A Scattered Professor

So, here’s the thing–and you better believe it, please:

The professor is completely off schedule again.

See, here’s the deal…

This is dill, see. Like, the dill in pickles. Not the deal of a deal.

This is dill, see. Like, the dill in pickles.

…things have gotten righteously crazy, which is way better than wicked crazy.

Not as cool sounding, but still.

Lots of guitar exams, see.

Okay, in other news…the Patriots got a new TE! (‘Cause I know you’re all Pats fans…)

Also, I saw these two chaps in the same movie:

why-iron-man-needs-to-be-in-marvel-s-2017-spider-man-reboot-335963

Pretty slick, let me tell you.

And, this fellow will be fighting in UFC 200!

As you can tell, I’m a bit scattered right now.

But you’ll understand when you reach my age.

After all, I’m so old, you know.

    I have to go job hunting because my last job croaked, my computer looks like it might be in the process of croaking… yeah, I know how you feel, professor ;-)

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke June 9, 2016 at 17:13

      So…I was going to ask how’ve you been? Pretty tough, I see. Dadblame computers.

      • 3 erinkenobi2893 June 12, 2016 at 00:25

        Yeah. I’m hoping to fix it soon.

      • 4 Professor VJ Duke June 12, 2016 at 14:58

        I’m sure you shall.

      • 5 erinkenobi2893 June 13, 2016 at 03:28

        It’s somewhat fixed, but it’s still cycling something in the background. At least I can use Word now again!

      • 6 Professor VJ Duke June 13, 2016 at 12:44

        Well, that’s definitely a step in the right direction. Must be really vexing.

      • 7 erinkenobi2893 June 13, 2016 at 14:03

        And Microsoft Word is offline again! Ugh!

      • 8 Professor VJ Duke June 14, 2016 at 13:07

        What?! *rampages*

      • 9 erinkenobi2893 June 14, 2016 at 14:56

        It was working on Sunday and now it’s not again! I have to take a turn on the other computer and hope that that one works. Worse still, I was hoping to write a few more short stories as a freelance writer.

      • 10 Professor VJ Duke June 15, 2016 at 14:36

        Dang. It seems it all happens at once, doesn’t it?

      • 11 erinkenobi2893 June 15, 2016 at 16:17

        Indeed. Maybe I can get my dad to help fix it.

      • 12 Professor VJ Duke June 16, 2016 at 14:20

        Yes, he might be able to do the trick. Vexing things

      • 13 erinkenobi2893 June 16, 2016 at 21:10

        Indeed!

  2. 14 John W. Howell June 8, 2016 at 19:55

    You are only as old as you feel. Who cares about the Pats TE?

    • 15 Professor VJ Duke June 9, 2016 at 17:12

      And I feel…older than the pyramids! *mouth drops* You mean you don’t?

      • 16 John W. Howell June 9, 2016 at 17:52

        Ha ha ha. I’m twice your age.(about)

      • 17 Professor VJ Duke June 10, 2016 at 13:31

        I assure you not!

      • 18 John W. Howell June 11, 2016 at 01:01

        If you are 37 or under I am.

      • 19 Professor VJ Duke June 12, 2016 at 14:54

        I’m probably like sixty something.

      • 20 John W. Howell June 13, 2016 at 00:52

        Okay then.

      • 21 Professor VJ Duke June 13, 2016 at 12:41

        Give or take lots of years.

      • 22 John W. Howell June 13, 2016 at 17:05

        Mostly take I’m thinking

      • 23 Professor VJ Duke June 14, 2016 at 13:10

        Hahaha. Maybe!

      • 24 John W. Howell June 14, 2016 at 19:01

  3. 25 Lady Dunamis June 8, 2016 at 17:27

    The pompous Patriots, eh?! Lol! I confess, when I lived in NC and the Panthers played the Patriots, I rooted for the Panthers for kicks and giggles. They seem so…self righteous ya know.

    • 26 Professor VJ Duke June 9, 2016 at 17:10

      Well, the Pats won! Lady, how could you. Come on now. Pats all the way. I shall get you a hat.

      • 27 Lady Dunamis June 9, 2016 at 19:29

        Yeah, I remember. Rats & a heifer! And I shall be a terrible sport and not wear it.

      • 28 Professor VJ Duke June 10, 2016 at 13:38

        Which isn’t fair at all. I’ll water balloon you! (my new attack method)

      • 29 Lady Dunamis June 10, 2016 at 17:53

        If you wet my hair it shall be war! 😂

      • 30 Professor VJ Duke June 12, 2016 at 14:50

        Hahahaha. That always gets the girls. #win

  4. 31 Debbie June 8, 2016 at 15:31

    Best of luck with your exams, Professor — you’ll do just fine, I’m sure! I can totally empathize with the scatter-brained stuff, as I’m a bit that way myself right now. Lucky for us, this too shall pass!

    • 32 Professor VJ Duke June 9, 2016 at 17:04

      Yes, but how long shall it takes? *impatient*

  5. 33 Freakishly Fangirlish June 8, 2016 at 00:47

    How was the movie? I haven’t seen it, but all my friends said it sucked.

    • 34 Professor VJ Duke June 8, 2016 at 13:25

      Really? I loved it to many deaths! You must see it. Who’s your fav superhero?

      • 35 Freakishly Fangirlish June 8, 2016 at 15:34

        PETER QUILL… STAR LOOOORDDDD

      • 36 Professor VJ Duke June 9, 2016 at 17:05

        Wasn’t it just Spiderman not to long ago?

      • 37 Freakishly Fangirlish June 9, 2016 at 19:44

        Oh yeah, but then they got a new actor to play him (whom I hate) so it’s Star Lord now. Also I am obsessed with Parks and Rec and Chris Pratt is in that too.

      • 38 Professor VJ Duke June 10, 2016 at 13:39

        Parks and Rec is so funny! I like the chap with the mustache.

      • 39 Freakishly Fangirlish June 10, 2016 at 18:27

        Ron Swanson!!!

      • 40 Professor VJ Duke June 12, 2016 at 14:50

        Yes!!!

      • 41 Freakishly Fangirlish June 12, 2016 at 18:12

        HE IS DA BOMB!!!! I LOVE HIM SO MUCH!

      • 42 Professor VJ Duke June 13, 2016 at 12:38

        He’s so funny. I think I’ll be him when I grow up.

      • 43 Freakishly Fangirlish June 13, 2016 at 18:09

        I want to be April Ludgate-Dwyer when I grow up. I’m already halfway there!

      • 44 Professor VJ Duke June 14, 2016 at 13:11

        Haha. I think you are! She’s awesome. So, does she eventually marry Andy?

      • 45 Freakishly Fangirlish June 14, 2016 at 18:41

        Yessir

      • 46 Professor VJ Duke June 15, 2016 at 14:41

        Cool. Andy’s the best

  6. 47 Simply Skeptical June 7, 2016 at 22:49

    busy is good. guitars are good. :-)

    • 48 Professor VJ Duke June 8, 2016 at 13:25

      Guitars are best!

      • 49 Simply Skeptical June 8, 2016 at 20:12

        Dear Prof the patriots are cheaters and darn good ones too!

      • 50 Professor VJ Duke June 9, 2016 at 17:12

        Now, now. Don’t you go on believing lies!

  7. 51 InfiniteZip June 7, 2016 at 15:06

    I am patriotic….that should suffice, not Patriot fan….but I like pickles….

    • 52 Professor VJ Duke June 8, 2016 at 13:22

      Have you ever eaten a pickle and watched a pats game?

      • 53 InfiniteZip June 8, 2016 at 13:58

        I ate a pizza and some quesadillas and watched a pats game. Against Buffalo and as I recall we won that particular one😀🍾

      • 54 Professor VJ Duke June 9, 2016 at 17:02

        What? Buffalo won? Oh no, you must be mistaken. Pizza got to your head, see.

      • 55 InfiniteZip June 9, 2016 at 18:49

        Did not, even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in awhile I’m told…..

      • 56 Professor VJ Duke June 10, 2016 at 13:35

        Like the professor does.

      • 57 InfiniteZip June 10, 2016 at 14:10

        smiles….yep :)

      • 58 Professor VJ Duke June 12, 2016 at 14:41

        *roars*

  8. 59 PorterGirl June 7, 2016 at 14:55

    Such a busy Professor, you really must find time for 500 naps (or 501). Good to see the dill making an appearance – all we need now are the pickles. I am sure your guitar will do a great job in the exams! I am sending you much luck and… other things *winks*
    As an honourary Pats fan I am, of course, over the moon at this news. I don’t know who the other fellows are, so will go back to thinking about the dill and pickles.

    • 60 Professor VJ Duke June 8, 2016 at 13:21

      I need a few naps! Maybe even 601? That’d be a good number. Oh yes, reminds me of pickles too. Hey, let’s have a pickle party? How about that? That’d be something, I say. Other things? Like more guitars, for instance!!

      *laughs* That’s okay. You’re learning. What does TE stand for?

      • 61 PorterGirl June 8, 2016 at 13:34

        That sounds like a goodly amount of naps. I’m in the mind for half a nap myself. A pickle party sounds wonderful! I have just the shoes for such a thing. I shall be there – with added pickles.
        Haha – I shall send the blue Strat and the Telecaster for moral support.
        TE? The End? It could be anything. Please enlighten me!

      • 62 Professor VJ Duke June 9, 2016 at 16:57

        Just the shoes? Now, the sudden, I’m curious to the type of shoes, madam.

        Oh yes please! I mightn’t send them back, tho.

        Tight end! You were close, you know.

      • 63 PorterGirl June 10, 2016 at 06:03

        I might wear more than the shoes, depending on the weather. I was thinking that my classic Vans hi-tops would be perfect for a pickle party.
        Well, you can keep the blue Strat but I shall come hunting for the Tele!
        I was close. Tight end sounds very rude *sniggers*

      • 64 Professor VJ Duke June 10, 2016 at 13:44

        A vans hi-top sounds interesting. Of course, I’m not sure what its’ about, tho. Is it green?

        I’ll hide the tele too!

        Haha. Tell Rob Gronkowski that!

      • 65 PorterGirl June 11, 2016 at 12:36

        It’s a tennis shoe of a type, you know. My particular pair are black and white. Very comfy and stylish. I’ll send you a picture.
        I’m not talking to someone who says such rude things!

      • 66 Professor VJ Duke June 12, 2016 at 14:57

        Hahaha. I thought it was top! Yes, you must. I’m picturing gangster shoes now.

        Humph noodles. It’s decent over here, I tell you!

      • 67 PorterGirl June 13, 2016 at 06:18

        They could be gangster-y, certainly. Gangster with a focus on comfort.
        I am obsessed with noodles, the sudden.

      • 68 Professor VJ Duke June 13, 2016 at 12:46

        Noodles! Now, why noodles?

      • 69 PorterGirl June 13, 2016 at 13:21

        They keep appearing in the strange book I am reading. Also a place in the next village makes nice ones and I can’t stop thinking about them. I must be hungry.

      • 70 Professor VJ Duke June 14, 2016 at 13:05

        *sigh* I love noodles. Done what you’ve looked!

      • 71 PorterGirl June 14, 2016 at 13:36

        I love noodles also. I do hope I haven’t made you hungry…

      • 72 Professor VJ Duke June 15, 2016 at 14:34

        Well, it’s early here. We need to invent a breakfast noodle

      • 73 PorterGirl June 15, 2016 at 15:09

        YES. Imagine that. Some sort of bacon and egg noodle dish… *heads to kitchen*

      • 74 Professor VJ Duke June 16, 2016 at 14:17

        Make it up nice and smart, please! Sounds so good.

  9. 75 Heartafire June 7, 2016 at 14:50

    I am scattered as well. I have many questions for you but dare not ask. Dill… did I just fall off the turnip truck? Good luck with the auditions though I doubt you will need luck, that’s just something people say. If you find this in Spam please free me.

    • 76 Professor VJ Duke June 8, 2016 at 13:20

      *laughing* Why would I free you? No, just kidding. You don’t go to spam! Usually, that is. As a matter of fact, I’ve never found you in the spam. Yes, I need all the luck I can get. What sort of questions, madam? Ask away!

      • 77 Heartafire June 8, 2016 at 14:03

        I’m in some spam, probably placed there by the blog owner. :). I am wishing you all the luck in the world. I forgot my questions. Oh, i was wondering if you are across the pond these days. Just wondering.

      • 78 Professor VJ Duke June 9, 2016 at 17:02

        Across the pond? You mean England?

      • 79 Heartafire June 9, 2016 at 17:05

        No, I mean the puddle out back.(there’s that frosted sarcasm, ha!) Yes, I mean over there. I can hardly hear you these days.

      • 80 Professor VJ Duke June 9, 2016 at 17:16

        Must I scream louder?

      • 81 Heartafire June 9, 2016 at 17:17

        we can try that.

      • 82 Professor VJ Duke June 9, 2016 at 17:17

        Maybe I’ll call you. *nods* Save the voice, see.

      • 83 Heartafire June 9, 2016 at 17:19

        nods back…we are cool.

      • 84 Professor VJ Duke June 10, 2016 at 13:28

        Groovy even.

      • 85 Heartafire June 10, 2016 at 14:39

        We fly

      • 86 Professor VJ Duke June 12, 2016 at 14:44

        For Gondor!

      • 87 Heartafire June 12, 2016 at 19:48

        yes!

      • 88 Professor VJ Duke June 13, 2016 at 12:39

        Many humph noodles

      • 89 Heartafire June 13, 2016 at 13:34

        Oh humph noodles. Indeed!

      • 90 Professor VJ Duke June 14, 2016 at 13:06

        I’m in the mood for noodles now that you bring it up

      • 91 Heartafire June 14, 2016 at 13:15

        ramen, yum!

      • 92 Professor VJ Duke June 15, 2016 at 14:31

        Noodles all around!

      • 93 Heartafire June 15, 2016 at 15:45

        Cheers!

      • 94 Professor VJ Duke June 16, 2016 at 14:19

        And one dadblameit

      • 95 Heartafire June 16, 2016 at 14:38

        or two.

      • 96 Professor VJ Duke June 16, 2016 at 14:44

        Three even

      • 97 Heartafire June 16, 2016 at 21:24

        Cheer x 4

      • 98 Professor VJ Duke June 17, 2016 at 14:51

        I’m bad at multiplication, you know

      • 99 Heartafire June 17, 2016 at 15:01

        I am not good with it either, this could be a problem, fortunately after 4 cheers no one cares.

      • 100 Professor VJ Duke June 21, 2016 at 12:57

        And four beers.

      • 101 Heartafire June 21, 2016 at 15:37

        uhm, not big on beer but I’ll make an exception.

      • 102 Professor VJ Duke June 22, 2016 at 20:53

        Me neither, haha

  10. 103 Haylee June 7, 2016 at 14:33

    Never mind the accent, you’ll never make it as a Brit if you can’t spell TEA correctly… ;)
    I hope the exams have gone / are going well but why do you need to take them? I mean, you already seem to be of a pretty high calibre, unless you’re going for 7th level guitar mage or something!
    Now then, the film… which side did you choose? Please consider the answer carefully, although there is only one correct response!

    • 104 Professor VJ Duke June 8, 2016 at 13:17

      Tea! I think I’ve got that one. I love tea. Can I be an honorary Brit?

      They have sorta gone! I was sorta invited to study guitar at a college, can you believe. Gosh. I’m nervous about it. I think I should just retire, don’t you? Yes, retire. That sounds grand.

      Okay, then… I’m trying to guess which one you would’ve chose. But…you’re right, only one correct response. I like the chap that wold’ve won if he didn’t let his emotions get in the way! Ironman. (Plus, he had spiderman on his team, so it’s an automatic decision, see.)

      • 105 Haylee June 8, 2016 at 13:42

        Yessss! You pass the test sir – #TeamTonyStarkForever 💜 (And Spidey was very cool in it too.)
        That’s quite impressive being invited to study, people only give out invites to those that are worthy. But seeing as you go on about being soooo old all the time, I think retirement is way overdue! (You really should market whatever elixir of youth you’re imbibing though…)
        And when you’re bored, twiddling your now redundant, retired fingers, you can have lessons in all things British and we’ll let you in as a guest to take the honorary Brit test – loving tea is only half the battle. Making it well is crucial to survival!

      • 106 Professor VJ Duke June 9, 2016 at 17:00

        *mouth drops* I can’t believe you’re on his side, too! Well done, I say. See? We find common ground on such important things. But…Antman…he was pretty cool, wasn’t he?

        Haha! You’re right. I should retire. What do you mean? I look old…why, just look! *tries to look old* Okay, so, every time I attempt tea, something goes wrong, you know. Either I don’t let it seep long enough, I break the bag, or I make it too bitter. IF that’s even possible. #help

      • 107 Haylee June 9, 2016 at 19:02

        He was very cool, I loved his movie too – we need to bring him and Hawkeye across to the correct team asap!
        Bitterness is entirely possible – bleurgh! I’m pleased to hear you use a bag though, none of this tea leaf malarkey. They’re only good for telling fortunes. I like quite weak tea though, so not leaving it long enough would probably suit me fine. But we’d get you trained up. You best have a teapot!!

      • 108 Professor VJ Duke June 10, 2016 at 13:36

        Yes, yes! Quite right. But Hawkeye. Really. Does he have any powers? Just weird hair, see.

        A teapot? Goodness. Only ladies have those!

      • 109 Haylee June 10, 2016 at 14:10

        Does he have any powers?! Have you seen him with a crossbow?? Anyway, he’s cute (weird hair, pfft!).
        You can get some very masculine teapots I’m sure…

      • 110 Professor VJ Duke June 12, 2016 at 14:42

        Yeah…but he’s not match for spiderman or ironman! Or even professor-man! (if that was a thing) He does have weird hair, I’ll give you that.

        Maybe with Statham on them. Maybe.

      • 111 Haylee June 12, 2016 at 15:38

        Professor-man should definitely be a thing! And correct, he’s no match but I still quite like him.
        Jason Statham has an entire teapot collection I’ll have you know. With flowers on and covered in knitted tea cosies. Fact.*

        *possibly fabricated.

      • 112 Professor VJ Duke June 13, 2016 at 12:37

        You know what, I missed both first avenger movies…so maybe that’s it! I’ll have to watch them. *writes on a large list*

        *laughing lots and lots* I would SO buy that.

  11. 113 FictionFan June 7, 2016 at 14:12

    Guitar exams? I’m sure the guitar will pass with flying colours! Poor Mr Lesnar! He probably thought all that work would make him look good… *shakes head sadly* Well, I was hoping for the next installment of the story today but I’ve heard age makes it hard to concentrate so I forgive you. More or less.

    • 114 Professor VJ Duke June 8, 2016 at 13:15

      Yeah, I thought about just throwing the guitar in by itself. You know, make it panic a bit. It always seems so calm all the time, which isn’t fair, you must admit. *laughs* He’s a beast! Bet he’s so strong…

      I’ll be right up with that. I’ve been so neglectful, I admit.

  12. 115 L. Marie June 7, 2016 at 14:11

    I also saw those two chaps in their movie. Really enjoyed it!
    I can understand that scattered feeling. Life gets busy sometimes. But busyness still means you can enjoy chocolate.

    • 116 Professor VJ Duke June 8, 2016 at 13:14

      Wasn’t it EPIC? Which team were you on?

      And cherries and noodles. Quite right.

  13. 117 Susan P June 7, 2016 at 13:56

    I saw an arm fly by…was that your’s

    • 118 Professor VJ Duke June 8, 2016 at 13:11

      Dang it! I thought I bolted it on better than that.

      • 119 Susan P June 8, 2016 at 13:58
