OED DEFINITION: RHUBARB - 4. a. The word ‘rhubarb’ as repeated by actors to give the impression of murmurous hubbub or conversation. 4. d. slang. Nonsense, worthless stuff.
The picture says it all...
Although there hasn't been a speeding train causing the light at the end of the tunnel, there have been some speedbumps on the road, to sort-of mix my metaphors. A colleague and former teacher of mine (History of Astronomy) passed away on the 2nd. He had been ill for several years with Parkinson's so it wasn't a shock, and was a release for him from what he's been having to live with. Getting photos together to take to the funeral home and then going to the memorial mass was pretty stressful. Work has been busy and somewhere in all of this I'm supposed to be studying for the last exam in my Art History class. Thankfully that last part will be done one way or the other by noon tomorrow.
Boy am I ready for this week to be over and done with!
