Shiny Teaching Carnival!

20 December, 2006

Shiny Teaching Carnival and Carnivalesque

While I was in grading jail, meg over at xoom posted a Shiny! New! Teaching! Carnival!. Yay for something to do after Christmas cards!

Update!! How could I have forgotten that mj at scribblingwoman has also posted the most recent Early Modern Carnivalesque?? Bad blogger, that’s me!

In other news, over break, I have to:

  • Put in requests for conference money
  • buy Christmas gifts for family
  • send a couple of Christmas gifts
  • Entirely revamp my syllabi, because some of the things I’ve done for years do not work at SLAC
  • turn said requests and syllabi in before jetting off to fabulous city in January (since I get back the Saturday night before the term starts)
  • write another book review (but the last one of the year and one that relates to my research)
  • make substantial progress on my K’zoo paper
  • set up Blackboard classrooms for three courses
  • prep two courses, as I have not taught them in this format before and have never used these books
  • read a friend’s MS
  • with luck, turn my campus office into a homier place — at the moment, it is not gemütlich

Wish me luck, all!

    Lordy, I must be tired not to have noticed that! And now, I’m thinking of tattoos …

    If you’re going to get a tatoo of your address, you had better get a P.O. Box, in case you move.(snort!)

    Not the kind of tattoo I was thinking about. And really, I’m just too chicken for tattoos.
