Well, I don’t know if anyone has noticed, but I’ve had an awful time of keeping my own Blog schedule over the last few weeks, especially on the weekends. After not missing a post deadline for 18 months, I seem to have hit some kind of wall and can’t make it through a week with all of them on time.
Truth be told, I had an idea that this was coming, which was behind the call in my FDW presentation for decentralizing things a bit (and you can see how that turned out), but even then I didn’t quite anticipate some of what the last few weeks have had for me–surprise projects, various illnesses, unexpected responsibilities of various sorts, dead people, etc. I’m not complaining, I’m just sayin’, is all. Halfway through the term, I feel like I’ve been underwater for the last four weeks or so and not quite able to keep up with anything; but that, as the Chairman of the Board sometimes said, is life. I’m hopeful that in the second half of the term, I’ll have a somewhat different feeling about things and be able to keep up a bit better. And if not, I’ll blame weather.
Anywho, by my reckoning I owe y’all a pair of Think, Know, Prove posts, one Faculty Council Corner (my bad on the Candidate Forum request, Realist–a good idea misplayed by me, a dropped ball as it were, an error for which I apologize), a few What Up?s, and I’ve got a huge back up in my own reading and suggestion list/postings, not to mention more than a few comments out there to which I’d like to respond (I’m coming Avramakis! You, too Chris!) and all sorts of things that need more opining upon, and, of course, more than a little grading to do.
So it seems, therefore, to be a perfect time to throw to The Realist for some mid-term Shenanigans, while I try to take care of some business.
Thanks in advance, Realist. Take ‘er away…
