Tired, But Goofy



I have come to realize that I have finally reached an age where I feel very comfortable being pretty damn eccentric if I so desire.  During the time I have been Chairman of the Department, I find I have also started to even develop a "I don't give a damn" attitude about what most folks think about me or about what I do.  In many ways this has been rather freeing. 

Now, I admit, I have always been a bit on the eccentric side, but now I am actually starting to revel in it.  It is fun.  The kids (students) seem to find it entertaining as well.

Yes, eccentric professors are much appreciated by students. You'll know you've arrived when wags start imitating you and saying your catch phrases.

Reminds me of a book by a professor I read a few times, would still have it but lent it to someone and never got it back.

I think the title was. I AIN'T MUCH BABY BUT I'M ALL I'VE GOT.

Just be yourself, fuck what others think.
