Well, th' incomin' students be here an' busily gettin' (dis)oriented. We successfully transformed them this mornin' - first into various an' sundry famous swabbies/characters, then into elephants, palm trees, an' bandits. Then we stuffed the'r bellies wi' food an' the'r heads wi' Very Important Details. Somehow, this be actually an exhaustin' task. If thar`s time after th' dean`s dessert reception, I intend on watchin' Gentleman o' fortunes o' th' Caribbean t' celebrate Talk Like a Gentleman o' fortune Tide.
Next high tide': academic advisin' an' faculty introductions. I`ll keep ye posted.
