Oy. The stack of student research papers is in, the reflection papers are arriving today, and we enter the marathon of reading and grading.
Welcome to my birthday week. (Yes, I have strawberries.)
And I'm still writing. That will now have to alternate with the Grading Marathon.
Also, my end-of-semester student party is this evening. Cinco de Mayo theme* with a little Puerto Rican thrown in. (The Fabulous Teaching Assistant is half Puerto Rican and she is making the beans part of the rice and beans.)
*Note: Cinco de Mayo is NOT Mexican independence day. It is mostly a regional holiday in Mexico, but here in the U.S. has acquired greater status than it has nationally in Mexico. Now you can go look up the rest of the story. I am too swamped, alas, to search for and make links. Ay de mi. Señorita Maya Pavlova, however, is fine, and sitting with white paws folded in prayer position in front of her. Thank Godde for cats.
No, I won't forget the North Carolina Primary tomorrow.
