Break out the hot chocolate with extra mallows, please!!!
We still have a few inches of sleet left over from Q. Now we are to have 3 to 9 maybe 12 inches of snow. It's been snowing super hard all afternoon. Looks like I won't get out until May at this rate. :( :love:
I gotta put one of those Old Brooklyn Lanterns in the lost and found.....
I missed most of the week in there.....
I have to boil some water, serve some BBQ, get a clean joke, smile about Mark Martin's finish, laugh about the coverage and ??????????
Another storm is coming down the pike - how do I know this? Ed has been stopping in front of the heater and almost resting against it!!!!!:o
I haven't come up with a good joke, let alone a clean good one, since I dropped in last week..
Here is a little anecdote from my college days.. perhaps this might do? -
Back 1,000 years ago when I was a college freshman (freshperson these PC days now?) .. the very first class I went to was a history class, in huge lecture hall with the professor at a podium up front. On that first day he gave us a little insight into life in academia and those who pursue it as a career choice:
"You all know what B.S. is .. well, M.S. is More of the Same.. and PH.D. is Piled Higher and Deeper!"
(I apologize if this is still a bit ...off-color? for the requirements?
You thank him now......just remember this when you have to help clean up after a food fight!
Then can be personalized, too...
I am brewing tea and making pancakes.......
Welcome Phesina! We haven't had anyone new pass their "bar exam" in awhile.:D
Thank you, Smokey! Glad to be here!
And another fine member is added to the Thursday Bar......................Welcome - your joke was good too.
Yes - welcome Pat. Hopefully Orc will be on his best behavior (whatever that is :rolleyes: :eek: ) - for a while anyway. It would be a shame to scare you off! Maybe the barkeep can just lock him in L&F for a while. :D
Thanks, Gini and Ellie! And I'm looking forward to seeing whatever Orc is.
I'm glad you liked the joke, Gini. I bet that professor hauled that out for every class of first-time students. It helped demystify the university world for the 300 or so newly-minted freshies including me in that lecture hall that day!
I get the idea that line is well known in the graduate student world. I pet-sit on occasion for a grad student in mathematics here at the University of Michigan, and she has a paperback book entitled "Piled Higher and Deeper," full of grad-student cartoons.
