Mine's charcoal-colored, but it's similar.

Today my brother indicated that he didn’t think I knew my way around a car. The inside of a car. Oh dear.

Muggle Quidditch

Snitch=/=person

I learned today that there is an adaptation of Quidditch made for ground play among muggles. Check it out here. This is way too entertaining to skip. Go about three-quarters of the way down the page and read the heading “Muggle Quidditch”. Here’s an excerpt:

While the Snitch is a magical object within the canon of the Harry Potter novels, in Muggle Quidditch the Snitch is most often a sort of neutral player, usually dressed in all yellow. The Snitch, after release, is usually allowed to roam an area beyond the playing field. When played on a college campus the range is often the entire campus.

This person apparently dresses entirely in yellow and does anything they can to avoid being caught by the Seekers. OMG, this is, like, the best!

Correcting a professor

Don't hurt me!

Don't hurt me!

Apparently it is okay to correct a professor you’ve never met. I found a mistake in a professor’s vita, and I wasn’t sure if I should tell him. My other professors said that they would want to know if it was theirs, and I said yes, I would too, but I’m not sure if I would want it to be an upstart grad student to be the one to point out my error. But oh well, I guess it’s okay.

Edit: Here’s the e-mail response I got: “Jayne, that is indeed a typo. I’m impressed both that you found it and that you were actually looking at my vita! Thanks for letting me know. Let’s chat about your research interests sometime soon. See you in class tonight.” I win!
