So, one of my students shared this with me as we were talking about American pop Culture today, and I laughed so hard, I hd to share it with all of you.

15th-Nov-2007 10:11 am - Grading Hell: Part Infinity
goyle reading
I have now been up all freaking night (almost) once more grading utter and complete crap.

And therefore, I shall share.  Be warned.

The prompt was name a time you have experienced or witnessed deviant behavior and discuss what theory best explains it.

23rd-Oct-2007 09:18 am - Grading fun

Ok.

So.

Here we go again.  Here's my fav from this round.  I'm copying the grammar errors on purpose....

My comments in red

Enjoy:

    I believe if Matt Heid was continue to do good in school, he will have a good education (really?  I thought that was always the purpose of education?).  Also, he might would be able for a good job in the long run.  His appearance may need to change as far as his teeth and the way he present hisself (how about how you present yourself?).  The residence that he living in is terrible but if he was willing to try and find a job to help out his mother they just might have a little better living (well, that's why I work....).  Rather than him downing his mother all the time.  Matt Heid seem like he has a good head on his shoulder.  If he make several changes in his way of living things will work out.  Matt social life might turn out to be good, just because he has friends now, even though he is ashame of the way he live (and you should be ashamed of the way you write....).
    Matt Heid will make it in the long run as long as he continue to do good in school and get involve in different things as far as the community.  His look would turn out good, once he build up his grammer (grammar effects looks?  not to mention she misspelled grammar which was hard to write....  and wow... pot, meet kettle!)  and change his appearance just alittle.  As long as Matt keep having a positive mind set, he will make it in life.

Again, I point out that this is a 300 level class!  And this is a native English speaker.  It was HARD to keep the grammar and spelling errors.  My brain twitched typing them on purpose....

OK. So. If any of you are Emo's, I apologize in advance.

Maybe.

Anyway.

We were talking about emo kids in my class today (taking, not teaching, on family) and I, old fart that I am, had no idea what it was. So, I googled it an came up with this video on you tube which is freaking hilarious.



Again, I apologize to any of my friends this describes. But dear lord.

And... I'm in grading hell today. So I'll probably have snippets for you all later.

OK.

I have to share.

I've had a few that make me want to cry.

Here's one. Copied word for word. Including spelling and grammar errors.

"I was sure I did nothing wrong for him to pull me over. This was around 1:20 am in the morning. After he approached the car I asked why he pulled me over. He said my muffler was ato loud and asked for my registration and insurance and liscense. Well I knew this was discrimination because I had no muffler on the car at all."


Or this:

"I know I was dicriminated against cause I'm a white mail and they didn't let me into my first pick school."

Really? Maybe it was because you have no concept of homophones?

No, that can't be it?

This is a JUNIOR LEVEL CLASS, people. WTF????

19th-Sep-2007 10:39 am - Upward Spiral!
con
Let the pimping begin!

Want to play in a FUN game, that's plot based and not all dark and sad?

Upward Spiral, opening October 1, is a post-DH, canon compliant game (Minus the epilogue which I'm sure surprises NO ONE reading this on MY f-page. Even you, Shiraz. You may LIKE R/H, but it can't surprise you that I don't....)

The game's premise is based on the remaining divisions in the Wizarding World and the best ways to overcome them.

Subplots will be encouraged!

Check it out!

We've all seen the little quizzy things that sort us.

This

Is a 122 question personality test. It's not about what your favorite color is or easy to determine questions.

Take it and see.

19th-Aug-2007 01:51 pm - Turning 30
con
Ok.

So.

In but two weeks from tomorrow, I will hit the big 3-0.

That's right. Turning 30.

I would like to think that I'm not the kind of girl (do I have to refer to myself as a woman now?) who is disturbed by these things. Hell, I've actually told people I was thirty before.

That said, I must admit I was (kind of) looking forward to hitting my sexual prime. I mean, there has to be SOME compensation to getting older, right? Other than hot flashes.

Which... to be honest... I'm also looking forward to. Not the hot flashes, so much. But the end of the menstrual cycles. Honestly, I think the best part of pregnancy is not having periods. Although... yeah. It isn't enough to compensate for the rest of being pregnant.

NOT THAT I AM THANK GOD!!!!!!!

Ok.

Anyway. So.

Sexual peak, right?

Apparently not.

According to this.

Sad. Huh?

I suppose I must chalk the increased desire lately to getting off the evilness known as The Pill and finally convincing my doctor that I don't plan to have children and am willing to take the risks to have an IUD instead.

YEAH non hormonal forms of birth control!

I have to admit, I've never been so amused by reading a comment someone made in someone else's journal.

Credit where it's due....

SPEW has a new meaning. Society for the Prevention of Epilogue Weddings. And I so want to join. Hell, I'd by a tee-shirt.

Ah well. My OTPs have always been AU. Shrugs.

I'm watching the Scorpion King. It's taking my mind off the badness.

Well. It has begun. We are now almost done with week two.

And I am having the week from Hell.

Last weekend, Mike was driving to Ohio to finish movie, and was about 15 miles north of the MI/OH border, when he was stopped for speeding. And because he has an OH license, they took it away. Apparently, this is how they insure he pays the fine.

So instead of coming HOME, he continues on to Columbus.

40 miles from his old apartment, his car dies.

Now, it's been acting up for a month, and I told him to take it in. But did he? NO.

Men. I swear. You can't reason with them, and you can't kill them.

$3500 in repairs. Same estimate from 2 places. Plus another $450 for a new clutch.

Can I kill him yet? NO? Are you sure?

THEN, he has the all to call me on Saturday night and tell me that the car won't be ready until Friday, and can I please come get him. It's a 4 hour drive, each way. Um. NO. I tell him to rent a car, which he can't, because HE DOESN'T HAVE A LICENSE.

Sigh.

So he ended up taking the Greyhound Bus. It was cheaper ($55) than me driving both ways with as in MI being $3.50 or so a gallon.

And we found out today that the car won't be done until at least Tuesday, but we have to go done cause he has Reserves this weekend. So... you guessed it.

Are you SURE I can't kill him? Please?

All right, all right, I don't mean to spam your f-page. I know, I post nothing for MONTHS and then...

Anyway.

I was sent an amusing link and I had to share.

How to Eat Pussy

One of my college friends and I had thought about writing a How-To guide for our male friends, but never did. This is still from a male perspective.... but over all it's not too bad. I still have to wonder why they don't teach technique in Sex Ed, though. It would make the first 5 or 6 years of sexual activity MUCH more enjoyable.

Well, life continues to be INSANE!

Although, this time, the news is GOOD!

Mike's moving up here! He has a new job! After 2 YEARS of living apart, we'll be living together again. Dear god. I have to live with a BOY! (INSERT SOB for the lack of toilet seat downing in my future).

Further insanity: I begin teaching a class in a week that is WAY out of my comp areas AND I was assigned at the last minute. So I am desperately trying to finish the syllabus. Sigh.

More happy news.... I got a puppy. His name's Dragonslair's Kublai Khan, and he's a Leonberger. This was him when I got him at 10 weeks. He was about 30 pounds then. His birthday was March 5, so he's about 3 and a half months now and already weighs 50 pounds! I'm working on taking a new pic.

As for my fics... yes. I DO plan to finish them. Still. I promise.

Such fun, being a traveler. I've been having so much fun visiting my friend Mar in chicago. We're writing and hanging and it's every so much fun.

Of course, I feel like such a slacker. I have papers to grade (of course) and papers to write. C'est la vie.

So, those of you on my f-list that i haven't heard from in a while.... tag this and let's catch up....

So, for my most wonderful beta's ([info]gardengirl6 ) birthday (which was in January) ashleyfanfic and I co-authored a fic which is now posted at CG titled Unexpected

Oh.  Dear.  God.

And I say that as a non-religious type.

But JAYSUS.

They're KILLING me.

Between the undergrads and this paper I'm writing I'm ready to shoot myself.

Now, I am, by no means, good with grammar.  My loving beta can attest to this.  But for fuck's sake.

We're looking at lyrics.  And one of the songs has the lyric "My heart bleeded."

Is that even a word?  bleeded?

So. It's now the new semester.

The good news is that I'm liking my classes.

The bad news is that classes have started.

And I hate email.

Hate it.

So... my lovely beta's birthday is coming up. This weekend, I am writing her present. I had an idea. A naughty one (which she wanted....) so... yeah.

The question is... when the gift is for the beta... who beta's it?

*giggle*
