1. The Deke brought home a wad of sliced corned beef and a loaf of Great Harvest Whole Wheat bread and a clump of cole slaw, but it wasn't enough....so I went to Albertson's and purchased some sliced baby swiss cheese and a bag of Lay's original potato chips, came home, assembled a corned beef and swiss with French's yellow mustard sandwich, sliced a fat Nalley's crunchy dill pickle in half, clumped some cole slaw on a plate, and poured myself a pile of Lay's potato chips and it was one excellent supper.
2. I got out the coffee bean grinder and pulverized some of those dark Ethiopian beans InlandEmpireGirl sent me for Christmas and enjoyed one holy and robust cup of coffee. I forsook the CoffeeMate. I went for the 2% milk and for this boy, that was perfect.
3. It's a marathon reading all these papers at the end of the quarter. It's an enjoyable marathon, especially because many of my students have written memorable essays, many of them investigating what they have come to understand "home" to mean for them.
