"Are you a marsupial?"

My brother greeted me with the above question this morning.

Which would be fine if he weren't eighteen years old.

Marshner Thingie

Sigh. Matthew, I've started working on my thingie for Marshner (yours is due the same day, right?). It's going to be kick-butt fun doing the research, but I fear actually presenting. What are we doing? How is it not unconstitutional to be forced to give a presentation on a topic in front of a professor who knows more about the topic than anyone else probably this side of Vatican City?

Siobahn's comment on Dr. Marshner:

"Um, Dr. Marshner, I have a question about -----."
"Oh. Well, in this book I wrote about that, it says..."

You get the idea. Why does it seem appealing to me to research the General Instruction on the Roman Missal for hours? Knowing that he's going to deep fry me in better information as soon as I open my mouth?

Who is out there reading this, I wonder.
