RBOC: Finals Week

Madness and chaos abound. The Seniors don't know whether to run amok or back to their dorms in fear. And I'm too incoherent for anything like paragraphs, so...
  • Mother's Day continues to bedevil me - the gift bought for Mom #2 well in advance online to be shipped and received has just gone up in smoke with a "oh, sorry, we don't have this in stock after all" e-mail. If I don't find something good tomorrow, it won't be pretty....
  • an 8 a.m. final? Seriously? If 8 a.m. was honestly an option for me, don't you think I'd have a job that paid better?
  • you know it's been a hell of a term when you find yourself thinking "Grading 42 papers in the next three days seems like a vacation."
  • stopped by the Dean to congratulate me as it's been decided various things I've done have pushed the department's freshmen enrollment up. It's anecdotal, but I'll take it.
  • sent an e-mail to the graduating seniors to facilitate some end-of-the-line things and made at least one student cry (in a good way)
  • flickers of hope for the summer course - cross your fingers, as I'd like the pittance it pays
And so, once more unto the breach...

I've been having way too much fun with Photoshop lately. I'm not sure whether I'm more proud of the Charlie Brown Act of Cannibalism or this one...

I love that picture. And I love the idea of practical jokes about pregnancy.
