Things Have Progressed

No knitting has happened since Wednesday, when I managed to make one single, solitary flower for the anniversary scarf. On the other hand, sleep happened, grading happened, and one gig got canceled due to snow. I'm okay with that, although the money would have been nice.

Currently in the stack to grade:
  • 9 10-page research papers
  • 2 2- to 3-page compare/contrast papers
  • 30 quizzes
  • 1 very badly written 5-page essay analyzing 2 articles
  • 1 very badly written annotated bibliography of 10 sources
  • 1 very badly written paper on environmental footprints
  • 20 5-page proposal papers dealing with a local environmental issue
  • 20 final exams
  • 30 3-page position papers complaining about the local community college
  • effin' jury duty
  • lesson plans for 2 substitutes during jury duty
  • 4 rock star gigs before the 22nd
  • 2 house guests
On hold:
  • My effin' 40th birthday
  • Xmas
  • finding a zipper for the EZ ribwarmer
  • finding beads for the Vogue anniversary scarf
  • finding buttons to redo a Skiff sweater for a friend
Would you like something pretty to look at?

On the zipper front, the below website looks like it might have something that might work. Warning, the home page plays "New York, New York".

I loved teaching English to 9th and 10th graders. I HATED grading the papers... I'd sit down with you and a cup of coffee and help if I could, I hated it that much. Good luck. Maybe I'll stick my head above the holiday/school/choirs fray long enough to see you before the holidays.
