"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


from night 'til early in the morn

Well, what a distinction. I really think there should be something about students' total lack of creativity in making excuses for the work they didn't get done, the paper they didn't hand in, and the exam they slept through. A note to my future students: No one has six grandmothers die in one semester. Come up with something better. You're the top 10%.

While I generally agree that six grandmothers cannot die in one semester--I would remind my dear professor of the possibility of three family members dying over the course of three months. But, I'm not bitter of anything--Life is good.

My UT earned this distinction several years ago - right around when they won the national championship...

You'll be off the list next year - that's how it goes.
