random moments

There was the colleague I saw this morning who didn’t moderate the emphasis: “You look like you could use a cup of coffee.”
The professor who took pains to express in several different ways what I “need to understand.”
The lecture that included details about the despicable events at Duke over the weekend.
The cartoon drawn for me by a student mocking my emphasis on parsimony in writing. I forgot to write down the sentence reconstructed to correct a dangling modifier. ­čÖü It referred to “festering trolls in the basement” and was a genuine collaborative effort, with the adjective, subject, and location (I think) all supplied by different individuals. More of this!
The idea for a SNL skit on a PR firm specializing in dissertation titles for graduate students.
Finally, there were blini. (Delicious!)
