i think i'm mostly filler
Yeah, you know that nomination
from the other day? winnah!
This is how I envision the conversation went, between my AmNovel prof and the prof who judged the "competition":
Judge: Honey*, no one has written a paper on American Literature this year.
My Prof: Hmm. Well, I have a student that had to write hers early, and it doesn't completely suck.
Judge: Have her submit it.
My Prof: Ok [emails Julie]
[Julie hands in her paper the next day]
Judge: Hey, it has
a thesis statement and it doesn't have
typos! We have a winner!
[English Dept lackey calls Julie, says there will be free food at the reception and wouldn't I like to be there? Julie says "heck yeah" because of the free food.]Did I mention that my AmNovel prof is married to the Prof who judges this prize? No? Oh well...
