Vim & Vinegar



I feel quite refreshed today.  In answer to austere's question, my blood work is actually good.  I was writing yesterday about being tired because with the crazy, hectic abbreviated Spring schedule I have, Tuesday's are especially long and challenging.  I start at 8am and end at 10 pm with only two 15 minute breaks all day.  And, for me, 14 hours of "professoring" and talking loud so all the students can hear me is not my normal teaching schedule.... so I was feeling pretty exhausted.  Fortunately, other days of the week, while hectic, do not approach the length of the teaching on Tuesdays.  And, soon, the Spring schedule will be over and I will be off for the Summer! 

I am looking forward to a conference I will be attending in about two and a half weeks.  It should be a grand adventure filled with wonderful sites to see and good food!  I just have to get my research talk in order before hand.

TWO fifteen-minute breaks!
aghast.

All the best with the paper, boss.

I'll assume that they pay you damn good for all those hours.

Going camping and fishing this summer?
