Off and Away, Tra La

It'll be a long day, oof. Here we go. What am I doing?
  • Teaching 4 classes (and showing a movie clip in 3 of them, which will INEVITABLY result in technological failure and humiliation, so I'm bracing myself for that)
  • Holding 1 office hour (which no one will attend, so that's okay)
  • Escorting--along with two other professors--21 undergrads to a conference a couple of hours north of here, not to return until tomorrow
  • Beginning to look through applications for the search committee that I'm on--
--for yes! I'm on a search committee. That was a pretty quick hop to the other side of the table, wasn't it? I'm looking forward to it, actually. In my wide-eyed naivete, I think that it'll be interesting.

But this conference dealio is the weekend's big thing. Although I know and like a lot of the students who are attending, and the other profs and I have plans for a private wine and cheese party in our hotel room tonight (i.e. no students), I wouldn't strongly object if I could just come home at the end of the day and chill instead. Oh Well.

Sounds like fun! Hope you have a good time!

And it *is* amazing how quickly you become search committee fodder, isn't it??
