|Almost no grading to do this weekend! Woo hoo!
Time for some slacking!
| The Monk |
You scored 26% Cardinal, 61% Monk, 38% Lady, and 32% Knight!
You live a peaceful, quiet life. Very little danger comes you way and
you live a long time. You are wise and modest, but also stagnant. You
have little comfort, little food and have taken a vow of silence. But
who needs chatter when just sitting in the cloister of your abbey with
The Good Book makes you perfectly content.
| My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender: |
|You scored higher than 25% on Cardinal|
|You scored higher than 86% on Monk|
|You scored higher than 30% on Lady|
|You scored higher than 11% on Knight|

|Few and Far Between
|Alas, my goal of posting more often has been thwarted by my much greater desire to see that my students do well in school. I'll pop in from time to time, but for now, Jelly-Pinched Theatre is not much of a priority.
For an update, I've made it through mid-quarter, and most of my students are doing pretty well. I've finally had to give a couple detentions, and will institute those later this week. I'm trying to come up with properly painful bit of work to give them for the 45 minutes I'll have them, but so far the best I can do is to make them struggle through writing sonnets on topics like silence, respect, and obedience. Not sure how well that'll work, though. We shall see--I'm still learning after all.
I'm currently teaching Gothic America, focusing on Irving, Poe, and Hawthorne, and it's massively fun. Nice having some knowledge about the horror genre that I can impart to my students. And it's certainly more interesting to them than the Transcendentalists--blech!
Yesterday was my birthday, and was happily spent reading rough drafts of essays. Well, not exactly happily, but it could have been worse, I suppose. At least kashi and our friend Joyce were around to keep me company. Otherwise, nothing doing. Just teaching and loving it. 'Tis really not much else to say.
