Holiday Weekend

I like how we have Labor Day so soon in the fall semester and MLK Day near the beginning of the spring. Would I be happier if we started after Labor Day? Yes, I would. I spent ten years on the quarter system. I love quarters. Hate semesters.

But right now I'm trying to savor my four-day weekend (I don't teach on Tuesdays).

So far it's been mildly productive. I wrote another 3000 words or so of my book. I'm going to send another chapter to my co-author tonight after I write 500 or so more words. I also revised the TOC a bit.

And I went grocery shopping. At the moment I am unable to come up with a clever quip about apples and oranges.
