Random Neuron Firings
Three tasty links this morning:
- Not to start a flame war (because I will put a fast end to it), but this was pretty straight-forward. Almost comically so.
- WHAT??? I can hear Kody laughing.
- Oh. Yes. OH YES. Am I getting the wrong degree? Yeah, yeah, yeah.
I love Reuters. And Thursdays.
To bad that website wasn’t around when I was in school. I probably would of had much more free time if I didn’t have to take EVERY MATH CLASS TWICE! Numbers. I just don’t get ’em.
I thought you’d get a kick out of that site, Kody. Cripes, *I* would’ve gotten a kick out of that site in high school (if they’d actually had “sites” when I was in high school).
How many honorary Beatles degrees are they gonna have to hand out? After all, at the least I think I deserve an honorary minor- and I didn’t become a Beatle-freak until 1995.
No joke, Ross. Anyone who even approaches “freak” level should be considered.
At last count, I had 22 books, all their (US) albums, tons of pictures, posters, clothing, jewelry, pencils, note cards, a ceramic jewelry box, and a lunch box. Does that not count for something??
Dang! I think you get the Doctorate- for the lunch box alone! Don’t tell me that’s an original lunch box from back in the day. What’s it look like? When did you get it? I used to be a big-time memorabilia collector (sold all my sports cards and collectables– including a Charlie Chaplin autograph – in 92 to fund my first trip to Europe) and I still like the stuff.
On that note, I still have a set of 8×10 autographs my mother obtained as a movie star-crazy teen in the 1950s: includes Jimmy Stewart, Jeff Chandler, Michael Rennie, and three Rock Hudsons. Rock’s sporting a tux in one of them, now that was one handsome dude.
Alas, no, Ross. Not an original, but one that a student of mine bought me when she was in New York. I just looked in the downstairs closet for it — I was going to snap a photo of it for you — but it’s not there. I’ll find it. I used it as a purse for about a year – great fun.
Charlie Chaplin’s autograph probably got you a tidy sum! I just recently cleaned out my Jax Beer collection, with the exception of a set of these.
And Rock Hudson was a cutie indeed!
Isn’t that cool? And a masters degree, even. At the very least, I think they should include this as a huuuuuuge part of any musicology degree. I’ll bet they don’t. In fact, I know they don’t.
What does one DO with a Beatleology degree? But then, what does one do with MOST degrees? At least this one would be fun. *hugs*
You said an unfortunate mouthful, Suz. (“What does one do with most degrees?”)
If I ever do get this DMA, and then if the stars align and I actually do get a uni job, I will definitely take a pay cut, right out of the box. WTH? What kind of “reward” for my work is that??? Sheesh.
I recently told a friend in email that I don’t even know why I did this. Just to see if I could, I guess…to better myself or some such nonsense. And don’t forget, to pay on student loans until I’m 76….no lie!!!
