I’m not proud of it, but I’m phoning it in today. Tuesdays and Wednesday are proving tricky this semester because they’re such long days at work. If I can’t manage to prepare a post the night before, then I have to sort things out after getting home at night.
I’ve got a few rolls of film that are done but not developed yet, and which can’t be scanned until Friday. That means that we’re doing digital this week!

I made the horrible mistake of adding up the pages of all the assignments I have graded/will grade this semester. The answer is that I’ll have easily read 1,000 pages by the time I can finally collapse in front of mind-numbingly bad television for three solid days, just to give the brain cells a chance to recover.
If only I had been better at and more interested in math. I’m far too envious of their Scantron tests.
