    One year, my 4 year old DD on Christmas Eve and then Christmas Day wanted to know when we could go home, cause Santa was coming. I kinda felt bad for her. We had just gotten down to Disney on the 22 and I think we were staying to like the 8th of January. We were in freak'n Disney for a long long vacation and all she wanted to do is go home. My folks were down with us for the first week, I almost sent her home with them but she snapped out of it. Poor 4 year old, she remembers it as the Christmas she had to wait for Santa.
    Aww, that's cute. I think I knew it was my parents from about the age of 8. Maybe earlier...I'm not entirely sure.

    Cancelling on my SIL just wasn't an option, especially not so close to Christmas. She has had a rough year,so it cancelling was something I just couldn't do to her. DH had estimated $1200 for petrol, and then realised he had under estimated by just under a $1000. So, the money we had put aside for petrol, paid for return airfares to Townsville for the both of us. Happy about that.

    We will be away for 3 weeks, which will be lovely. The day we leave it will be 104 at home, so happy we will be missing that!!

    My mom and dad toke my brother, his girlfriend and I out to dinner at Brasa today ( I am not sure if it is a just Cleveland thing or if it is in other cities). Good golly so much food.

    It is a Brazilian bbq. Tonight we had a total of 13 different meats come to our table. My favorite was the pork ribs, flank steak and pork sausage. Everything was so good.

    That sounds like fun! Love good food.

    We have a chain here Texas de Brazil. Sounds very similar. They start with the less expensive meats, still good but I hold out for the good ones now to come around

If the student did get help writing the story, while not the assignment, it isn't a lot different from most high school and college students that have others review their papers and critic it. Student A might have got more out of the assignment with help than if they just left it be as originally written. I'd let it go given student 2 is known not to be trustworthy. So not worth the headache to all involved, it could get dicey.
    Not sure why you think I am being spiteful in this. Turns out the untrustworthy student wasn't the one who wrote the note- that student wrote it because she had to go to work and I was speaking with another professor. Additionally another trustworthy student has come forward with the same information.

    Dean of students told me to confront in an email where I was very specific as to what examples from the story were questionable and how it corresponded to information we dealt with all semester. Also, it is fine to get help from others and critic- never said it wasn't--- but when it goes against everything we talked about all semester, then they didn't get much from the class now did they?

    I forget that sometimes you are very anti-teacher. I was asking to see about what people would do and think but I guarantee I won't be asking again.

    Getting a free pass on Plagiarism isn't right. I always make sure I am doing it for the right purpose and not out of spite.

    They have Texas de Brazil in Orlando. We went to it one year.

    My dad went to Brazil about 7 years ago for work and he ate like that every night. He wishes that he can go back all the time. He said that these places are as common as McDonalds here.
