Great quotes from rhetoric professors

"When you go home and eat hot soup instead of reading a poem by John Donne, isn't that practical?"

So what are you up to these days? Did you enter a Ph.D. program?

No, right now I'm in a masters program in professional writing at Carnegie Mellon University. Thinking about the doctorate, but not right away, certainly. This is my last semester, and don't ASK what I'm doing after that, because I am entirely without a clue.

So what about you? I realize that I know nothing about you except that you're from Buffalo, and I may have made that part up.

Well, I'm at Stanford for a year studying mathematics (mostly). After that, damned if I know. I actually am from around Albany, NY, but I was at Cornell for a long time, in western New York, so that might be where you got the Buffalo association. I'd also much rather be there than here right now, as there is no autumn to speak of in Palo Alto.

I'll be the judge of who is and is not from Buffalo around here, thank you very much!

So what happened with the French studies? Did you get some kind of degree in that, and then go into professional writing, or was that just a kind of detour?

You could call it a detour. I never really meant to do much with it, in a professional sense. Anyway, I felt like I'd learned about all I was going to learn, minus really drastic measures.
