It's over!

Last exam for this term has now been written, and this very tired student is about to leave the building . . .

I'm off home for a nice nap . . . which might just last until tomorrow. Who knows? Tomorrow could involve some nice relaxing knitting . . .

Happy Easter, y'all! (Don't forget to feed Charlotte a tasty fly or two while you're visiting, eh?)

It's spring!

This is day 3 of sockless toes! Oh joy, oh joy! Its quite amazing how this city goes from snowbanks to sunshine in a very short time. One day my fellow students are bundled to the eyebrows, and the next day there's so many neon-bright white legs and bare feet showing, a body could go blind. I haven't dug out the capris yet, but it sure feels good to wear sandals again. Funny thing, I love knitting socks, but I sure hate wearing them. (How many times can You use the word "sure" in a paragraph??? Don't pick on my English -- I just finished a three hour exam!) I think my feet came from a long line of equatorial-type bare feet.

Well, term papers are finished, and all three turned out to be "A" papers. One exam is over, and although I'm a little fried at the moment, I feel pretty good about what I wrote. I have one day to recuperate, and then two more exams ... one Monday, and one Tuesday. Ugh! Its been 12 to 14 hour days all this past month, so I think I shall spend Easter Weekend sleeping. Or at least lounging in my jammies.

I read a thought-provoking little bit of graffiti in a library study carrel this past week: "Fighting for peace is like f***ing for virginity". Just thought I'd share that.

Have a good weekend, y'all!
