"swallow the moon"

I would like to get back in the habit of posting amusing professor anecdotes, even when I don't have the time/substance to post real entries.

I do look forward to eventually making posts of real substance again.

The tri-department flyout seems to have gone okay.  The department-specific second-flyout is going well; Aleta's done most of the legwork on that one, which I am totally okay with.  The candidate gave us each a box of See's Famous Old Time Candies.  I do now endorse his candidacy for professor here :)

I'm unsure as to whether we're losing one or two faculty, so we may only be hiring one new FA (to replace Alyssa).

You would really think sites like eurail.com would be more user-friendly.  Like making schedules and prices (complete with currency denotation) easily and obviously accessible.

from CAUMC tonight:
Anthony: Plato was wrong about almost everything; Plato proved that.
Trelawney: I consider Aristotle a footnote to Plato.
Anthony: They were both footnotes to Socrates.
[Emma, I thought of, but did not mention, your suggestion about Socrates being a fictitious creation.]
