Seriously?

So, I decided to be all industrious and hard-working today. I started working on my syllabi and planning for classes. I listed all of the class dates and started filling them in with assignments and class work. Then I realized--oh. my. goodness.--these dates start next flipping week! What in the world?! Here I was thinking that I had two more full weeks and that I was really on top of things by starting now. Instead, I suck because I don't even have some of the books that I need to list readings on the syllabus. And you know what else sucks like a Hoover? It's what-the-heck? degrees outside and now I'm going to have to drag my behind all the way to campus as if I'm not still on vacation. This is not cool at all.

Arrrgh! How frustrating! Well, good luck to you during this week of flurry!

And hey, you and I both know that there are profs who don't plan out their whole syllabi by the first week. So there's always the fly-by-the-seat method if need be. ;)

Boy, I wish I could be one of those professors! Or the people who write their conference papers on the plane! But, alas, I would implode in front of the classroom!

Ugh- I HATE it when I enter a timewarp. Happens all the time. Good luck in the frosty behind-drag.
("Frosty" here modifies drag, not behind, just so we're clear).

That's exactly how I'd describe it, evenshine - a timewarp. And oh how I hate it when that happens, too. If often happens to me on a Sunday...waking up thinking that it's Saturday instead. Yuck!

Well at least it's not just me! Today I realized that I have a pediatrician appt. tomorrow,and an all day meetings on Thursday and Friday. So I guess I'm working all weekend, huh? Waaaahhh!
