I was informed by a friend last week of a certain MUN Gazette entry that might interest me, and when I looked up the article, what should I find but a glowing write-up on my favourite professor, Dr. Greenlee, in recognition of his being awarded the Principal's Teaching Award for his incredible teaching skills.

So I read the article, referred a lot of friends to it, and now I'm posting the URL here so that all Greenlee fans can enjoy it, too!!

So, fellow Greenlee fans, enjoy the story, I'm sure you'll all agree with everything in it. And I'd like to thank whoever it was who nominated Dr. Greenlee for that award, because I can't think of anyone who deserves it more than he does!!

Congratulations, Dr. Greenlee!! We all knew you were the greatest, this just makes it official!!

My very first Greenlee Fanclub post!! [30 Mar 2005|01:16am]

Greetings fellow Greenlee fans and welcome to my debut post. I am, of course, a huge Greenlee fan and yes, I'm the nutcase taking three, yes THREE, of his courses this semester. What can I say, he's my favourite professor!! I have to take a lot of history courses, why not take them with him?

While I've been here several times to read the other posts and laugh at the Greenlee quotes, I haven't had the chance to post a few quotes here myself, so I have a couple that I'd like to share now.

First, here's one from earlier this month:

We're sitting in History 3460, and as always, Dr. Greenlee is in the middle of his lecture when he pauses to go write some weird and wonderful term on the board so we can all spell it right. He has one of those great little chalk holders (and it's red, no less; excellent choice of colour!), but of course, it's a little more complicated to use than a regular piece of chalk. As he stands there, struggling to make it work, he talks to it:

"Come on chalk, appear."

Then, "Technology, this is why I don't use it."

Finally, I chime in and say, "Press the button on the end."

To which he replies, "Yeah, that's not a bad idea."

You're welcome, Dr. Greenlee. Glad I could help.


Here's one from St. Patrick's Day:

I'm sitting in the classroom with some friends, waiting for Dr. Greenlee to arrive and start his lecture for History 1101 on Paddy's Day. In the spirit of the occasion, I'm wearing a green t-shirt and dangly shamrock earrings, being my normal odd self. Dr. Greenlee walks in and I'm a little surprised by his lack of green attire; I'd been expecting at least that mint-green shirt he has, or perhaps a tie that partly green, but no, he's wearing a dark suit, white shirt and non-green tie.

Thinking myself smart, I say:
"What, no green today?"

To which my perpetually sharp-witted professor replies:
"What's my name?"

Touché.


And a couple from yesterday (well, the day before):

In History 3460, we're sitting there and Dr. Greenlee begins his lecture, only to be stopped by a short coughing fit, to which he says: "Pardon me, that's disgusting." Maybe those words on their own aren't all that funny, but it's just the way he says them that makes all the difference.


And then in History 2300:

He hands out the final exam question, explaining:

"As promised, the final examination. Take it, fondle it, put it under your pillow, consider it, buy each other a beer and talk about it..." and on he goes.

It is just me, or is it absolutely hilarious to hear this man say "fondle"??

And of course, while he's explaining at some length the rules governing the final paper, I'm sitting anxiously in my seat, desperate to open my can of Pepsi. I never open it while he's talking because it's too damn loud, so I'm waiting for him to pause for a second so I can open it before I start to fidget. Finally, he finishes his explanation and pauses for a second. I seize upon this chance and crack open my Pepsi can.

"Well, Rebecca tells me it's time to start," Dr. Greenlee says with a grin, looking my way as the glorious sound of a Pepsi can opening fills the room.

It's something I do in his classes daily, open my can of Pepsi. So nice to be recognized!!


Well, ladies and gentlemen, that's all I have for tonight, although with three classes with Dr. Greenlee, I'm bound to come back with something new soon. You just never know what this man will say next. And that's why we all love him!!

New quote [22 Mar 2005|04:16am]

Today (well, yesterday) was super_becka's birthday, and she had a bag of hats and those little blowy things you get for parties. We both put a hat on (since she asked if I wanted to wear one with her) and proceeded to taunt each other with the blowy things. Greenlee came in and laughed at us while everyone else was staring, we were making an amusing scene.

Cut to later, Greenlee lecturing:

"Disinterest, altruism, exchanging birthday hats because you love each other...by the way, MY birthday is the 4th of July."


...noted, professor, very much noted *grin*

Earlier this week:

"That's your little...word lesson for the day. You can take it, fondle it, put it under your pillow, take it as a gift from me to you forever."

Teehee, he said fondle XD How do I love this maaaaan?! XD

Well, I've had a horrid day and I want to feel better, so! [25 Feb 2005|02:37pm]

Choice quotes from today's history lesson:

"Now, did I bring your essays...son of a bitch, I didn't. They're still upstairs."

"Once a year I use a visual aid...that was it."

"It's how much you love little furry things as opposed to technological gadgets."

"I stay up til friggin' midnight marking essays, 7 days a week, but I don't work...because I don't use my hands."

So basically, he cursed twice in one class XD kaji_sama and I were highly amused.



Friendly reminder: All posts must be public, because we want to spread the Greenlee love, not keep it for ourselves. ^_^V

Greenlee fun! [02 Feb 2005|03:40am]

*BOL* I get Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day in my email...today's entry is "sinecure". Which, fortunately, I already know the exact definition of thanks to Greenlee explaining it in British History yesterday morning!

But on to the fun quote...daphnedawn heard me typing away right after he said it and she knew what I was doing XD

"This is the last of the cold that will not leave, though hopefully I will be all right. If I am not, don't worry, we have an excellent janitorial staff here. A note: I take a size medium body bag, I prefer something dignified, like black, instead of the party pack colours for...the mass celebrations."

As I told Daphne after class, he's such a dork. But he's a wonderful dork.

Dialogue! [25 Jan 2005|01:32pm]

R: So, what is snuff?
Greenlee: *launches into explanation of snuff* The really good stuff would make you sneeze. *morphs into British accent and bumbling ways* I say old chap, very fine stuff there, blend? What blend?!
Class: *laughter*

And an oldie but a goodie, from last year:
Greenlee: *going on about deism* They believed that the people should not focus on their differences in doctrine, but rather that they all worshipped a divine being, the same one as a matter of fact, just under different names. They preached tolerance in religion.
Me: Shame that never caught on.
Greenlee: Some would argue that Christianity in its original form never really caught on either.
Me: *kasnerk* XD

Today in Early Modern European History, Dr. Greenlee was discussing the Renaissance, and how its art differed from the Middle Ages:

Greenlee: "...and then there was the statue of David, with rippling muscles up to his eardrums. David. Did anyone really look that way? I don't know. Not before Boflex, that's for sure."

He had many, many more horrible jokes. Many of them in reference to the few of us third years who were in Historical Methods with him. Too bad I can't remember them all. He's way to swift. ^^

Yay [18 Jan 2005|01:35am]

I've been saying I'll do this for months, but only now just got around to it. Welcome to the Dr. Greenlee Fan Club! This is for fans of Greenlee, whether they be present students of his or alumni, or anyone, really!

The colour scheme took me a bit, as neon colours don't like to present themselves in hex numbers. It's directly from his fashion: the natty brown blazer he always wears, plus that tie everyone loves, the one with the neon stripes on it.

What goes here:
Any sort of praise you have for Dr. G
Anything funny he says or has said, ever
Anything positive about him

So onward with the Greenlee appreciation!
