the ending of a perfect day
I just remembered that I need to have all my rec letters in to the archdiocese by Monday or I’ll get put on substitute teacher pay until everything is resolved.
Which is mostly doable, but they want a clergy reference. (My friend who used to have this job said it was not hard to get one, but it means I have to go to College Church and talk to a priest and probably tell a lot of artfully constructed equivocations about how I’m totally still practicing and it makes me want to chew my own foot off.

"Standardized testing has many pros and cons" is NOT A THESIS STATEMENT.
At least your recurring failures will lead smoothly into tomorrow’s lesson plan, I guess.
on a cheerier note
My legacy as president of Shakespeare at Kalamazoo: during my term, the number of David Tennant-related papers in our sponsored sessions rose to an all-time high.
Aufidius: My rage is gone; and I am struck with sorrow.
That’s what happens when you murder your boyfriend, doofus.
so, EVERY version of Coriolanus is nonstop slashfic? good times
It’s pretty much impossible to do Coriolanus and not have it be nonstop slashfic, because the copious amounts of gay in it aren’t even subtext, they’re just right out there being copious and gay.
My Lord the Kyng ys reallye into spelunkinge, and he maketh me go wyth hym every weekende. The while we are downe muckinge about yn waiste-high watere and almost fallinge over ledges, my Lord the King speketh moore and more of how “appealing” revenge semeth to hym. Ich saye to hym that revenge is never a good idea. To convince hym of the evils of revenge, Ich have written a tale of Melibee, and yet everich tyme Ich do yive it unto hym to rede he semeth to falle yn to a slumber. Ich did aske hym if the tale helde no solas for hym, and he did saye ful curteisly and kingly unto me, “Nay, think nat so, Geoffrey. It ys merelye thys newe imported feather bedde of myne from Calays that ys so softe and pleasaunt unto me. It maketh me to sleep everich tyme I do laye down on yt to rede of yower tale. Indeede, thys feather bed ys so envoluping it semeth that a man koude esily be slayne by it.” And then he looked out ynto space. (x)
Eddie Redmayne is capable of facial expressions, though, so that’s good. (He played Richard II a couple of years ago, but I’ve heard audio of him and it didn’t impress me. OTOH he was adorable in Les Mis)
I have seen pictures of him as Richard, yeah.
I’m a little whackadoodle right now, but he does look like Hughes, doesn’t he?
Oh, he totally does, they have similar facial structures and everything, it’s just that Redmayne has facial expressions enabled (I don’t always like his acting, but he does display facial expressions, so good on him ;) )
i can has them
every time i go to my shrink
I feel worse after I leave than I did when I got there.
I was talking today about the huge amount of work I have to do because I have a book review due today and 28 papers to grade for tomorrow because otherwise I won’t see them again until Monday and the final draft of the paper is due the following Friday and I can’t change the due date because I already changed it once (because the guidance counselor decided to come in and meet with my fourth-hour class on the day they were supposed to do peer review and it took the whole time).
Anyway, she said I wouldn’t be so stressed if I let them submit papers by email. Thanks, that helps a ton. I realize that as a doctor at a sliding-scale clinic in the city you see patients with actual problems all the time, but I’m aware that it’s my own fault I’m completely overworked this week. I’m just going to go stand in the pharmacy line and embarrass myself by bursting into tears now.
