Does anyone ever *really* get out of the practical joke stage, though?
Lol, Not any of my family that's for sure, I just survived cleaning up the 'Upside down large glass of water on cabinet' trick.

I've always been a fan of the clingfilm over soap/shampoo bottles. And not to mention some of the elaborate pranks i got up to in grade school with my teachers and class...

I think my favourite of all time wa when I rolled a whole box of chalk up on into one of those maps that rolled up like a window shade, hanging in my Geography class for April fools day, when my teacher was called from the room.. Well the teacher didn't use the map that day. Two weeks later, when everyone including me had forgotten about it he vigorously pulled the map down and chalk went flying everywhere , and it all hit the floor shattering into a million pieces and rolling everywhere. Everyone including myself sat there in shock. No one said "April Fools."

Hey, I was a little shy when I first signed up. And this exam season has really kicked my butt. My last exam is tomorrow, and i feel like i've aged at least five years in the last three weeks.


What's that? The prospect of completing the studies and knowing you will soon be a 'real one' of whatever you were studying, and suddenly you start to behave the part. I have seen and experienced that effect.

Fluids.

Drink more fluids.

Beer is a good one ... got me through law school.


That fluid helped one of our Rhodes scholars to become prime minister. But at some point he realised it was spoiling his life and stopped.

Oh no, this is knowing that I have another three years of this, only with increasingly complex subjects, before I get to be a 'real' whatever. And even then, I hopefully move on to a doctorate.

Even that is not new: some guy WROTE by about 1000 BC "there is nothing new under the sun".

One I heard of a number of times but never saw was the glad wrap on the toilet seat.

Doctorate, the best fun study I ever did. Afterwards there was one of my old colleagues who had just got his and I knew it was a big deal to him, He asked how it felt to have mine and I answered: "now the sign on my door matches that on everyone else's". It was nice to get it, then I could get on with the rest of my life.

See, usually, it's not an issue. It's just that this semester has been *really* long. By august I'll be raring for another seven years for sure

So if 5000 in 5 years qualifies for that, then what does my yearly average class me as?


(It was a rhetorical question. I'm fairly certain that I don't really want to know. )
