Okay, so it's Papa John's for dinner *again* tonight. I know, I'm killing myself slooooowly.
But I gots a lot on my plate.
Met with the thesis plagiarist today who 1) cried, 2) had a bogus excuse, and 3) finally signed the papers so I could report it to the Dean. I was a cream puff with the sanction and didn't fail the student for the whole paper, but I've made them write the thesis again and given a grade-based sanction.
The next 3 days are crazy busy: faculty meetings, strategy lunches, two talks to attend, classes to teach, grad student precis and biblios to read and grade. Blech.
And, I leave at 6!A!M! on Friday to fly to Dutchmanlandia for the weekend. It's still pissy cold there, joy. But then the very next weekend he will be here for the rest of 2008!!!!!!! JOY!
Best of all, next weekend, we will attend the Def Leppard, Styx, REO Speedwagon concert in Detroit (neither of us live there, so it's safe to say where it is). Oh yeah, I haven't looked forward to a concert this much since New Kids on the Block came to my hometown in '88. I envision myself with teased bangs and my leather jacket screaming "pour some sugar on me...." at the top of my lungs.
TD will be very nonplussed at this tidbit of Americana, but he bought the tickets for us, so he's committed.
