I attended a tutorial the other evening for my OU course on t'Humanities. This was a discussion on Paul Cezanne and the Impressionists and modernism in general. Very enjoyable and enlightening. For the most part, people talked sensibly and perceptively about the subject and as always happens in a tutorial group I gained comfort from finding most of my colleagues are almost as in the dark as I am. However, there were three heinous occurrences of bulls**it cliches being used during the session:
* Pushing The Envelope
* Quantum Leap
* Keeping It Real
Thankfully, nobody uttered the phrase paradigm shift otherwise there might have been bloodshed. But vigilance remains our watchword.
