Yeah!!!! I'm DONE! DONE with English Lit!! Good bye Willy Shakespeare!! KISS MY ASS!!! I don't care that you are a famous playwright... I HAD NO CLUE WHAT YOU WERE SAYING.
Oh man. I'm so RELIEVED.
I just took my final. (Obviously). I believe I pretty much aced the terminology, and I knew all I was supposed to know about Shakespeare. Go ahead. Ask me any question you want about him.... Why'd he write sonnets?? CAUSE OF THE PLAGUE... Where was he born? STRATFORD-UPON-AVON. And he's buried there too... in the Holy Trinity Church. His wife's name was Anne Hatheway...and I've even uncovered evidence that the dude was bisexual. (Go ahead...read Wikipedia). But then, the teacher did NOT appreciate my comments on THAT angle. Oh well....
So, I'll be back later after I've destressed my brain. I need to shake loose the Eng. Lit stuff now cause I'm shallow like that.
Everybody !! I got a NEW NIECE!!
Little Miss Piper Leigh (insert last name here) was JUST born!! 8 lbs*, 21 inches.
allright!!! Another impressionable young mind I get to corrupt!! WOOOT!!!!!!!!!
*LOL! I'm such a dumb ass. I got soooo excited about Piper, that I accidently typed in 8 OUNCES, 21 inches -- which would have made for an incredibly long and skinny baby...

    Congratulations, Norman! You must feel very relieved now.

    For years now, I've thought that when I retired, I would take some more college classes about things I've never studied, because really, I love learning. But reading your last few posts may have changed my mind :(

    Yay!!! Good job! There really is no better feeling than finishing a course.

    I have a degree in English Lit. Let me tell you Norman, I feel your pain better than most! (And, for the record, I too take issue with the whole bi-sexual thing! I just hate what it does to the reading of some of the plays and sonnets!)

    I absolutely love the name Piper - I'm glad someone else used it, maybe it won't be that uncommon if I ever have a kid.

    At least she wasn't 14 lbs...

    I remember my lit class, too. The one thing that I remember after all these years is, why do the British (English) name their towns like Stratford-Upon-Avon? Why not just Stratford? Is it as opposed to Stratford-Upon-The Mall, or Stratford-Upon-Willey Street? I’m glad I was born in America and, by the grace of God, in the South. I know you feel RELEAVED to be out of school for awhile.

    Congrats on school being done and also on a new neice! I love her name!

    My father's Shakespeare final, he used to include a section with 25 quotes, and you had to name the speaker and the play, one point each.

    He was the toughest grader in the department, by widespread reputation. (He was also one of the best professors. It was always fun to see people take the challenge.)

    When I took Shakespeare in college, I realized there's no way I could've gotten anything resembling a good score on that part of the final, and I got an A in the class!

    So congrats on surviving!

    Congrats on the new niece. I can't wait to see pics!!

    Yeah. I never understood what ol' Willy was trying to say. Why not just say it in plain English dude?

    Heh, the casino bus played "When Harry Met Sally" on the ride home. Your post's beginning now sounds VERY familiar! Anyway, congratulations on finishing the class and the new niece.
