Next Friday, the 21st -- a.k.a. the Mayan End of the World -- we're hosting book club at our house. The club meets on the third Friday of every month, and in December every year, we always do a Christmas-themed party. I've already planned out all the Christmassy foods, drinks and decorations I'll have.

But I want to do something extra for the whole "end of the world" thing, something cute and funny. Like, maybe some fun "end of the world" foods, decorations, etc. Some way to acknowledge it. It's a pretty laid back crowd, and we've known each other for a long time, so I know they'd enjoy it.

But my brain isn't working this morning and I can't think of anything clever...do you guys have any ideas?

Nearly the end of the Semester... [Dec. 13th, 2012|10:30 am]
The Question Club


Have you ever had snarky, blunt, no-nonsense, highly organized, no-excuses instructors? 
How did you feel about their teaching style/them personally?

I've had a number of these professors and I can't say I've ever not liked them. (Although, if I had one that was all of these things and not organized I'd probably hate them.) When I was a kid I thought it was just because I was a good student and didn't typically get shit from my teachers; however, as I grew up and faced a few of their sarcastic comments, I found I still liked them. I appreciate their intelligence, diligence, and the fact that they hold their students responsible. 

Still, I felt bad for a few of the students in my political science class. We have a critical book review due at the end of the semester and a few people were asking for an extension because the book was hard for them to understand. The teacher said, "No. It's a college level course and imagine that... a college level book. Who would have guessed you might be expected to read at the grade level you're in?" While I agreed with him, it seemed a bit harsh. On the other hand, most of them are people are in their freshman year and should be aware that procrastinating on a 300 page book isn't a good idea.

This is not a homework questions just a thought on how much format varies... [Dec. 13th, 2012|11:48 am]
The Question Club


I am writing up my annotated bibliography and so far three different people from writing lab have looked over my annotations and all have a different idea of what is appropriate.

The first person I discussed my annotation is working on her masters in lit and told me get into depth with details.

The second person a professor in creative writing and theater, directed to keep the annotation short (150 words) and do not get into too much detail. They suggested I remove three sentences which I felt were key to aware the reader of the the wealth of information in the research.

The third person was my professor and she liked what I had so far.

The fourth person another professor said my annotation was too lengthy and I should chop it down again.

The obvious is to go with what my professor says since she is the one grading my paper.

But will you discuss how/what you think is appropriate to include in an annotation?

Or share examples if you like.

Is it a really bad idea to donate blood if you weigh about 5 lbs less than the minimum weight?

What are some things you do on weekday evenings to entertain yourself? (Especially those that involve getting out of the house/apartment.)
My boyfriend and I take an art class together once a week, I ride my horse a few times a week, in general we work out and stuff, but we're looking for something to do this evening.

grammarians! [Dec. 13th, 2012|12:25 pm]
The Question Club


You guys like grammar. Can anyone parse through this?

"She probably cares, if she does care, we still don't know, about a standard and suggests not meeting that standard is grounds for a bit of finger-pointing."

I think what he's saying is that if the girl cares about a certain level of standards then she should be able to judge others for not meeting those standards?

How do you feel about this type of speech/writing?

Your friend tells you that their SO is giving you a present for Christmas. You like her SO, but you weren't planning on getting him anything since you aren't very close. You ask her what he would like and she sends a list that he made up and sent to friends and family. You pick an item and buy it, but you don't have the chance to meet up and exchange gifts until after Christmas. Before the exchange, your friend mentions to you that someone else already got him the same gift and asks if you can return it and exchange it for something else. What do you say/do?

This situation aside, what do you think about people sending out Christmas lists with specific items on it, with links?
