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.


  1. ME!! hmmmmm does not sound like a fun presentation. I much prefer the kind where you can teach the teacher something. I'm so going to call you tomorrow and we can discuss this.

  2. I read it, too! Why are you just talking to Matt? It makes me sad. I want to be talked to, too. Yea, talking in front of Marshner scares me. Luckily, I will be writing at him instead. :)

  3. Wait, reading the GIRM?

    Little Imp, what are you doing your presentation on? How similar are our topics?
