Good things

  • Being done grading all the papers from my survey classes and 1/3 of the papers from my comp class.
  • Having my survey students work through some really challenging new material in class today, with really good results.
  • Titillating said survey students by getting them into the naughty bits of a work they'd thought was pretty straightlaced. There's just nothing better than cocking an eyebrow and saying, "and did the ground move for you?" before a roomfull of youngsters--and then encouraging them to let their dirty minds run riot as they read the rest of the poem.
  • Watching a sweet Disney fairy tale with my comp class.
  • Having a kick-ass keynote talk all but sewn up.
  • Starting to get follow-up requests from departments with job openings. Booyah!

(What Disney movie was it? Or is that info too identifying?)

RLB--B&B. Which, believe it or not, I'd never seen except as background at my younger cousins' homes, back in the day. Loved it!

echoing B* (I mean, really. That was EXACTLY what I was going to write!)

You mean back in the day before the father of said cousins married someone younger than you?

Yeah, I think that's the only time I've seen that movie, too.
