Three cheers for a good day

It seems my MP3 player has come back from the dead. If it could turn my water into liquor, I'd found a religion. Essentially, once the battery ran completely out, plugging it in and letting it recharge did the process.

But really the whole term seems to be going well right now. Both of my courses are cruising along and even when - as in today's lectures - things are dry (and there were moments in the last lecture today where the topic could've been used to scour your pans), my students are hanging in and asking good questions. And even though the next month appears to be built to steamroll me - potential candidate interviews, a major departmental event, my third year review due - that the students are hopping seems to be enough right now to pull things through.
I'd still like some movement on my own job front, but I'm prepared to try a little patience at the moment and hope something interesting comes my way (*cough: PARIS!*). That does mean, though, that I'm a little at a loss for blog topics, so suggestions are certainly welcome (I'm also behind on my blog reading, so perhaps there are memes or something that I'll rip off and, at the very least, maybe I'll turn up elsewhere).

Can I tag you before I've actually written my "why I teach X subject"? If so, tagged. You can have fun writing it without revealing your subject. See Tenured Radical a couple posts back for the genesis.

Sounds good to me. I'll give a look later today or tomorrow and try to figure out how to take the topic on.
