things that are a bad idea

1) licking your toenail clippers
2) drinking unpasteurized milk
3) going to teach a class when you are so full of rage that you can't stop yourself from ranting about stuff that has almost nothing to do with writing for a full 30 minutes of the 50 minute class managing to prettymuch shock the bejeebies out of your poor wide-eyed idealistic students, who are only 18 afterall and don't really need to hear about the varying degrees of hate rhetoric among religious groups, the inanity of being afraid of plastic, the logical problems associated with axiomatic thinking and atheism, pagan god pantheons as they relate to vampirism and transubstantiaion, or the horrors of breastfeeding in a puritanistic culture that finds such behaviors perverted.

sigh.

poor students.

Give us some credit. It takes a lot more than breastfeeding, evil evangelicals and vampires to scare the bejeebies out of this 18 year old.

Hope you survive the weekend.

Dear Wide-eyed Idealist BYU Student: We think you should get an "A."

what do vampires have to do with the pagan god pantheon? I thought knew everything about vampires...guess not!

wow. That must have been a very exciting day. None of my days are nearly that exciting. Half of me envies how exciting that must be to be in your head and half of me is very frightened of the very idea of living in your head. You must have the most intense life ever.

So. very. intense. (She says as she sits alone in an empty room thinking nothing except "Oh, my nose hurts." *&&^% sinus infection.)

Oh, vampire expert. So very, very much I could rant about.

And to WEIBYUS: credit granted.

And to mom and dad: I'll let you grade WEIBYUS's papers, then.

Now don't tease me. You know that would make my day.
