If we can't talk straight in a barbershop, then where can we talk straight?

Hello folks. I am here with a segment on good news/bad news from AL's world.

Sheesh, why did I choose that stupid bloggy nick name?

It always reminds me of WEird AL....or Tim-the-Tool-Man Taylor's sidekick AL.

Grrrrreeaaat. All you guys probably picture me as a plump, bearded man who wears flannel =\ .

Well, I assure you, I DO NOT wear flannel. OKAY?

Anyways, let's not delay this.


Bad News ....

I have this professor that talks a mile a minute, covers the blackboard with multiple pages of notes, and then lets it all register for about 0.0008 seconds. THEN he erases it all away and starts doing PROBLEMS which becomes a big PROBLEM for me because he likes to call on people and put them on the spot.

Not a good idea for someone like ME with a short-term memory. Sometimes I cry when I think of poor Dory from Nemo, her life resonates so well with mine.

But I digress.

The other day, the proff. got done presenting some bit of material, then turned to the class and started questioning us. He pointed to the kid behind me who couldn't answer the question, at which point he turns to me and says "Go ahead"

and this is what goes on in my brain:

Why does he sound so confident in me? "Go ahead".....???

Oh God, Oh GOD...I'm not even sure I heard the question right...

Anyways, the answer HAS to have a "t" in it, this much I know.

*Trying to come up with an equation*

Oh wow, everyone's waiting for me to answer.

Ok remember, something with "t" should get you in the ballpark.....

*Open my mouth and out comes*


What the heck? WHAT the heck was that?

Needless to say, I think the proff. has given up on me since that day.


More Bad News is when....

the graduate students taking this same class as a "refresher"
giggle every time I make a stupid mistake like that.

Thanks guys.


Even MORE Bad News ....

is the girl on campus who was wearing short shorts ....with knee high furry boots. What. the. Frick.
She made me feel hot and cold all at the same time. That's what I call fashion of the lame.

But of course...she probably thinks I'm lame too, for wearing long sleeve tees all throughout the summer.


Good News ....

is when I listen to my voicemail today and hear CC's voice saying:

"eh..wiiee....oh. UGH. FAIL!"

CC I have no idea what that was about, but it made my day. Thanks =).

AL said...

Maybe you need to take a photo with your phone to the blackboard or something.

I’d love to get a voicemail from CC, you’re so lucky ;b

Sounds like an awesome message. And LOL!!!! I hate it when you kinda know the answer to something, open your mouth, and out comes something completely bizarre.
