A different kind of grading jail...

It's June and I'm not on the quarter system (that's a shout-out to you, Sisyphus!) - so, why am I still grading? Graduate papers. It's not grading per se - all the grades are in. However, I'm now commenting on their papers so that I can return them. I put this off until the end of May because of the article revisions I was working on, but now I need to get these done so I can begin my Summer Of Work and Toil and Productivity!

The great thing about undergraduate papers? They never want them back.

So, that's pretty much what's going on in this neck of the woods. My friend had her baby this last Sunday and I went to see her yesterday and brought Thai food take-out to the weary parents. The little sprog was all red, but very beautiful.

Ooo! Ooo! And I've found the pendant light fixture that will one day hang above TD's and my dining room table! Voila:

Our dining room set is basic dark wood table with matching chairs that have a chocolate colored upholstery.
