Exciting Things!

1. I got a new fly swatter! The old one was getting really floppy, and was designed with the letters "A,B,C,D" across the face of it. Sadly, only the "D" now remains, so many flies were escaping through the gaping hole. I splurged on a nicer swatter--it's really whippy, and a little heavier, and it makes me really happy.

2. I saw Avengers! It was great! We took a bus to Lijiang to see it, and it was totally worth it. It was dubbed in Chinese, so we didn't understand any part of the plot, but that didn't matter. According to my Mom, we just ended up missing out on a lot of dull speechifying....and I can deal with that.

3. My students did decently on the midterm. Average was high, and plenty of students got good scores. They're still not where I want them to be, but it's nice to not be stressing about grades any more.


  1. Congratulations on your new purchase! I suspect it will be more effective than the current one as described! I haven't seen Avengers, but need to add it to my list. If it is good w/o the plot, it sounds like a fun movie. Congratulations to you and your students on their midterm scores!

  2. Good grades AND a new fly swatter! Doesn't get much better than that. Nice work.
