You Know Quality When You See It


This very nicely printed, glossy catalog came out today at the very place where I teach.

I don't really need to say anything more, do I?

    Nope, it's real. Sadly, sadly real. The printing department "recalled" all the catalogs so they could put stickers across the mistake, but I couldn't bear to part with mine.

    Oh, they also said in their email that "although several people in our department proofread it," the mistake got by them.

    When I showed Scott, he just kept wailing "Nooooooooo. Noooooooo!"

    Nice.

    I hope you never, ever throw that away. It is so symbolic of your entire experience at that place.

    During JL's recent literature lesson, she was to make an "artifact sack." For each lesson (we read Robinson Crusoe), she was to choose what she felt was the most important event in those chapters and then draw a symbol on a 3 x 5 card that would be representative of that event. On the other side of the card, she could write a sentence about it. Each card went into a paper bag, which was her "artifact sack." At the end of the book, she was to make a poster, telling about the book, and include her symbols in the poster.

    This catalog should go into your artifact sack.

    That reminds me... we should get in touch soon. I'd like to (seriously) look into teaching at one of the Comunity Colleges so touted here in Phoenix. You think they need writing instructors?

    I was going to say that the folks responsible for that catalogue need to take more English clases, but I'm humbled by all the grate misspellings of folks who've already comented..

    Grim, I think they're always looking for writing instructors where I work. Email me and I'll fill you in.

    Eggnog. That's deep, man.

    This thread has me seriously questioning my memory. I can't remember from the Rocky and Bullwinkle series whether it was Boris Badenough or Natasha who graduated from Whatsamatta U. Please help. Please - because I think I have a PhD from the same campus, but just can't find the sheepskin in my files.

    JWebb, I had totally forgotten about Whatsamatta U.! That show was so far ahead of its time.

    I don't know which of them graduated from there, but I'm pretty sure the other one got an HVAC degree via correspondence from the ad in the TV Guide.
