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.
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.
My fiancee is confused about mothers day. Our son will be 8 months old and he knows he's supposed to pick something out from our son but he says if Riley picks it out it will be elmo or something like that. What should I suggest he pick out?
Im not trying to sound conceited or anything.
Mom's? What did your infant get you for your first mothers day?
Will you reply to this entry with a contreveral/non-pc question or statement?
If a woman who gets drunk is not responsible for her actions if she tries to sleep with someone, because she is intoxicated and cannot make rational decisions or give consent, (and it in fact becomes the other party's responsibility to say no) why is a drunk driver responsible for their actions?
Which print should I get as my free one? ETA: I think this was unclear. The ones in my cart are ones I'm already buying, but it's buy 3 get one free so I get one more in addition and I don't know what to get.
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!
I have an eight pound, healthy two year old Pomeranian. She runs, she plays, she smiles, she gives slobbery kisses when I get home, all that jazz. I haven't changed her food, haven't changed laundry detergents, nada. Nothing has changed in her silly little existence.
Except for the fact that she gnaws at my sheets now. All the time. She doesn't CHEW on them to leave holes or try to damage them in any way, she just gnaws and licks them. I've washed them three times in the past week to get her to stop, but she still does it. She never chewed anything up when she was a puppy and her last heat ended weeks ago. Fuck's up with my dawg?
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.
