Student Readers: A Warning

I welcome students readers to this blog. However, be aware that, although I do not use anyone's actual name, the descriptions of behaviors and conversations are not disguised. This is a space in which I may rant, vent, and otherwise express responses that I would do my best to mask or at least tone down in professional interactions with students. This is my personal, gloves off, no holds barred, direct from the gut expression of what it feels like to do my job. If you think you might be hurt or offended or upset by that, read no further. The person I'm ranting about could be you.

Hi! And you are...?

My readership has suddenly blossomed, which is a lovely development--but I don't know who is reading the blog, how you found it, and why you find it interesting. I'd love to hear from you! Please feel free to use the "comment" box at the end of any particular post to let me know what brought you to this page--and what keeps you coming back for more (if you do).

Not you, Barry. You already told me--and thanks!

A non-post post

Some of my near and dear use my blog posts as a way of checking to be sure I'm not in a ditch somewhere or otherwise in a dire situation. The only dire situation I'm in is the need to grade essays. I have no earthly clue what happened to all the time I thought I had today, but I'm going to be here until god knows when getting things marked. So, for tonight, this is as much of a post as I'm going to be able to manage. I'm "upright and ambulatory," as my father would have said, and I think I'm at least reasonably compos mentis ... but now I have to reapply my nose to the proverbial grindstone.

  1. Moi aussi -- ambulatory but not always upright -- plus procrastinating re papers. No words of wisdom from here now -- unless it's that we all need sustenance and hope as we shoulder many a load -- oh, and my tremendous gratitude to you for giving us this daily blog (and forgiving us our own writing debts...). Good luck -- and may DT be delegitinated...and may we all tango in celebration . B
