Psssst . . . .

Professor Self: Psssst . . .hey, Medusa. Yoo hoo. Hello?? Do you realize that you have not done any actual work this week? And, no, leisurely reading that novel that you think you might teach but are pretty sure will not work at all does not constitute "designing a new course."

Self Who Apparently Fancies Herself a Princess or at the Very Least a Member of the Landed Gentry: Shush. I am reading blogs.

Professor Self: Ummm . .you have two articles to research and write, a major paperwork-intensive project due to the department, and you need to order the books for that class you are not designing. And you are planning to take two weeks off at the end of August.

Princess Self: How many times do I have to tell you that the laptop is in the shop? How am I supposed to do work without a computer?

Professor Self: You are on one right now.

Princess Self: Ah ha! My eBay auction is ending in 1 minute and 54 seconds. Quiet.

Professor Self: Are you bidding on another tiara?

Princess Self: Please, for the last time, HUSH!
