sandy comes home today so in a minute I will get off my ass and start cleaning. I will begin with the animals who need clean cages--most of them are fine but a couple are beginning to develop a bouquet and then I will sweep the hallway and stairs and then do the kitchen.
after that I need to finish this piece for the anthology that expanding_x_man turned me onto, the deadline for which is tomorrow. I haven't found a theme yet which is very much like me but I'm not sure how perverse they actually want the prose itself to be. well if they don't like it I will move on. next year after the dissertation is in and I'm a doctor and everything I can spend some time and effort getting the real life's work published. right now there are other things I have to do.
I guess I'll finish the grading tomorrow. I just have a few papers left--the ones I found yesterday--plus there are two more that should arrive in my email any time now. everything else is finished: participation grades, presentation grades etc. I could probably guess the quality of each paper before I read it but it's good still to write comments that actually pertain.
I should sit too but maybe I will do that after cleaning. sitting in a clean house is infinitely more enlightening than sitting in a dirty one.
