That gurgling and splashing you hear is the sound of me drowning

I have too much to do. My three classes are kicking my ass and would be doing so even if I hadn't lost all of this weekend to helping out my folks (which I needed to do and I'm glad I did, but still...), and thus are doing so doubly because of that lost time. (I know that's an ugly sentence, though I must admit I like "thus are doing so doubly" if only because it's fun to say out loud. Go ahead, try it and see.) There is too much to do and not enough time to do it. And it's only the second week! Ack!

Of course I realize this describes all of academia. So I'm not really giving you a "poor me, pity me" rant. What I am doing is alerting you to the fact that I haven't had time to blog. Or to comment much (and when I do it's likely incoherent). And I'm behind on everybody's posts from about last Thursday up until now, which includes the marvelous Teaching Carnival V over at Ancarett's Abode (where, I've been told, she has included three of my posts, not just the one I tagged -- thank you, Ancarett!).

By which I mean to say, it's not you, it's me. :) I'll be back soon, I promise.

Ack, indeed, on the level of busy-ness! Happy to have included your great posts in the Teaching Carnival.
