In the true spirit of this blog's title, "Evolutionary Entertainment," I bring you Part II in an ongoing series on the daily life of Homo professoris. (Here’s Part I)



Hello! Will we be needing the textbook at all this semester? Also, if you do not mind me asking, what type of notebooks do we need?




Welcome to The U,

I have no idea which class you're in, but I can assure you that the textbook will be used often and that any notebook will do nicely.

On a related note, where did you attend high school where you were instructed on which notebook to use but instructed not to read your textbook? I ask because, having two young children, I now need to decide if I should move them, home school them, or forsake them and weep for our nation's future.

PS: A good habit when emailing professors is to address and sign-off your messages. And state which course you're in. And not ask if the textbook is needed or which notebook to use. :)
