1. It felt good to get my WR 121 classes underway. I try to walk the fine line between being eager to help and reasonable about problems by students might have and being clear that I mean business as their teacher. I try to be honest without being intimidating. I try to communicate understanding without seeming a pushover.
2. Heh. I put the porketta in the crock pot a little too late, but finally, about 8:00, Sam, the Deke, and decided that we could start shredding it, with a little effort, and so we did and the meat was good with the onions and the brown basmati rice. I'll try to remember to put the porketta on a little earlier next time -- like two hours earlier.
3. I'll readily admit, though, that the wait for the porketta was made much easier the pint bottle of Black Boss Porter I savored. It's a Polish Porter and is jam packed with chocolate goodness and other sweet tastes that inspired me to noisiness with every drink. I'm glad I only drank one. It's alcohol content is pretty high for me. Its taste, though, really good.
