Only three more sleeps until I go to the promised land ... Colorado, home of [livejournal.com profile] aithine. We're gonna go see giraffes (truly an engineering disaster of epic proportions), and Cheyenne Mountain (home of NORAD, Stargate, and, oddly enough, those giraffes), and the Rockie Mountains (yeah, I know, you don't 'go see' the range you're in, but work with me people) and all kindsa fun stuff. Now, all I have to do is survive the next two and one-quarter days of work, the drive to Toronto and a layover in Houston. I can do this, really.

Hmmm, I thought I might have more of import to share here. I was wrong. That is all.

Okay, so, I had company this week. The girls came up from Indiana, Wisconsin and North Carolina. We took the kids to Niagara Falls, and Canada's Wonderland. We laughed and were silly. They got introduced to Tim Horton's and milk in a bag. It was all good.

Then, I wandered in here to look at my flist ... skip back 180?! Jeez people!

Guess I know what I'm doing tonight and tomorrow. Maybe I can write Monday. *g*

The evil, nasty, brain killing essays are graded! They have been packed up and sent away, where I never have to see them again. And there was much rejoicing. To celebrate, I left my house, went shoe shopping, had a HUGE Moolatte (coffee and ice cream, omfg so good) and watched mindless television with the kids.

Life is good! Only ten more papers (philosophy this time, at least they can't relocate whole cities) and sixty exams to grade. I think it scares me that I'm seeing that as an improvement. :)

Wow, maybe I'll even finish those stories tomorrow. *bg*

I swear, I graded too many pitiful essays and I caught the stupid bug. Now I want to speak in sentence fragments, and misspell everything, and I'm thinking I might put Munich in Portugal. (Yes, before you ask, one of my students wrote about the 1972 Olympics in Munich, Portugal). ARGH!

In unrelated news, I gakked this from somewhere ...

YOU, my friend, are 100% Canadian! You are what
Canadians are all about! (and that's about. not
a boot.) You, my friend, are AWESOME!

How Canadian Are You?

Really, is anyone surprised?


Now, if I can just get my brain to cooperate, I'm gonna write something. I think.
