Today during Greek class

Professor: we need to get to the end of this book of the Odyssey cause of the test Monday, so we have to clip through this translation. *does two lines*
Student: What's going on with this one niggly word?
Professor: *expounds at length*
Same Student: What's going on with this other niggly word?
Professor: *expounds lengthierly*
Same Student: Wait, what was that first word again?
Different Student: What's going on with this one verb tense?
Professor: *argues with student for minutes on end*
Professor: all right, let's have someone translate *does ten lines himself*...does someone want to take over? *does ten more lines* somebody else should do this *does ten more lines*
Sara: *attempts to puncture carotid artery with pen*
Pen: *isn't sharp enough*
Class: *finally ends*
Professor and Students: *refuse to stop talking*
Sara: *packs up things loudly*
Students: *Block doorway while discussing something pointless*
Sara: *considers screaming "HULK SMASH CLASSICS DEPARTMENT" but restrains self*

I'm giving Blockbuster.com a shot, since the real blockbuster never really has what i want to see anyway. At the moment I'm watching some random sailor moon episodes (it's randomly the ones where they meet Uranus and think she's a guy [must call kaeti to laugh]), and snickering because the names of their superpowers are so stupid. I watched for five minutes before Sailor Moon's voice was SO IRRITATING that i had to switch it over to the Japanese subtitled side.

I think that makes me officially a snob.

the long-promised photo meme

okay, i finally have all my shit together, and figured out how to use my uvm webspace (hahahaha, internet pirates AHOY PREPARE TO BE BOARDED) so here at last are a bunch of things for the photo meme:

isiscolo wanted: a picture of the Ferry and a picture of the harbor (actually she wanted boats, but this is the best i could do).

dipping_sauce wanted: a picture of the library, and the classics building, and the fountain on campus, and gets the statue that seems to glare at you when you go into the classics dept as a bonus. and also our grad office.

for fantomeq, swimchica623, and rikibeth: the rat chilling out on my bed, what the rat does all day when i am at class, and the rat trying to steal Ellen's brother's Jack Daniels.

In addition, here are the flying monkeys on top of a town building, the tollbooth going into Canada, a blurry shot of the Montreal skyline, and also something interesting on a doorway near the harbor.

tell me if you have any trouble seeing them, i think have all the permissions kinks worked out (that sounded kind of dirty).
