- Saturday morning: join other CU faculty and staff to interview prospective student candidates for two major scholarships. They were all smart and sincere, a few almost frighteningly so. Hope to see a good number of them in the fall, however things work out.
- Thanks to early Christmas present from parents, replaced my car stereo and can now play CDs without elaborate and awkward Rube-Goldberg contraptions. Happy, because the library’s audiobook collection is growing in CD form, static or dwindling on cassettes; also I have a lot of music CDs I’ve only been able to enjoy at home or in the office. On the other hand, I now have a lot of cassettes that will no longer be playable in the car. I guess that’s progress!
- Shopped for Operation Christmas Child and church’s Thanksgiving food drive.
- Came home & collapsed.
- Plan massive grading push for the next few days.
