The Three Heads
I'm still playing with the links- if you want yours taken down, or put up for that matter, please email me, and I will be happy to oblige. And now on to your regularly scheduled programming.
My cell and molecular biology class is team taught by three female professors. Dr. Connolly is the one whose name is on all the transcripts for the class and posts everything on the Internet. Dr. Kriezek is small and drives us nuts. In class she can't reach high on the board and has to go down low, where the podium blocks what she's writing. Dr.Vance is the tallest and my personal favorite, since I had her for Biology 101 my first semseter. Normally, one of them teaches and the others prowl around in the back while she does. Yesterday's study session was the first time we saw all three of them in action together.
I walked in a bit late since I had dumped 32 ounces of orange soda on myself and had to run back to the dorm to change. The study session was in full swing and Dr. Kriezek was giving the answers to the practice exam. The others kept chiming in. They had an interesting arrangement- Dr. Kriezek was on the far left, with Dr. Vance in the middle and Dr. Connolly nearest me. They were all scribbling on the board and talking. Then Dr. Kriezek finished going over the practice exam and asked if there were any questions. One girl asked what to do if they didn't have PowerPoint and couldn't see the notes on the website. Dr. Kriezek said she could go to the library. I volunteered that there was a viewer you could download. SNAP! Three heads simultaneously turned to look at me. I then lamely added, "But I don't remember where you can get it." SNAP! Three heads turned back to the girl as Dr. Kriezek said, "Well apparently you can get a viewer for it." I then decided to add, "I got it from a chemistry website." SNAP! The three heads are looking at me again. "But it is free." SNAP! Three heads back on the poor girl who's regretting she asked. Dr. Kriezek says, "OK, so you might want to google that and find out how to download it. Or you can go to the library." No more snapping. Finally.
The test turned out to be just as interesting as the study session. Two of my friends thought they were going to be late for it and were running. I stayed behind and calmly walked in my pajamas. Unfortunately, this caused me to miss the next scene. As you entered the test, Dr. Kriezek was handing out the exams and a male T.A. handed out the answer sheets and told you where to sit. Unfortunately, Ashley missed the second step of this process, forcing the hapless T.A. to yell out, "Purple shirt. Lavender shirt! PERIWINKLE!" Ashley walks on, oblivious to Nicole going, "Ashley. Ashley! ASHLEY!" Finally, the T.A. caught her attention and vaguely guided her to a seat, minus an answer sheet. Once seated, Ashley naturally wonders, "Where's my answer sheet?" Good question.
I assume in the future the exams will be less, um, entertaining. One of the three versions had true and false reversed (mine, naturally.) I don't know how well I did, but I'm sure it was much better after the two burly guys on either side of me left and I was able to actually think about the test and not my serious lack of personal space. Now, what can The Three Heads come up with to remedy that?
