It is FINALLY warm by me Laughing

1. Do you have allergies to pollen? What are your symptoms?

2. Did you do anything fun for Mother's Day?

3. When it is humid, does your hair go straight or frizz up?

How small-minded to think that history isn't exciting! But your lack of interest in it doesn't surprise me, Jams. History class usually serves as an introduction to empathy, critical thinking, and gives a sense of perspective--none of which are your hallmarks.

    Bord, I have been giggling all morning at the idea that this whole thread was meant as a "neener, neener, LOOK! Bord has frizzy hair! OMG! lololol!!!!!!!!" It is worth it just for that.
    Ummmm...since I started the thread I know it was not. I actually am not looking forward to the frizz I get as the humidity is starting by me. Sigh....

      Right, well, I see students who don't bother going to class either, but it's rarely got anything to do with the subject matter or the professor. One of my geography professors last semester told the class about a handful of students in the same situation as Bords': they hadn't come to class and were scrambling to pass once it was crunch time. This man by far, is one of the most insightful and knowledgable professors I've ever had. He also spent 20-some odd years studying under one of the country's most well-known geographers. Hands-down, one of the best classes I've ever taken. And still, there are always a handful of students who, for whatever reason, don't make it to class.

      .  Did I say my classes have been cut?  News to me.  Every university has its bottom tier of students. My fall classes are already full with a wait list.  We had 62 applications for 14 spots in our grad program this year.  I just returned from a professional meeting with 3000+ medievalists and 500+ sessions.  So I think we're good.  I'm not sure why these two have such a pressing need to discount my work and my field.  Very small-minded, I agree.

      Some people are comfortable with their own skin, so to speak.  Why would that be a problem?

      A black women wanting to bleach their skin lighter or an Asian woman getting surgery to have their eyes look more causcasian is enhancing your natural beauty, iyo?  Wow.

      I don't know, I learned a long time ago to get a hair cut that works with the natural type of hair that I have, but then again I'm also pretty comfortable in my own skin.
