Edging Back In

May 10th, 2018 at 07:28 pm

Yay Hooray! Today was the last day of classes! Days of grading and admin lie ahead, but the load lessens.

I had sort of an eventful last day. On my way to the university I stopped for a last day doughnut treat for my favorite class. Unfortunately for the store, my handy reusable bag caught a wine bottle display and off went two bottles of Riesling smashing to the floor. The clerks were great about it, but I was a bit abashed.

I've somehow got put on a huge, intense, grant- writing committee that looks like it's going to require some work well into the next month. If we get the money, it'll be great, but more committee work was not on my wish list.

There's plenty more to chat about, but I am indeed just edging my way into summer break.

    At least it was just Riesling! Sauvignon blanc would have been more upsetting to spill. Wink
    Glad you're nearly out of the woods and we'll hopefully hear more from you soon!

    I certainly agree, ceejay. For me, smashed Riesling is a service to the world.

    Too funny on your service to the world. For little ole me, I have no idea about wines, so I will take your word for it.

    Glad you are seeing a light at the end of the tunnel.

    Riesling is very sweet. I can see why someone wouldn't like it. It's best very cold. In fact it might make good popsicles. My mate and I drank a lot of the cheapest Riesling we could find in order to use the blue bottles (were your breakages packed in blue glass?) for a bottle tree.
