The Case of the Missing Thursday

Today was one of those days where you just wonder where it went. Did a little class prep, taught class, ate lunch, went to computer science class, came back to the office and somehow annihilated about three hours doing stupid things like responding to email, looking up data about a grade appeal, making a grading guide for my TAs, and other such things that really shouldn't have taken too long.

In the course of my day, I did encounter some recurring characters. Turns out that Pierce is in my computer science class. In dealing with my new grade appeal, I came across the name of a student from an old grade appeal.

The good thing about being so busy is that it was really, really, really easy to turn down the offer of a part-time job that one of my friends emailed me about. Even when I told the Voice of Un-reason, he was unable to convince me that I should have said yes. No regret whatsoever.

Now that I've eaten and changed into my pajamas, I should work on my computer science homework. No, wait, I mean I should grade papers and prep for class tomorrow (and find the check I need to cash and find my passport so I can renew my frickin' drivers license). Maybe I'll split the difference and work on the computer science homework while pretending to prep for class.
