Sixty One

... is the number of papers I have graded today. The sad thing is that most of them are just as bad as the first draft because no one paid attention to my comments in the first place.

Y'all might have noticed that under a crushing workload, mandatory Kili training, and the opposite of leniency from my friends regarding my burying myself in work, the blog is suffering. In fact, it is barely existing.

All I can say is there will come a day when I write something substantial again. And there will come a time when I respond to comments and visit all your blogs, too. It just isn't going to be today. Instead, have another picture of me. For no reason. Oh and in this one, I was five.




See you tomorrow?

Wow, you really have been a cute fair-haired thing all your life.

Sorry about the crazy workload. In your honor I now go to bury myself in my school assignment. Hang in there, chickie. (Uh, is "hang in there" an O.K. thing to say to climbing people?)

That is so cute!! 14 is the number of hours I worked today - does that mean I get to take Thursday off in addition to Friday? I am thinking of faking an illness, of the mental breakdown variety.

oh god. that sounds very hard.

i edit a lot of "professionals" writing and i suspect it feels similar. but the volume: i have never reviewed that amount of material in a single day ever!

i send you a virtual masseur with strong hands and glass of something nice.
