I seem to have a cold!
At least, an incipient cold. My throat hurts. Also, I woke up in the middle of the night and couldn't get back to sleep for a couple of hours because my furnace was making odd noises, and I feared that it would explode.
It's funny how rational such things seem at 2 am.
Well, oh well. We just closed out the second week of the semester, and so far all is running smoothly. Classes are going well, and prep is shockingly un-time-consuming, and with every semester I become more and more at ease in the classroom. I have some lovely students. I have some grading to do. But I also get to spend the weekend reading Jane Austen, which is just about perfect for a Weekend With A Cold.
And we're getting a pizza for dinner. Perhaps all is not so heu-worthy after all.
