His neighbor, Prof. Sunshine, dropped by to complain that the curtains are too thick and keep so much sunlight out that he has to keep the lights on when the curtains are closed.

Prof. High'n'Mighty complained bitterly about the exam rooms not being available online. He included the flake in CC who had asked him where the exam to be. I pointed out to the flake that the instructions for finding the rooms is ON THE HOME PAGE of the damn system. You just have to read them. I requested Prof. H'n'M to restrict bitches to my box, not to students. He replied, all self-important, that if both he and the student can't find the room, it must be our fault. I haven't answered "reading is a precondition to success at university" yet, I don't quite dare that one yet.

The Gallo Zinfandel is much needed tonight.

  1. You might remind Professor Sunshine that if the curtains are not to his liking, he can have them made into a fetching suit...although this may give him some sick idea about your potential capacity as a seamstress. Alternatively, you could send him links to a google map of the nearest gas station and an Amazon page for a 2-gallon gas container.

  2. If your complement rate were a batting average, you would have the second highest batting average in both the American and National Leagues, if that's any consolation.

    I'll tip a large glass of Gallo to you. Except it'll be whiskey. And many glasses.

  3. The Almaden Rhine wine isn't too awful, either.
