And see my dreams corrode with rust;
Now all that’s left are fruitless fires
That burn my empty heart to dust.”

I'm going to buy my Art History professor a bag of fancy coffee on the last day of class and give her a big hug

Nothing gets the ladies going like a big bag of free World Market coffee.

Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Nah, I think JamesR is setting up a situation in which he can claim he was assaulted by a woman who wanted to entrap him with babies in order to make a more general point about female aggression, both macro and micro.

I honestly think that would be inappropriate, with all due respect.
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. -The Lord Jesus

The Saviour is made of elements which are distinct from one another yet He is not two Persons. God forbid! For both natures are one by the combination. -St. Gregory Nazianzen

I agree. A quick slap on the rear and a wink is all that is needed in this situation.

Well she is my very first professor, and for that matter, my favorite one and the first one to make a lasting impact on me. That and she's just so cute.

I think the professor/student relationship shouldn't become a weird intimate friendship/confessor thing anyway (although I am a bit of a hypocrite).

James, you should offer to shake her hand. If she wants to hug you, she will. But she's a professor and you shake a professor's hand.

I wonder how many fake female Ashley Madison profiles were created by OC.Net forum members.  I read that Ashley Madison's management had a tough time finding people to generate fake female profiles.

Perhaps you're right, though I still may buy her coffee just because that's how I roll. I've had a lifelong tendency to become very close to my instructors for some reason, for better or for worse.

In which case, you should probably just leave her alone completely.

The main thing I'm getting at is, I guess: Don't be smarmy to any human being. There's nothing worse than looking back and going, "I was smarmy, son."

Anyone here that is a professional graphic artist or designer? If yes, please send me a PM, I have some questions regarding equipment.

To those that are amatuers and have been doing it for the past 30 years or more, please send me a PM.

I know this probably isn't the forum to ask, but I have been surprised in the past...

Found an excellent double-breasted dinner jacket like this one on a market for a mere €5. What a stroke of good luck. It happened to be my size as well. A better fit by far that the jacket of the guy in the picture.
