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. 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.
