As the Hedgetoad mentioned, we had quite the weather pass through here on Thursday. Blogging was made pretty much impossible on Thursday. In a moment which defines the kind of luck I have most of the time, the power returned to my abode just as I was walking out the door to go to work on Friday morning. Lots of students had trouble getting to and from school, although my school was more fortunate than some others---we had power (but no heat). A couple of schools didn't even have that. I had two questions I asked my afternoon classes yesterday. The first was "How many of you were unable to do your homework last night because your power was out?" At least 50% of each class raised their hands. The next question was "How many of you had power but told your morning teachers you didn't so that you were excused from handing in your homework?" A couple of sheepish looking students put up their hands. See? We're onto your little games. :)
Yesterday evening, a friend and I went to see Spamalot. We had both had an exhausting week, but a good dinner took each of us to our happy place and set the stage (so to speak) for a very enjoyable time of things. It did, however, make for a late night---I got home around 12:30. After 20 hours among the living, I was just too darned out of it to even think about blogging.
This weekend will be spent in a continued search to find my grail, also known as Chapter One of my dissertation. A few more paragraphs should put the final touches on the draft and then it's on to Chapter Two. Now that I don't have to grade papers by candlelight, perhaps I can catch up on my schoolwork as well.
I have some more important posts in mind, but they'll have to wait until later. Get out and enjoy your day---find the grail of your own.
