Scott Hardie | December 7, 2001
All semester long I worked hard for a teacher who was very demanding. I skipped her class many times in the first few weeks, then she told me that if I skipped again, I'd fail, but otherwise I'd get a C. I kept my end of the bargain, and today in a conference she kept hers. Unless I outright skip next week's final exam, I'll get a C in the class, guaranteed. It's not quite worth what I went through to get it, but at least my effort had some reward. It feels good. I love the end of the semester.

Gender Reveal Parties

Have you been to a gender reveal party? Would you even host such a thing? It's where expectant parents cut into a cake in front of family and friends to reveal pink or blue inside, discovering the gender of their baby in front of everybody in their lives. Go »

Not in Kansas Any More

Who here has actually listened to "Dark Side of the Moon" while watching "The Wizard of Oz"? Is it truly an amazing match, or is that just an urban legend that nobody debunks because nobody actually tries it? Go »
