if we took the bones out...

I'm working on some upcoming homework assignments.

They need enough leeway for the frightened freshmen, hiding in the middle row, but also for the bright ones to have fun and that I can catch the cheaters without too much searching.

At the same time, I like slightly quirky assignments, ones that might inspire a few extra jokes from the students or at least keep me amused. I'm thinking of something having to do with time travel or fairylands.

I suspect that this flight of fancy has something to do with my residual feelings about Helen Hill, but the greyness of Indiana winter doesn't help much. There's no harm in a little escapism, is there? (I hope)

Well, fairyland. That reminds me: I'm far, far overdue for a trip to Chesterton's Elfland ("The Ethics of," from Orthodoxy). I'm going. In fact, I'm gone; I'm just purely outta here. Will it take time travel? Maybe; spatial travel for sure. No matter. I'll write you a travel report. I won't cheat, either.

The dark Indiana winter is already dragging down.

Aren't you totally jealous of the blogs that got a mention in the new "Intake Weekly"? Maybe someday, Lemming, we'll get recognized, too. Until then, let us revel in obscurity!
