this a different guy than the brown-noser?

Okay, I have a funny "A Christmas Story" type story. I was dressed up in a rather conservative dress, so I wore fishnet stockings with it. My very young son (he was about 6), said, "Mom, I LIKE your tights!" It really reminded me of that scene in "A Christmas Story" where the boy looks at the lamp leg .... maybe you had to be there, but it seems men of ALL ages like fishnets.

no richard, unacceptable answer. You are required in this thread... you started it! :P:P

No jail for Bev.....he started that one. Yes- Carla, same brown noser student who went a LITTLE too far in his brown-nosing and got embarassed (as he should!). I see him for conference today- he will be SCARED (I am so frightening in person :P:lol: ). Actually, I can count the number of times I've been truly angry with someone (annoyed, aggravated, yes, but not angry) and it's NOT pretty. I'm a Scorpio :ph34r: I love my peeps fiercely. :wub::wub:

RICHARD!!!!!!!!!!

Dr. Bev is absolutely right. it is an UNACCEPTABLE answer and we will not have this. No, no, no, no and again no. You are REQUIRED to check in at least once a day!!!!!!!!!!! :angry::P:angry::P:angry::P

all right, the dingos are pacing, I just got home from work (um, I have some power there now as the other "shopgirl" (reference to the bored girl in Steve Martin's novel) has quit! because she is TOO miserable there! So, they are being EXTRA nice to me now and I repeat, I have power. B) Kinda fun. But, it means the dingos are alone for long periods of time.....not so good :huh: . so anywho they are beyond staring and onto pacing, I have to take them out in the cold and dark, in teh community of STepford a-walking we will go.

Whereas, I have nothing to say after the whereas. :huh::lol:

and it's my big TV night, The Office, Gray's, and then my new favorite, Men in Trees. Big night here.

what an exciting life I lead. :lol:

oh, the guy who is not my type who asked me out came in today. you may remember, last night I finally got around to calling him on the phone to tell him that I couldn't go out with him. So, he comes in today, to buy something, and then says, I almost called you back last night to tell you good night. :huh::ph34r: Um, scary and stalkerish, and I told him so....... :huh:

Did you happen to mention the your collection of skull crushing artifacts? :blink:

I wouldn't eat any of the gluten-free stuff he brings...you might wake up in Thailand or something :blink::o

If he was buying anything sharp or pointy i would DEFINITELY PASS and get an unlisted number. What kind of creep is this? He sounds more "Divinyls" than "Police" if you get my drift :ph34r:

Glad you're wielding some Dingo-tude at work. :)

DINGO-TUDE!!!!! :lol::lol::lol::lol: That's my new favorite thing!

Um, waking up in Thailand.... :lol: yes, I'll watch for that. I gotta get rid of this guy. The skull-crusher won't do it.....the guy is HUGE. Maybe 6'5" and over 300 pounds? :huh: well I suppose a strategically placed whack to the head....... :lol:

anywho so glad you checked in Richard. You're off the hook, for today.

Carla...you DEFINITELY must buy that lamp for Adam and put it in the window. Too funny.

okay.....gotta figure out what to do with today.....too many heinous things on my list. ugh. :angry:

Sounds like a Hunka-HUNKA Burnin' Love to me! :o

Time to get some Ninja weapons...

maybe a set of Kamas or a SHINOBI-ZUE even a KUSARIGAMA would be helpful. The bigger they are the harder they fall, so aim low and stand back. Use your dingo-like quickness to your advantage :)

Maybe you could use this to your advantage. Maybe you could get him to sit on the annoying brother. Then buy him a bunny "I will love him and pet him, and call him George" and send him on his way. :)

She blinded me with SCi-i-i-ence! B)

We own the movie ... so, Richard, I'm sure you know all your soap flavors, which one did you like best?

I don't think I have a "favorite flavor" I do however, NEVER want to see another bar of Fels Naptha for as long as I live! :wacko:
