Hour of the Button Pusher

Up at 5:00 a.m., straight to work, taught class at 8:40 a.m. All classes were canceled by 11:00 a.m. Too much snow. All administrative offices were officially closed up by 2:00 p.m. So why am I still at work? You probably want an answer. (If you don't, well, it's okay to stop reading here.)

One Clear Path

I do have an answer. There's a women's basketball game. (Ha! delirium.) The team from Oklahoma traveled in last night, bussing in just ahead of the snow storm that blitzed us with eight inches of fresh powder since last night. They got refs, so they can play. It's that simple. As for me, well, I can't justify enlisting your pity for working conditions that I've been complicit in creating. Since I'm not neatly staff, not neatly faculty, I'm still at work. Did have time today to tote my camera through the flurries, push the shutter button enough to glean these images. And toiled--with success--over the code for author images in our class weblog for EN106, which I will reveal soon. Maybe this weekend.

FWIW, Sam's comments yesterday have me thinking about the relationship between explicit standards and grading practices in ed-blogging. I'll turn around an entry on that one of these days.
