Variations on a Theme

  1. Even with the radiator swaddled in insulation, my office is still hot. Grrr.

  2. The budget situation is so dire that I can't even joke about layoffs leading to vacancies in better offices.

  3. Worked a bit on a project that I had promised to work on. Need to start writing things up instead of filling pages with cryptic notes that no one but me can understand.

  4. Emailed back a bunch of clueless freshmen. I truly suspect that the reason that they failed math is because they can't read.

  5. Emailed with a calculus student of mine who had a B+ and wants an A-. Student's grade is much closer to a B than to an A-.

  6. Mostly finished my xmas shopping. This is aided by the fact that I'm only buying gifts for five people: my parents, my brother and his wife, and my aunt.

  7. Went to Target to buy some stuff I need for my office (hooks for my coat, bins for my shelves, etc.).
