    Depends how close you are to him/her. If you are distant, its pretty weird, and screams "Im sucking up to you."

    I gave both my professors this summer an apple on day 1. I was referred to as that joker karinen after that... I dont think they realized that it was a wax apple...

    No that's crossing boundaries, don't do it. Used to work with a guy who kept sucking up, so we started giving gifts in his name. Cafetaria-cake with a note 'for my highly appreciated boss'. Boss figured out it was me pretty fast but untill he did the look on his face was priceless

    My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.

    People employed in academia prefer gifts in nice envelopes. Just plain banknotes, no recognisable marks of any kind.

    Unless you are a girl.
