i'm just a literary tease, my reputation's on its knees.

Annoying Your Professors #77

March 1, 2005

Bring a vacuum to class. Halfway through class, stand up and start using it. If your professor objects, explain that you "can't stand sitting in this pigsty any longer." Keep vacuuming, grumbling angrily.

I liked this one because it reminds me of my weekend at home. My mom is in England, right? This leaves my brother, a young man of 20, and my father at home alone. This is not a good idea. They live on a diet of Wendy's chili and macaroni and cheese from a box, except for those days when I find it in my heart to go and cook them dinner. They keep up pretty well on the dishes and the laundry but the rest of the house?

Shambles, I tell you!

I went over this weekend to cook dinner and hang out but I couldn't bear the unvacuumed state of the living room so I freaked out and started cleaning. I even, I am proud of myself for this one, convinced my brother to clean his room - a scary mixture of empty soda cans and used crumpled kleenexes from the cold he's been sporting all month. It was appalling, believe me. Now, I am not a neat freak by any stretch of the imagination so for me to freak out and start cleaning, well, that's saying a lot. Anyway... that is all.

I like your blog very much. Come on my blog (even if is in italian) just to say hello.

I love it, Moira. Where are you getting all these fabulous ideas??? If I ever get annoyed enough at my professors that I'd like to return the favor, I believe this particular suggestion would be right up my alley as a regional "neat freak." Wonderful; and it breaks up all this academic blogging!

And the month in French... c'est fantastique, mon amie. J'aime le francais. *le sigh* :-)

A friend of mine sent me an email with a list of these - I figured I'd use some from the email and some of my own ideas... this one I can't take credit for I'm afraid but I don't have the original author... still though, I thought it would be a nice break from academia... my head needed a break :c)
