Last night was the first night of the musical theater writing class I teach at NYU. All of my clothes were in the hamper, so I had to throw together an outfit at the last minute from whatever I could find; I ended up making very felicitous choices, and I looked really good.

After class, I got to E.S.’s apartment and we had the following conversation.

E.S.: You’re totally the hot professor.
Faustus: I do look good in this outfit, don’t I?
E.S.: All the girls probably loved you. And the boys loved you even more.
Faustus: There’s one girl in the class. Everybody else is a boy.
E.S.: I absolutely forbid you to teach this class. You have to drop it.
Faustus: It’s okay. The boys are more your type than mine anyway.
E.S.: What, no tall blond Australians?
Faustus: If there were, do you really think I’d be here right now?

    So all I need to do is dye my hair blonde. I’ve got the other two things covered already. Although actually living in Australia and not being enrolled in your class at NYU (what am I doing with my life?) might actually preclude us hooking up…

    Ah yes. In which we see exactly why E.S. and Dr. Faustus are a perfect match.

    (You like that wretched accent??)

    Curse you, Faustus. I now have an earworm of “Hot for Teacher” in an Australian accent.

    Your profession of fidelity is touching. Thanks for sharing it! 😉

    I’m so jealous….

    Do share photos of your felicitous choices so that your readers may enjoy gratuitous lusting.

    Well, you and I both have the same taste in men. I like those australians so much it is my sexual fantasy to actually go there and have them ravish me. I’m saving up to go there for a whole month. Probably next summer! It would be fun to have someone with me. What do you say?

    E.S…please don’t hate me!

    When you start saying deliciously foul stuff like that to each other, it’s a real relationship. I think you’re going to have to rename your blog.

    The ozzies are lovely, but I find I’ve a new appreciation of the Scottish. Too much “Monarch of the Glen” from my BBC America Tivo?

    I’m curious to know, what exactly did you end up wearing?

    I’ve been reading your blogs and really like your writing style. This one caught my eye due to the teaching at NYU comment. I am an aspiring writer and spent a summer taking classes at NYU–one being a creative writing course. May I ask…what route did you take to break into writing…degree, etc. If you don’t mind me asking, that is

    Hey — easy with teh “wretched” accent comment 🙂 I’ve been told to keep mine as much as I can — which is rather difficult when you live in Texas.

    Oh, aussie men love ravishing the American boys 🙂
