Ducks' himbo amuses me too.

Amusing but also worrying me a little is the hapless lad in one of my classes who just got one out of eight questions right in the true/false section of the test. Damn, that's statistically significantly worse than chance. He must have negative intelligence.

The Shoe

On the center divider. Every afternoon I take the same route home from work. On the concrete and brick center divider there lies one lonely shoe. Every day. Same place. I first noticed it in January - It has survived snow, wind, flooding, homeless people passing by - (Guess they wouldn't really have any need for one shoe) - Its contancy makes me smile.

Somewhat humorous story....

A few days ago I was sitting, watching the kids movie "Ratatouille" with my neice (she's four years old). We were playing with some of those cloth circles (I don't know what they are called) - about the size of a ring, different colors, etc... Anyway, after a few minutes she had her fingers covered with these things and she wanted to show her mom what she had done. Well, I continued watching the movie for a few minutes and then I picked the magazine up I was reading earlier. Somewhere in there I had placed that cloth ring around my big toe and had forgotten about it.

Well, I went to bed around 11pm.

Next day.
Got up, got dressed, went to work.
Got home, got cleaned up, dressed, went to bed.

Next day.
Got up, got dressed, went to work.
Got home, got cleaned up... was getting dressed when I noticed this orange colored cloth ring around my big toe.

I started laughing... Wife come into bedroom and asks what's so funny. I start telling her my story about the cloth ring...

I get to the part about placing it on my big toe and I show her my toe with the orange colored cloth ring on it...

She laughs so hard her dentures almost fall out...

This mildly amused me yesterday.

College pres did one of his campus wide keepin' in touch with everybody meetings yesterday. One of the things we discussed was the whole Swine Flu thing (are we doing enough, too much, is it blown out of proportion...)

As we left, a woman was at the door handing out a draft of a notice that will be sent to students regarding symptoms and the like. She was freaking LICKING HER THUMB to get the next sheet to hand out.

Um, gross. I was grossed out when my 2nd grade teacher did that. I haven't read the letter yet, I have sent it out to be sanitized, but I wonder if one of the items is: do not lick your fingers to pick up a paper then hand that paper to someone as that paper is now covered in your germ-ridden slimy phlegm.

I have to wonder: are your freaking fingers made of teflon or something? How hard is it to get the next sheet of paper? At the very least, invest in one of those rubber fingers.

You can even flex the stack of papers just so, and it will fan them all out by a millimeter each, so you can just pick each one up.

Exactly!

A woman I work with is 8 months pregnant. I turned to see her come out the door with her nose all wrinkled up, and she mumbled "I told her I already have one."

You know if they had sent out an email, they would have saved some paper and some germs.

This was a draft for us to peruse: I'm sure the final will be sent to student emails. Don't know why they printed them though, we could read it online just as easily.
