I'm feeling pretty good today, and I still have left more than half the bottle of Apothic Inferno that I scored yesterday. So I have plenty to look forward to.
My class Friday had 1/3 absent and 1/4 of the survivors too hungover to function. Is it December yet?
Not enough places on campus sell Nanaimo bars. Only one, actually. But I don't like the coffee there. So I have to go to two different places in order to get a coffee and Nanaimo bar as a mid-morning pick-me-up. But given the problems most other people are facing, I keep this frivolous griping to myself internally and, well, here now during an Open Discussion session (otherwise it wouldn't be one, would it?).
A friend makes Nanaimo bars at Christmas (which will be here soon, as well December -- but the first 2/3 or so of December tend to be painful, so that may or may not be good news). They're definitely worth an additional trip.
Had a student tell me Friday, "I'm not reading the books anymore. Now I'm reading the simpler versions on the internet, so I understand what's going on a lot better. That's why I don't understand why I failed this midterm." If I take to my bed with the vapors for the rest of the semester can I start fresh in January?
That's the schedule I want.That way, I can be off SSMT.
I'd pay good money to see Angry Archie mud-wrestle Frod and Wicked Walter. If Cal videotaped it and put some original Cal music tracks over it, that would sell big.
I would post if the mod would accept submissions from temporary email addresses. When Cal and then Crystal were moderating I sent in a few that way. I really don't want to be doxxed. All the major free email services seem to require a cell phone number. I have looked in to getting a burner account but I haven't yet put in the effort to set one up. I don't want to spend a lot of time figuring out how to dodge hackers.
About 25%of the posts that have gone up in the past months have come to my email address. Some folks use GuerillaMail if they are worried about the moderator of this page trying to out you. If you imagine I would do that to you, I'd suggest GuerillaMail. TubaPlayingProf is someone who often sends in posts directly to the mod address, and not once have I tried to ruin his academic career by revealing that he reads this page.I'd be happy to help you in any way I could. You just tell me what it would take to get your work back on the page and I'll do whatever I can.I could even create a fake address for you and send the login information. That way you won't have to give any email site your actual information. Let me know and I'll get it started.Fab
I'm not suspicious of you, personally. I just saw the photo of Mark Zuckerberg with his laptop camera covered, plus read a bit of Dragnet Nation, and thought I'd better be more careful online in general. I sent a couple of posts by Guerrilla Mail that didn't go up, but I'll try again. Maybe I sent them to the wrong place.Sometimes I imagine a subpoena of my emails, ala Hillary Clinton. My imagination is probably overactive.
The main mod email, read mostly by me since 2010, is email@example.com.
I have about 6,000,000 letters of recommendation to write before December first.
