And now to grade those last few papers for today’s class and otherwise prepare for the day and for tomorrow (Terrible Tuesday).  Once again, the Snork Maiden will probably wake up to find me grading at the dining-room table.  (I realize that something is out of whack when, five days out of seven, I greet the dawn while I am grading at the dining-room table.)
