Brief update:

Grading hell is over (except for 4 make up exams--but who knows when they'll get theirs :-)--I am free to return to writing purgatory.

Today I attended a rally for striking janitors and, at the suggestion of one of the organizers, did a brief interview with one of the janitors who works, through a subcontractor, for Chevron. I'm going to write it up and post, after said organizer sends me pics and/or video.

I am preparing to pack and wrap up some loose ends (i.e. throw all the perishables out) before we leave tomorrow. Blogging will, of course, be light as I have no computer of my own in Louisiana, I need to finish latest chapter, and I may spend a fair amount of time celebrating my birthday. :-)

I feel like singing a chorus of "(War)Grading is Over" for you :)

I too will be seeing the family unit for T'Day. Fortunately, it's a day trip for me, so I can still be attached to my beloved laptop! Have fun coming home to Louisiana-Hell :) As usual, it's time to wear shorts for the Holidays.
