Hee. I'm a poet.
Seriously, since I've decided the raison d'etre of this blog is to describe what this particular professor does all day, here's a sketch of what I did yesterday:
- Worked on the syllabus for my early English literature class
- And also:
- quickly mailed some overdue holiday presents
- quickly deposited Christmas money
- turned in two completed syllabuses* for photocopying
- e-mailed the junior high teacher with whom I'm working on teaching The Hobbit
- did a 45-minute run
- But mostly: worked on the syllabus for my early English literature class
And btw, is there a program or a plug-in for making syllabuses* that makes the dates automatic, a bit like using the "repeat" function on Palm software? Because I swear, typing in the dates takes up about half the work.
*From now on this blog will use "syllabuses" as the plural of "syllabus." I'm making a stand. The word is fully Anglicized and therefore open to forming its plural through analogy to the most common English morphology for plurals of words ending in -s. And anyway, my American Heritage Dictionary says I'm not the only one -- it lists "syllabuses" before "syllabi."
