Wednesday Hodgepodge

Thanks to Joyce for hosting the Wednesday Hodgepodge...

1. When were you last facing an ocean? Using just ONE word, describe how you felt as you faced that ocean.

Today (I see the ocean everyday) - Nice.

2. What are three sounds you hate to hear?

Knock, knock, knock

3. This question comes to you courtesy of some real life friends. Hi real life friends! When you shop for yourself, do you try everything on in the store before buying or do you buy, try on at home, and then return what you don't like or what doesn't fit?

I am a guy - I do not try anything except suits (and that is for tailoring purposes)...

4. February 26th is National Pistachio Day...are you a fan of the little green nut? Do you use them in cooking and baking or prefer to eat them right out of the shell?

Nope, I am quite allergic to them.

5. When did you last have to compromise with someone? Were you happy to reach the compromise or slightly irritated it was necessary?

I was a nice to a student who was five minutes late handing in their take home exam today.  I did however, make them explain why they were late and sweat it out first.

6. Have you ever written a letter to an elected official? Did you get a response?

I worked in politics, so yes, I have done this a lot and yes, I get my correspondence (even to this day)  responded to.

7. We 'March' into a new month at the end of this week...what's something on your March calendar guaranteed to make you smile?

My birthday I guess.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Why do students who had a take home exam for a week, choose fifteen minutes before class to print their work?  Oh,yeah, they did it at the last moment and they expect me to then have sympathy for them when things don't work out so well.  Here is a hint.  If you do not want to have a problem: 1) Get it done well ahead of time; 2) Have it printed and ready the day before; and 3) Come to class early.
