Finals Week Day 1

In keeping with Southern Man's tradition of post sequences and since there are no other events on the calendar for a while, Finals Week it is. If nothing else it gives him an excuse to post every day.

Today started with a visit to the chiropractor (Southern Man is down to one visit a week now and yes his back is feeling much better now, thanks) and a trip by the public library for movies and CDs and then to the office to contemplate the horror that is the week's schedule and then sigh and get to work. The next eight hours were consumed by grading and evaluating student projects (by appointment) and writing finals and giving finals and grading finals. But then Southern Man met up with friends for dinner (Chinese buffet) and that was a lot of fun even though for a pack of guys we are extremely boring. And now he is home trying not to think about the vast number of calories consumed at the Chinese buffet and trying to work up enough will-power to continue the cleanup. But he may end up on the futon watching The Two Towers and consuming even more calories in the form of popcorn and beer instead. Yeah, that's the ticket, right there. You...shall not..pass!

And as a special treat for those who choose to emulate Southern Man's choice of entertainment tonight - Disk 1 (extended version), scene selection, chapter 30, and arrow down until you see a gold ring.

why do you teach? i always heard it was a calling (like being a doctor or nurse). is it? if it is a calling why are they so many perverts out there getting it on with middle school boys? were you called to do what you do?

The Two Towers--cool!
I also have the 4 hour versions of each of the 3 LOTR movies. Several years ago, I discovered a friend had never seen them, and so she and I had a 12 hour LOTR festival in my living room. Great fun!

I got into teaching quite by accident; my ABD year I filled in for a professor on sabbatical, and liked it.
