DEAR GOD THE PAPER BEAST IS SLAIN! :D :D :D

I also, surprisingly, don't think it's too awful...maybe it's a case of end-of-paper euphoria, but I hope it's at least good enough to earn a decent grade.

Now time to proofread it, throw on some clean clothes, go turn this in, then come back and veg out for a while. :D

Wow, despite having only had five hours of sleep and did not start preparing for my Rhetoric class until like 15 minutes ago, I'm alarmingly cheerful - perky, one might even say - this morning. It's probably the caffeine. XD

Still, though, part of it might just be that it's a good morning. I had a croissant from the library food stall for breakfast that was surprisingly good, and now I'm sitting in my office with energetic music playing on my iPod, finishing the reading I assigned my students and putting together discussion questions. I don't teach until almost 11, so I feel like I've got plenty of time to put together an awesome discussion - and if today's discussion, on prejudice and race, isn't completely awesome, IT WILL NOT BE MY FAULT. (I am mildly worried because one of my better participators is sick and won't be there today, but NEVERTHELESS I WILL SOLDIER ON. Also if they suck at participation today that means they'll get a reading quiz on Thursday which I am going to make hard as fuck to guess at, just to spite them and make sure ONLY those who have done the reading closely will get it right.)

Then, after teaching, I'm going to have delicious pizza for lunch, then come back to my office and try to get some calligraphy practice done (maybe get a start on things to send!) before my Old English reading group at 5.

Wow, in the last like twenty minutes I pounded out a page and a half; yay for finally tackling the close reading part I really wasn't looking forward to! Also, I just got an e-mail from my brother letting me know that we're on for early-mid June for our European vacation, so things will go as originally planned: I will be taking the three-week May class and will, in fact, be able to go to Janie's wedding. Woohoo! :D

Let's Positive Linking, Celebrity Edition!
- Apparently Oprah reads [livejournal.com profile] ohnotheydidnt, whcih makes me like her even more. (However, I could have done without hearing about her Saturday vibrator habits.)
- The Top 101 UK Homosexuals. I'm kind of sad that Simon Amstell didn't make the list. Also holy crap but Derek Jacobi is gay? And Aunt Petunia and Professor Sprout from the Harry Potter movies? And David Starkey, my favoritest Tudor historian EVAR? Also, "(Derek Jacobi) won a scholarship to Cambridge where he met fellow thesp Sir Ian McKellen, who apparently had a crush on Jacobi." GANDALF THE GAY x CLAUDIUS/CADFAEL, WHUT. I'm torn between "hott" and "lolwtf." XD
- HOLY SHIT THE LITTLE GIRL FROM THE WITCH MOUNTAIN MOVIES IS PARIS HILTON'S AUNT? WTF WTF WTFFFFFFFFFF
