Blade Remade, or That'll Teach Me

6 hours of sleep in 3 days, one meal in 26 hours (plus a CHOKLIT tortoise, soda cracker, and oatmeal raisin coonkie).
It's amazing how much research one can get done when one stops eating and sleeping.

I had to practically rewrite an entire M.S. thesis into a conference paper. You who are in academia (celandineb, jereeza), are teachers of long experience (carida_46), or seeking to become faculty some day (f00dave, yahvah, wondergurl_77, csn?). You are my witnesses - that will teach me to sign thesis cover pages after a final proofreading but before I have seen the changes committed. Grr.

Achtung: The blade has been applied. Ahh, sweet hobbitty hairlessness. Thanks be.

Edit, 01:30 CST 28 Jan 2004: I just saw in shmeepster's LJ that Sean Astin didn't get a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination, even though The Return of The King garnered a whopping eleven nods 1, including Best Picture and Best Director. Oh, well. They made us roll initiative, is wot.

Edit, 02:00 CST 28 Jan 2004: Yernow wot? I may have found my theme song.

1 From TORn. See, I can write citations, why can't they?

I wouldn't bet on Best Adapted Screenplay, mind. *g*
I, uh, never do... (that's why I had a 40-75% prediction rate!)
... but for that film I wouldn't vote for best adapted screenplay.

When Philippa makes lembas into sutff that Sam doesn't like...
That's the last leaf!

No popups here ... Mozilla Firebird, plain-vanilla version, yuh know?
But ... it seemed more than just a pop-up ... there was no other page. (i.e. pop-ups are secondary, yaa?)

I own a razor for shaving stubble, but not for cutting my own hair. I thought you meant you got a haircut. :-P

Yikes. Yeah, that's a drag. Nice citation you stuck in there. ;-)

We're doing a plagiarism exercise in one of my classes tomorrow - they don't have to do actual footnotes for their first paper, but they do have to cite if they quote, at least. Of course these are only undergrads, in a freshman-level class...

Thansk!

One hopes that they will learn by the time they are M.S. students.
Mine dknot.
(Well, from now on, if they are, they will...
or they will be flayedflogged with a wet noodlewhip of many trasks.)

Re: plagiarism - f00dave and I had a brief discussion on this recently.

...waaaay bax before you were born when I was a student with energy and enthusiasm, it was a documented fact that hunger sharpened the brain..of course it was probably an excuse to starve us..........
Lack of sleep on the other hand......... :-(

Oh, yes - it's well documented that taking in just minimum number of calories needed is a life prolonger.

Lack of sleep on the other hand......... :-(
Premature aging, they say, but I dknot feel aged a daz!
/me hides his Pwecious

I fogure the gain from hunger balances out the loss from lack of sleep. Which is fine, acos more waking hours is more life nazwaz. ;-)

So if you never eat, then you'll never have to sleep?
