I had my professor for my History of Film class approach me after last week's class and ask me to stay and help grade midterms (grading them this week, not last week).
Uhhh...is this weird? I've never had any professors ask that, and I've been in college 2 1/2 years. Is that kinda creepy or am I just being kinda paranoid and this is normal? He didn't ask anyone else, either, and I've never talked to him one-on-one.
I said yes just to be helpful and because I seriously don't have anything better to do that day, but it's kind of been on my mind all week because I've never had professors actually ask me to help grade something (I had a professor who turned into a close friend, and the semester after I had her, I offered to help her grade papers for another class of hers because she said she was struggling but she declined).
ETA: Nope, not a TA, and he's not paying me as far as I know. It is grading midterms for the class I'm in.

Whats the last thing you purchased online?
TQC! I'm about to start as an assistant teacher at a Montessori school for their preschool class. What should I expect? I appreciate pointers and anecdotes from parents and non-parents alike!
what do you think of pharmacists who refuse to give women Plan B/They don't stock it because of "religious grounds" and the fact they think its an abortion pill (lol)?
what do you like to order when you are at taco bell?
So I'm going to order a tailored suit and coat from an online store for a cosplay in November. I've been advised by friends and associates to go to a tailor to get my measurements.
But. I have measured myself before. I know my measurements. Should I go to a proper tailor, or should I just stick with myself?
Does anyone else here like to cosplay? What characters have you done before?

When you hear "On your left!" do you instinctively move to the left or to the right?
TQC, one of my friends keeps sharing feeeeeeelings over facebook. Gooey ones. Things that could be sent in a private message and not all up there squicking up my screen. What can I do?
Do you do this, or do you bury your feelings in a deep dark hole somewhere, as is appropriate?
What are your favorite animals, TQC!?
ETA: Just so you know, there's a big picture of tarantula in here now.
inspired by the egg post:
what foods have you successfully gotten yourself to like, or at least tolerate?
i didn't put much effort into liking mushrooms, but at some point i abruptly started liking them. i started liking peanut butter when i realized it was great with chocolate. i started liking cheese after i tried smoked gouda. and i've been working on liking pickles for a few years now and i have a feeling i'm closer than ever to actually enjoying them.
As a heterosexual man, the thought of doing sexual acts with a guy is repulsive (no offense to gays or anything, i have no problem with gay people at all).
Im wondering weather gay guys (like full gay - not bisexual obviously) have that same repulsion towards being with a woman? Or is the idea of being with a woman fine but you just prefer other men?
Dont mean to cause any offense with my choice of words, im genuinely curious.
When should a doctor be contacted when someone has a fever? (For the sake of argument, let's say said feverish person is feeling generally punk-ish and headachey, but nothing specific.)

TQC, can you suggest songs/bands/albums for a road trip mix I'm making?

Pretty much nothing is off limits.

I'm moving from my apartment into a house in May (so exciting!) and I can't wait to start a vegetable garden! We're renting and I don't plan to be there longer than two years, so I'm looking into a container garden. Do you have any tips, especially for gardening cheaply?
Example: the Internet tells me that leaf lettuces and other shallow-rooting things (like herbs) can be grown in vinyl guttering, which is available at Home Depot for ~$5 per 10 feet.
Also, is there a stupid-proof site to tell me when to plant different stuff depending upon my location? I have never gardened before in my life and I'm a little overwhelmed, ha.
DK/DC/what is a garden: what is something that you will reliably procrastinate on?
Mopping the floors. :( It's just so much of a hassle!

man what do you do when someone who you HAVE to see on a daily basis is a constant interrupter?
a good friend has become pretty self-absorbed lately, and she has always been a chronic interrupter, and yes we've had multiple talks about it, but I don't know what to do about it in the moment that isn't cruel or overly showy but that lets her know she's doing it again. she continuously cuts you off in order to relate any anecdote you're sharing back to her own life and then she just goes off on that tangent and never looks back.
Since January 2012, have you lost or gain weight?
Got an answer on the mortgages, thanks!
DK/DC: What is your favorite color? Be as specific as possible!
Has anyone here played the recently-released Gensou Suikoden Tsumugareshi Hyakunen no Toki?
