favorite part of the day:

receiving a message on my cell phone:

"hello, i couldn't tell from the message if this is where I can reach aubrey keating or not, but this is the number he put down to reach him. my name is gordon trousdale, i am his instructor at clark college, and i was attempting to reach him to discuss his current absences and to see if he would like to set up a time for him to make up the test he missed. thank you."




now, i've missed... i think two days out of the quarter from that class. (granted, it's only on tuesdays and thursdays, but still.) i have been the only female he singles out on a regular basis to correct my issues in front of the class, and i have talked to him a couple of times outside of class.. and he doesn't know that i'm a GIRL?

yes, yes, it could be that he is just overwhelmed with a ton of students this quarter, but sheesh.

Re: ...the fick!?
i returned his call, stating clearly who i was and trying to sound as feminine as possible without sounding like a seductress or minnie mouse. he had an awesome voice mail message, too, though i can't remember what it was, specifically.

Aubrey is such a fine fine name. I used to think I would name a daughter Audrey, but Aubrey is even prettier. Not that I will ever have a daughter..
yeah thats a funny message given the circumstances

I know that pre 1975ish, that almost every single Aubrey was a boy, and Professor Trousdale IS 425 years old, so maybe.....?


I had totally forgotten about that fabulous message.

and jesus christ! i have a girl now!
I actually did suggest Aubry but her dads mum died and we honored the dead person by naming her Judy.
Why you goin so far back in time? Sometimes I do that too when i am looking for something. Somewhere in my jernal is the best recipe ever.
It was a fennel and snow pea salad dressed with fresh ginger and lemon juice (i keep going back in time trying to figure out what else went into it)

I know you're a girl :D

And how do you mistake the name Aubrey for a girl?? He might be messing with your MIND. What course is it?

Maybe its weirder to me that the prof. called your cell phone in the first place instead of addressing the issue face to face.

I am not saying anything new here, but I would assume an Aubrey was a woman before I assumed they are a man. I don't think I have met a man named Aubrey. What an idiot!

I've had a teacher like that before, where you can exchange emails and then go talk to him after class, but outside of those interactions he has no clue who you are.

They tend to be jackasses.

He made up for it a year later by allowing my choir class to sing something that he composed, and it was AAAAAMAAAAZING.

Okay, so that wasn't exactly a PERSONAL making up to, but still.
