Impressive and Unimpressive: Session Five

Here is a good round-up of the impressive and unimpressive currently on my radar.


1) This banana bread recipe, so yummy (recipe is below)

2) My ability to defend for my masters successfully, and the 96 page thesis that accompanied that.

3) This response to the ridiculous Rick Perry ad, now infamous (and now the most disliked video in youtube history, out 'disliking' Rebecca Black. Nice.)


1) That I have to proctor and grade an exam for the undergrads this week, so I didn't really get out of finals without feeling a bit of the pressure. I am adding this picture on their final, though I don't think the Dukies will get the joke (Oh! Dukie SLAM!)
Funny College Ecard: I hope your mind-boggling six-figure tuition doesn't add more pressure to your performance on final exams.

2) My ability to read the fine-print before taking out all those grad school loans. Apparently loans for grad school don't come with a grace period and I am to have a job January 1. So this e-card is for me. Karma much? - says my undergrads I just slammed.
Funny College Ecard: Sorry you chose such an expensive school during the worst economy in decades.

3) My ability to find hats that fit my surprisingly large head (thanks, Mom). Good news though, I found this sweet ADJUSTABLE Santa hat at RiteAid for two bucks. It's a Christmas Miracle!!
