As my academic semester comes to a close, I find I must curtail blogging activities for a bit whilst I grade final papers, calculate final grades, entertain out-of-town guests, and prepare for a grand party this coming Saturday in honor of graduating with my Masters in English: Composition (woohoo!).

But for your amusement (and mine, of course) I leave you all with one of my favorite blonde jokes and invite you to share one ( or two or three) of your own as well. I have a thing for blonde jokes, having once been, before my hair became pigmentally challenged, a blonde.

A Blonde Plays Craps

Two bored casino dealers are waiting at the crap table when an extremely attractive and voluptuous blonde woman walks up and bets $20,000 on a single roll of the dice. She says, "I hope you two don't mind, but I feel much luckier when I'm completely nude."

And with that, she strips off every last stitch of clothing she has on, rolls the dice and yells, "Come on, baby, Mama needs new clothes!" As the dice come to a stop she jumps up and down and up and down and up and down and squeals, "I WON, I WON, I WON!"

She hugs each of the dealers and then picks up her winnings and her clothes and quickly departs. The dealers stare at each other dumbfounded.

Finally, one of them asks, "What did she roll?"

The other answers, "I don't know - I thought you were watching."

Congratulations and a great big WOOT on achieving the Masters.

As for the blond jokes, I don't have any, but you could go to How Now Blue Cow for other funnies.

BTW, I particularly liked the one about The Mystery of the Curtan Rods.

LOL - loved this joke. Excellent!

And you've just got a Masters degree? Well, congratulations - really, well done, I hope you're proud of yourself. What subject?

I'll let you know how the industrial action goes. I'm feeling extremely uneasy about it, but think the Unions are right that now is the time to make some kind of stand, as much as is possible, given the extra money which is finally coming into Higher Education in the UK, but which is in danger of being diverted in all the wrong directions. Our students haven't yet been adversely affected - the crunch will come in a few weeks, and I'm just hoping so fervently that it will be settled by then.... cross your fingers for us.

what do you call a smart blonde?

a golden retriever.

why are blonde jokes so short and lame?

so brunettes can remember them.

Well done Bird person.

I shall think of you as I face Mrs Abercromby this evening.
Think of my need for words.
Masters words.

Hope your pile of marking is diminishing. And that you're not.

I'm nearly through my marking (but into induction planning for September - could well do without it!)

Our industrial dispute isn't settled yet... starting to look nasty. Oh dear.
