The Thoughts of a Frumpy Professor

............................................ ............................................ A blog devoted to the ramblings of a small town, middle aged college professor as he experiences life and all its strange variances.

Not a lot to report here today.  Just a few random thoughts:

  • Anvilcloud mentioned his surprise that I *REALLY* like soggy cereal.  It is true, much to the chagrin of my wife.... but, I relish letting my cereal sit in milk for extended periods of time until it is wonderfully soggy.  She is the polar opposite to me... she will not add milk to her cereal until a few nanoseconds before she will consume it.
  • I am still pushing through with exams and courses and grading.  Electronic teaching means you are almost literally glued to the computer.  
  • I felt rather slow and uninspired with my running this morning.  I am not sure why.  But, my interest/focus was not there.  But, strangely enough, I still ran my 6.6 miles with a pace of 8:40 a mile which is well in my normal range.  
  • I have been enjoying re-reading my "Memory" posts.  They bring back to me a tremendous amount of thought and reminiscing of my father.   And the essays also remind me of so many of the finer details of what I so enjoy about pipes and pipe smoking.  The essays also really help me see myself from about 10-12 years ago when I think I first wrote them as well.  
  • It is going to be in the mid-60s (~ 18 C) here temperature-wise today.  I am not sure if I am ready for such tropical temperatures yet.
  • We are making a chickpea and sweet potato crock-pot dish for dinner this evening.  I am looking very forward to the dish and the wonderful Indian spices.

Sue made banana bread. It tastes fine, but it feels too mushy for her palate. I swear, crispy/crunchy is a taste to her. I find it strange.
