I was planning to pop in here and tell you all about the lovely weekend I just spent completely and utterly free of grading, about how I was able to lounge around and drink soda and catch up on television and movies and take naps with the dog. Internet friends, how JEALOUS you all would have been.
Unfortunately, the stupid reality of Monday morning has gotten in my way and has effectively killed any residual weekend buzz I had going. A flat bike tire, a forgotten yoga mat, a student waiting for me outside my office before my office hours had even technically started — oh, Monday, cruel mistress.
It’s not so bad, though, is it? Office hours are almost done now and I can soon flee to the gym, a place where no one bothers me except for the imaginary Jillian Michaels sitting on my shoulder.
In other completely unrelated news, I am having some kind of blog identity crisis. I came up with the stupid title “Zemblan Grammar” and my even worse alias (WHAT WAS I THINKING, NO, SERIOUSLY) on a whim late one night and now I have been stuck with them for over five years. Is it time for a change? Maybe so. But what a hassle it will be to change things. I’m not sure if I should move all this content to a new place or just start over. There are costs and benefits either way, and either way there will always be people reading who I wish weren’t and vice versa. What to do, what to do?
