  1. Okay, I so need details about this “textbook trivia” of which you speak.

    At least, when you have a minute. Which I understand might not happen any time this semester.

  2. wow. humbling numbers. try. try. try.

  3. lots to do – you can do it! 🙂

  4. I want to know more about this textbook trivia too!

    Looking through your list, I see at least a couple of lines that you should be completely ignoring, and they both have to do with grading. Screw that. Give the papers back whenever you give them back. All the other stuff is more important.

  5. I am familiar with the feeling of “counting”. I am in the midst of it myself. Hang in, I’m betting you can do it.
