Studious peeps. A comprehensive and well documented look at the study habits and research practices of marshmallow Peeps. "Our observations indicated that it was virtually impossible for Peeps to remove items from the upper shelves of the library stacks." Conclusion: Marshmallow Peeps have no business doing research at the university level.

Now this is peep research. And don't forget the bunnies.

Oh my god - what is it about these little marshmallow critters that makes us all into six-year-olds again? Even the big kids at NASA can't resist putting on a Peeps show. (Found at the The Big List Of

Peeps? In October?! Good Lord, how will we ever make it the five or six months until Easter?!

(The Target store near me had Christmas decorations on their shelves the week after Labor Day... And now this, Peeps, in October...? I'm not drawing any conclusions, I'm just sayin'...)

Didn't you know? Peeps are "Always in season"! Especially the Patriot Peeps...

Current seasonal varieties: spooky cats, scary ghosts, and inexplainable orange heart shaped thing presumed to be a pumpkin (based solely on its decoration).

Here are the spooky cats (looks revolting) and the pumpkin-thing. I'm a fan of the ghosts myself...

Mmmmm, scary. This is my local college I love to hate. Once I helped my father (a teacher) there with some worksheets for a workshop on how to track grades. I had to redo the sheets when his boss informed him that we needed to explicitly explain how to convert percentages to decimals, including a illustration. One would think that moving the decimal place would be a prerequisite for attending college.

Of course, our town also bends over backwards for them, including using public land and funds, and closing a road, to develop an indoor sports center that non-Millikin personnel can't afford to use, and which reverts to Millikin control in a couple of years.

Then there was the uproar (and whining) about the danger to Millikin students crossing some roads, so, once again, public funds were spent to provide special lights and crosswalks across several roads (despite the presence of crosswalks at any applicable corners). Of course, in my purely personal experience, I have yet to see more than, say, 10% of students crossing the appropriate roads actually use the crosswalks...

Okay, I'm bitter...

Your dad is a "teacher" at an University???

Teacher: (n.) One who teaches.

I thought an educator was one who teaches. Or something. I'm confused.

Well, I would probably refer to him as a professor if I considered Millikin an actual college, rather than a place for a bunch of whiny, rich morons to spend money...
