in cara's a**h!!2 class this morning.
laptop girl: diligently typing in cara's every word
jock boy: grinning flirtaciously,"that's a good way of taking notes. does it help remembering too?"
lg: "no, it's about the same", goes on typing
moral: don't flirt with me when i'm learning about absolute dating techniques, dumbnut.
cara's a good lecturer, though today she was worried about the amount of material she had to unload on her wee students in just one short hour. personally, i think she did rather well. she's got excellent interactive skills, uses humour generously, and encourages the youngsters to ask questions and think critically. her class is on the large side but students take participation and ask questions and answer verbal pop quizes like little angels. i wonder if it's not simply because their prof is so approachable and friendly;-) though of course there is a chance they are interested in archaeology too. (incidentally, no striking eye candy, but lots of interesting faces).
on the home front, k. reports that there have been some developments in the south corner of her living room. see below.
