"...another reason I'm intrigued with the hanged of Salem, especially the women, is that a number of them aroused suspicion in the first place because they were financially independent, or sharp-tongued, or kept to themselves. In other words, they were killed off for the same sort of life I live right now but with longer skirts and fewer cable channels." Sarah Vowell, The partly cloudy patriot.


Please to excuse Shrinky...

I had a horrible sinus headache all day yesterday that turned into a blinding and nauseating migraine overnight. I had intended to grade papers yesterday and this morning - but I just couldn't with all that head pain. So, papers won't be ready to hand back today (luckily I didn't promise this - I just had it as a personal goal) - could someone write a note for me to take to my students?

Dear Darling Students,

Be forewarned. I am suffering from a debilitating headache with accompanying nausea. I feel as if I've been dragged at high speeds through the deepest depths of the river styx. Do not ask if I have your papers 'done.' Do not petulantly stare at me when you hear my answer to the aforementioned question, lest you awaken the wrath of shrinky, a wrath befitting the most terrifying wraith and baneful of banshees!

How's that for a letter;-)
