I'm done!!!! Done with papers, done with grading, done with feeling like I want to make redmarks all over papers that were ... well... pretty awful. I honestly think that my ability to write has declined because I've read so many horrible sentences this semester.
Thank god the class I'm TAing for next semester is upper division.
Now, that complaining done, I'm on my way to the great state of California to visit half the family for early christmas. I've got my Christmas-calm on (helps that I don't have ANYTHING due until January 15... hallelujah!) a mocha beside me (because the airport got an actual espresso bar, and some a crack-book to read if the mood strikes. It's going to be a good day.
It will also be the last time I'm around the internet for the next five days as I return to the land of AOL-dialup. Every year it's like this. Someday I'm going to convince them to get DSL... someday.
So, don't go being crazy and I'll see you all when I get back.
