Well... sorry friends if you've been looking for a new post only to be disappointed.
I imagine that this is the one time of year when one can get away with spotty posting.
I also don't exactly kid myself that people wake up all over the world, rush to their computers, and come here.
So I figured it would be okay.
I have just finished my grading for the semester.
Woot! and Yay! all rolled into one.
Now I'll have a short respite from teaching and grading until mid January, though the research and prep work is the same.
I haven't updated my read-a-thon because I have been reading a big, thick book that I won at Susan's blog, George R. R. Martin's A Game of Thrones. I am loving it, but it's not as quick a read as some of the other books I've read lately. It's also got about 50 main characters, and it's told from multiple points of view, so it's taking me a while. I may try to read other books at the same time, so that my read-a-thon doesn't peter out at 6 books...
I will keep you posted. In the mean time, here is a little bit of holiday cheer: my son's interpretation of Santa and the dinosaurs that pull his sleigh.
