I so wish I could post this on my librarian blog. My students would love it, but alas, I must remain professional.
A kiss to send off all my students who are graduating tomorrow! ♥
Foo Fighters - My Hero
Still in the throes of joy and amazement over finally seeing a student on campus in an Incubus shirt the other day, guess what I saw today? A student in a Foo Fighters shirt. To understand the significance, you have to realize that I work on one of the largest college campuses in the world, and I’ve never, until this week, seen this. Sometimes I don’t understand our students, but I do love them. ♥
Update, April 19: A student in a Red Hot Chili Peppers shirt just asked me if I would grade his library assignment so he could turn it in (late) to his professor. “Anything for a Chili Peppers fan,” I replied. Unfortunately, I quickly realized that he had cheated on the assignment, so I had to give him a failing grade. Sometimes our students disappoint me, but I still love them. I can only hope he learned something.
This is from my work-related Twitter account, which mostly consists of boring stuff about college libraries. I do, however, tweet whenever I see a student in a T-shirt of a band I like.
"Lost in the Library," or, "Sorry for the Spoiler"
I just taught a library session for a very nice group of students who are working on an interesting assignment for their English class. They have to watch the first couple of seasons of Lost and then write an essay on a theme or idea related to the show. At the beginning of class, I showed this photo of my favorite character from Lost, the yummy Mr. Eko. Everybody flipped, because they hadn’t gotten that far into the show yet and I’d unintentionally unleashed a spoiler. “Oh, crap!” they wailed, “Now we know there are more people on the island!” (Well, of course there are - these folks were stranded on a “deserted” island and managed to have better social lives than any of us. Hello? This is Hollywood, people. When was the last time you were on a plane with that many hotties?)
Anyway, I’m really sorry, my darlings. If you make it all the way through the series, I’d love to know what you think of the ending. Just don’t get me started on it.
