Bitchin' Camero Bitchin Camero

I gave back essays today and one student was stamping her feet in frustration --- "oohg, erg, argh, I got a better grade last time! I hate this class! I got a C+!"

Immediately another student called out "I love this class!" They were peer review group members, so she goes over and asked what he did to fix the end of his essay. "What did you get?" she asked.

"A C+."

It was pretty hilarious. At least I have them engaged and involved, right?

And going through the piles of peer reviews, I found one girl had written on her partner's paper, after increasingly enthusiastic comments at the beginning, "This essay is bitchin'!" Seriously? We're bringing that back?


Ok!

I love that you posted this. Bitchin' Camaro. Classic. You know I met my First Love (FL on blog) at a DM show, right? Also, I'm old as hell :)

Man, I love you and Crazy both! My college roommate and I memorized the whole initial dialogue and would break into it at random moments when we were sitting around bored.

Could probably recite most of it to this day.

I blame Ben Folds for the resurgence of the word bitchin'. Have you seen The Sing Off? :D

Heh heh.

I have not seen The Sing Off. But when I went looking for that song, I found this video from the time that I had *no* clue existed!


Have you seen Methodist Coloring Book?
