So is Leslie on vacation? Or seeking a temporary new adventure in the wilderness of Costa Rica?
The RGM is the shared moniker for the mods. We're using it from now on. The cult of personality is finally over. We also got tired of emails that started with "Bitch!"
Of course certain readers thought I was a woman for a long time. I took it as the highest compliment.If Cal were a woman he could play from the front tees, and that score of his - which he always bitches about - would finally drop a stroke or two.Whoops, cult of personality re-engaged. Sorry.
Well I"m a big fan of the individual mods for their individual flair... but I totes understand the aversion to "Bitch" as a salutation!
"That's Ms. Bitch to you!" I've used this several times on non-student folks. Rather takes them back. ;)
Or Dr. Bitch, as the case may be (the only time I use "Dr." socially is when somebody expresses a dislike for "Ms." It's one of the more substantial, if only occasionally invoked, benefits of having finished the stupid degree).
Oh, the misery.
I hope you didn't stroke his face when you called him sweetie.
That struck me, too. And since the RGM is (officially, at least) gender-ambiguous (and apparently necessarily so), we really don't know what gender combination is involved. I guess the RGM had better not apply to be a boy scout leader, at least not quite yet (so frustrating; I admire almost everything about the Boy Scouts, especially anti-snowflake measures such as making the boys actually be responsible for things, including things that involve using knives and axes and such, but I just can't ignore the homophobia, especially the implication that GLBT people can't be "morally straight." I know too many who are -- well, at least as close as any of us get in this fallen world. I do hope they go ahead with some sort of increased openness soon). Thanks, Cal! And hang in there, RGM(s)! Nothing like the internet to confirm that there are still some pretty dangerous gender undercurrent, even (perhaps especially) in academia.
Cal's face IS big and round. Countdown to my own smackdown...3...2...1...
Fabby, Cal will get you. My motherfucker is so cool that at night the sheep count him. (Thanks to Mamet for the line.)
Woohoo. Is someone remembering to feed the duck?
It was either duck chow or the domain name.
I'm sending reinforcements to the compound. Wait... what DO ducks eat? Alpaca?
