I never look back, darling. It distracts from the now.

Good for you! 
In the other thread you posted, I suggested a small celebration.  Maybe Spring Break you can add a 2 or 3 day 'vacation' of sorts.

but as you posted above, life will not be much different!  Keep chopping and toting the wood!!

Ah, another Groundhog Day!
After Punxsutawney Phil made his prediction, DC's Potomac Phil made his at DuPont Circle. Early spring and political gridlock.

This one?

Apparently prof stripped to get the attention of her male peers.

Prof must be really messed up if she thought that this was the only way to get her colleagues/peers's attention.

Clearly, that's going to make people focus on her ideas. As if.

It takes so little to be above average.

I suspect she has bigger problems.

By coincidence I saw this discussion on the same day that a woman in our state was sentenced for a psychotic attack in which she assaulted three people and knifed a family dog.  While unclothed.  She was out of her mind on drugs at the time.
If any will come after me, let him deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow me.
Whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever will lose his life for my sake will find it.
For how does a man profit if he gains the whole world, but loses his soul?

Quote from: Puget on January 26, 2024, 10:23:25 AMJust got the email from the dean's office that I've been recommended for tenure!  (still goes to provost and board, but I've never heard of them reversing here)

But I can't take a break to celebrate because have to go back to doing grant reviews due Monday, which doesn't seem quite fair somehow. Before tenure, chop wood, carry water. After tenure, chop wood, carry water.

I missed seeing this earlier.  Congratulations Puget! Chop wood and carry water with job security and hopefully a good raise!

Yesterday I had a very weird puzzle day. Connections was a snap. Despite making fine guesses in World, nope. Quordle? Killed it. Octordle? Efficient guesses every one, didn't get two of them.

BTW, my Wordle-Quordle-Octordle strategy is designed to maximize success, and means I'll never be in the got it in fewest tries group.

Join us on the daily Spelling Bee thread! We also give updates for Wordle and Letter Boxed. I do connections but don't usually report out on that thread.

 Prof. Bateman may be a nudist in her free time, which is fine, but this is ridiculous. And funny.
The lack of women in Economics is not really the issue here.
I wonder if she is single (or her husband knows?)  She is diminutive and needs sexual attention. Takes a lot of courage.
 Unprofessional, silly and yet cute. They will not look at her the same way again and she knows it.
 Would you ask her to leave the office or stay? As long as you're here...
