No rest for the weary.

I was denied a vacation day or sick day at my full-time job, and I have tons of work to do on my part-time teaching gig. I'm never going to get caught up now. And to make matters worse, I feel like I'm coming down with a sinus infection or something. But onward I must forge. I'll be grading papers all weekend, which in fact, makes the weekend not a weekend anymore.

At least I have a couple of things to look forward to. On Monday night, Joey and I are going to see David Sedaris, one of my favorite authors. He's speaking at SMU. I hope my laughing doesn't disturb Cherrio too much! Then on Tuesday night, we're going to the Dallas Mavericks playoff game against the San Antonio Spurs. This will be Cheerio's first sporting event, and I fully intend to show him/her how evil those Spurs are!
