Post a comment to be made a friend... (and to see shirtless Duo! *^.^*)

EDIT: Oops... Just realized that I'd disabled non-friend posting, so no one who's not already a friend could post here. My bad! I've now remedied that situation.

Once you've been made a friend...Collapse )

Went to the review session for Hinduism tonight. Therefore, I'm not going to attend the one in the morning -- sleep is better. Yay! I can sleep in!

The Quotable Professor Nemec, updatedCollapse )

Hahaha. Anyway, let's see, what else... guuuuh. Can't think. Tired. Oh well. Will sleep soon. Not going home for the reading holiday... might as well stay here. There's more to do in Charlottesville than in Winchester, and I won't have my parents bitching at me. And I'll get some time to myself. Yay.

Hmm... let's see... today was...

Interesting, mainly. We had a great talk in GDF about << La muerte... >>. I never got the chance when I read that story in Spanish last year to fully appreciate just how quinessentially it embodies the ideals of the Generacion de '98. All the imagery of walking around a labyrinthine house, coming always upon the same dreary vistas, surrounded by decaying images of a grandeur that has passed into disrepair, the idea that it was Lonnrot's own arrogance and refusal to see any but his own view that led to his downfall, the foreshadowing that if he had only listened to those around him, he might have lived... Yay for Jorge Luis Borges! I enjoyed the story in Spanish, but reading the translation... wow. Now I wish I'd brought my anthologies from last year -- I wanna read it in Spanish again!!

In Japanese, we had a fun conversation. We were practicing ordering things at the restaurant, and the dialogue between myself and Kosari-Amin-san went something like this (translated, of course)Collapse )

Donahue-sensei (the Japanese teacher on Mondays, when Koyama-sensei has the day off) heard us doing this and had us do the dialogue for the class. I think she enjoyed it. She's nicer than Koyama-sensei, but a little less 'together'

Umm... Nemec was funny in Hinduism again. See some of his silliness! Today's quotesCollapse )

Let's see, what else happened? I dunno. Not much. That was my day.

I'll post more later if more happens, or if I get bored.

REASONS TO STAY AWAKE DURING HINDUISM 209
Being a List of the Weird Shit Professor Nemec Says/Does During Class

On the Ancient Indus Civilization:
"The world we live in is a lot like the world they lived in, except they didn't have MTV."

"These are Indians! The damn Indus is in Pakistan!"

On Aryan poet-warriors:
"They could kick ass, but they sang!"

On a video for class:
"I promised you a video, but they shipped it to Jerry Falwell." (Remember, this is a Hinduism class)

On Vedic writings/poetry/whatever the hell
"I won't bore you with the details." [gibberish masquerading as Sanskrit] "Maybe I will."

"Nobody leave!" [jumps out the window]

"It's not that you become absentminded when you become a professor, it's just that after you become a professor you become absentminded."

"Is this interesting?" [a *few* nods] "Yesssss!"

"Lecture.... lecture.... lecture...." [holds up a piece of paper] "Today's lecture!"

"Big words are appreciated."

"Don't write 'you suck' [on the online class feedback form]. I'll start drinking and it'll get ugly."

"There was good American living back then [during the ancient Hindu times]"

"Upanisad means... what did I say?"

"Talking so fast I don't remember what I'm saying. Don't mind me."
