Sang Springsteen for extremely ungrateful audience. Earned money. Lost mittens. Attended Written Proficency lecture, and was bored and left feeling somewhat aghast. Bought compendium for written proficency class. Lost fingers one by one on the way home, due to lack of mittens. Had chicken soup. Will now try to contact CSN to get my money.
Conclusion: The more elaborately a professor has designed her PowerPoint slides for a lecture, the less substantial her lecture will be.
