One more thing

Here's a way to liven up a week packed with meetings: Have a natural disaster!

(Field Town proper is fine. We had a day without power and two days without Internet--which was kind of freeing, in truth. The bigger town up the road is not okay, and will be dealing with this for quite a while.)

Agh gah gah gah

The car is in the shop (for a $500 repair). The baby is sick (a cold or something equally snotty that makes him cranky). I'm conferring (can I stop saying "conferencing"?) with two classes over the next week and a half. Campus interviews for the search committee I'm on start tomorrow. I'm learning how to hire adjuncts for next semester. I need to meet with four Honors thesis writers and their committees before Thanksgiving. And a committee from the Student Senate would like to meet with me about their concerns and suggestions regarding one of our required composition courses.

Can I just skip the rest of the month?

Starting early

It recently occurred to me that I haven't posted a Bonaventure picture in a while. (Yes, this is an easy-post strategy.)

Here he is: my little scholar...

...and my wee sophisticate.
