Not a Grade-A weekend, mind you. No, no. A weekend devoted to grading.
Insert cheering here.
Especially sad is that it’s Homecoming hereabouts. I’d much prefer enjoying the festivities than whipping out the red pen (and my students would probably be happier, too!). Not that I can enjoy too many of the festivities: After taking away the faculty’s free admission to football games, the @#$%ing athletic department has done the same for basketball (’cause, you know, they pay us so much already). What a greedy, short-sighted, and moronic move. And a few other terms I ought not say in public.
Oh, I’m not surprised, but that doesn’t mean I’m not pissed. If I wasn’t already attacking the powers-that-be over other matters, I’d start a petition. Hell, the cadets ought to start one. Isn’t it community-building to have the faculty and students mingling to cheer on our teams?
