Being Boring

March 13th, 2012 at 04:25 am

I sat and graded for hours today, finally got dressed about 1, graded some more, then went off to teach my night class. They're reading Elie Wiesel's Night, so we had a great discussion, but until my break, I think I'll be the most boring person on the planet.

My one triumph today? My DH's favorite instant coffee for a super bargain price at CVS with $10 extra bucks,

In fact, all my expenditures today were on coffee: DH's instant and my (ugh) machine coffee at school for a whooping 50 cents.

    As an addict, I love coffee bargains. Except Farmer Brothers for free is not even a bargain: I would rather have the thick, bloody pipecleaner sensation in my head than Farmer Brothers coffee.

    I have a great story about Elie Wiesel. Years ago, he came to our college for a lecture on Holocaust week. He met, face to face, one of our Trustees, who, as a young soldier had taken part in the liberation of the Buchenwald death camp. Elie Wiesel was one of those prisoners. So he met one of the people who saved his life! That particular Trustee happened to be Jewish himself, and after this meeting, he went to schools on a lecture circuit and shared his experience.

    I thought Night was a great book.

    Wow, CB, what a story. I have a PBS documentary on Wiesel that I show, and I'm continually moved and impressed by him. My evening class students are all first-gen college students, some, frankly, without the capacity for, or interest in, learning for its own sake. Yet, they all are blown away by Night. What a voice Wiesel has.
