they came in very handy last night as I had two 12,000-word edits; nominally four hours' work, they only took me six. I've stopped trying to comprehend what is being written about and only strictly correct grammar. If I cannot make sense of a sentence I tell them that I don't know what they are trying to say. doing these long ones consecutively makes me appreciate the short ones more but overall I'm getting very tired of doing this. I suppose teaching might be a welcome switch, but I'm not absolutely sure even of that.
I must eat here in a minute and then go over to the Art Institute to pick up desk copies of my textbooks. I need to sleep, and maybe I should sleep first, but I don't know what time the admin assistant for our department goes home and I bet it is less than 8 hours from now. so I'll go over there and then collapse back here.
if I can get myself to take my headphones off.
