Midterms Make Me Boring

I have nothing insightful to say today.

I figured I'd be honest, partially because that's a nice thing to do and partially because I don't have the energy to fake it. You teachers out there know that it's MIDTERM season, and I have exams and projects out the ears to grade (the upside is I don't have to wear earrings... exams-out-the-ears work as accessories).

So I've spent hours this week trying to get everything done, but it leaked into my weekend in a big way. I do have two assistants, though.

Say hello to Bandit and Maddie, who have helpfully shed all over my textbooks, exams, and pants.

Meanwhile, my streaming audio has taught me several things about the 1950s and 60s:
  1. People were MEAN back then! One song was about some guy laughing when he left his girlfriend crying... only he didn't because he didn't have the backbone.
  2. Elvis has been gone for decades, but he can still make me tear up. "I Can't Help Falling In Love"... that dead jerk.
  3. Andy Kim was underrated. Baby, I love you, too. C'mon, baby, n'n'n'n'n'n'nah...
I feel myself longing for a brain-dead day in front of a television.

What are you doing with Laura's cats?? And when I hear that song by Elvis, I always think back to the stupid Latin version dad made us listen to. Ugh.
