"I am playing with myself,
I am playing with the world's soul,
I am the dialogue between myself and el espiritu del mundo.
I change myself, I change the world."

Poor death.

I wonder will the Matron be comforted or saddened to know that her students are not the only ones who come up with thesis statements such as this?

No way. Really?

Oh they tried. :)

I'd say death deserves it.

So by the same token would, my eating half a pizza... be detrimental to thin?

The endeavor of reading sentences like that to raise my consciousness of the thought processes of students may be detrimental to the health of my brain.

Hey, Professor! You should come over to my new teaching blog. Tell me what you think....

Wow - and just consider: this is one who was accepted into college.
Sweet squeaking Jesus - I'm, I'm just floored.

Yes, this may be one up on the Matron's students...

Well death is skinny enough but I can see why it might have some body image issues...

I loved reading your interview at Motherscribe. Thank you for sharing yourself. Your definition of feminism has given me much to think about.

I really liked your interview--especially the part about the greatest failure of the women's movement.
