The Letters of Abelard & Heloise

The Letters of Abelard & Heloise


Starting in the next academic year, the Board of Trustees has made the following change to the core requirements for graduation at Cupid College. We have addded Matchmaking 101: Avoiding Common Mistakes to the mandatory curriculum for Freshman, and will no longer accept a 4 or 5 on the Advanced Placement test in this subject as previous.

The course lays a foundation for our students which prevents common professional errors, such as choosing inappropriate romantic matches for their chosen subjects, after several complaints in recent years of lonely farmers suddenly becoming very much enamored of their livestock and one case of a young woman in Memphis, TN, falling in love with an empty Dorito bag. We hope that requiring an in-depth look at the pitfall of ill-planned matches will address these community concerns.

Transcript for First Three Pages

Do any of these sound familiar?

--Do your parents ask if all you ever think about is members of the opposite sex? (Or the same sex, if that is how you roll?)
--Do you try to set your parents up on blind dates at every opportunity? Including ones when they accuse you of thinking about nothing but dating?
--Are you the member of your group of friends who acts as the go-between to ask cute boys or girls out on dates when they are too shy to do it themselves?
--Do you often spot attractive potential boyfriends and girlfriends for your single friends from across the room? Do you make them aware of these potential romantic interests?
--When you meet an attractive boy or girl, are you eager and excited to discover things you have in common? Even if it is your taste for Swiss cheese or the fact that you have both had paper cuts?

If you answered "YES" to any of these questions, Cupid College may be right for you!

I second this... what an awesome place the world would be.

Man, I wish they had a free clinic.

Hey, they offer financial assistance!

I can't decide if everyone or no one should take these courses. :D

Haha, this is hilarious! Farmers and livestock...oh my chicken pie!

I really want to take "The Letters of Abelard & Heloise." To the point where I'm considering filling out the application.

So do I. I know it's not very funny only because it is AWESOME.

(Deleted comment)

And thank you so much! I wasn't sure how people would take it!

Sign me up for "Soft, Fluffy Kittens" please. Can I take it as an undeclared graduate student?

We do allow a limited number of audits as a non-matriculating student, but you would not get credit for the course.


Especially love the class The Letters of Abelard & Heloise.

This is too effing cute! :)

Aw, thanks! I wasn't sure how many people knew Abelard & Heloise but I heart them.

One of my coworkers just struck out on the 13th try of setting one of our other coworkers up.
This program sounds PERFECT for her!

Excellent! I will send them an informational pamphlet.

D'awwh, your entry is soooo thoroughly awesomesauce with a side of mint. XD

I'm so happy we got to work together!! ♥

Mine is up and I just hope it doesn't drag us down or anything...>>;

You are all linkied and yours is AMAZING. It says I should be Santa Claus!

Wow, I loved this. SOOO creative! I think this is my favorite entry of yours all season so far and that is saying a lot since I like your work:)

I love seeing all the ways you can be creative:)

I needed to laugh today and this helped, thanks!

Aw, thank you so much! Cat had the starting idea and I just worked off of it to come up with something Valentine's themed!


Venus D. Milo said that you too, can win, if you just follow the steps for winners laid out in her newest book, "How to Win Like a Winner."

Do they accept transfer students? As I agonize over accounting, majoring in Romantic Arts and taking a class on Soft, Fluffy Kittens sounds absolutely wonderful.

Yes, they will accept transfer students from accredited universities, but you will be expected to retake several of the core requirements.

Hmm I'll be needing to contact some people for those letters of recommendation about my "skills in the romantic arts" ;)

It is recommended that at least one of your references comes from a teacher or supervisor.
