Saturday morning

Saturday morning, I got up early (ok, like 9:30) and went to a debate over on campus. It's Flinders 40th Anniversary or something and this week/end is returning alumni week/end so there was a debate. One of the Hallies was in it, and I thought it'd kickstart my essay-writing day by getting up early.

Nice thought.

I'd organised to go with Tutor Cindy who was running a bit late what with all the washing and things we have to do when the clothes don't magically appear clean and folded back in our wardrobes. So I went to get ST Heidi who was also coming with us and we'd meet Cindy at the back gate. I knocked on the door and Heidi was clearly expecting Cindy who was, duh, overdue. The look on her face was great. It was like, "How fast can I get this student-with-a-problem out of my room so I can go and have a fun day with the other tutors?" Hehe.

Anyway, so Heidi and Cindy and me and some other tutor went to see the debate, which was mostly boring, especially at ten am. There was a cold breeze but the sea looked soooo nice that we wanted to go swimming anyway. But we didn't.

The topic, for those of you who are interested, was

University, like youth, is wasted on the young.

Feel free to debate amongst yourselves.

    I sincerely hope you supported the "of course that's right" side.
    Obviously both youth and uni should be reserved for the oldies who are too grumpy, forgetful and arthritic to (a) commit any of the follies usually associated with being young, or (b) to actually learn anything, and so won't do the world any further damage by intoducing new ideas.
