Miss Information has another bad group project experience...or does she?

A couple of weeks ago Miss Information had another group presentation. It was going to be great. She had the material down pat. She was going to be charming and funny. She brought some ironically lame drawings to hold up. There were actual jokes! She couldn't wait.

Her part was at the end of the presentation. Prior to this the professor got excited and interrupted to discuss at length the negative aspects of Open Access Publishing. Unfortunately this was Miss Information's topic. Fortunately, she had missed every single one of the very relevant points the professor brought up. Damn. Well, at least there was no duplication.

When it was time for her presentation things really went downhill. She didn't bring water so her voice was cracking like Peter Brady's in that special singing episode of the Brady Bunch. No one so much as smirked at the lame drawings. No one laughed at her jokes. The whole thing was a big stupid disaster and she has spent the past couple of weeks avoiding the rest of the group out of embarrassment.

The marks were posted online and it was ok. The professor wrote out comments and put them in little envelopes like love letters. Miss Information didn't look at the one for her group. Today one of the group members waved the envelope in her face.

"You really should read this," she said. "He loved your part."

Well presented he said. Engaging he said.

Miss Information just can't figure this place out.

Maybe he was a fan of The Brady Bunch and you brought back happy memories? Did you sing "Time to Change?" I bet you would've gotten bonus points.

Have you thought about making your blog into a book?
