Glass Half-Empty New Kid: Man, I've been a complete waste of space the last few days - I have accomplished NOTHING.
Glass Half-Full New Kid: Now, that's not strictly true. You put together the Teaching Carnival.
GHENK: Oh, well, BLOGGING. That doesn't count - and it wasn't even my own content.
GHFNK: And you folded/put away the huge stack of laundry that's been living on top of the dryer for weeks.
GHENK: Yeah, but I should have done that WEEKS ago. Plus, there's still the huge pile sitting on the washing machine.
GHFNK: You changed the shower curtain liner with a new spiffy one that has suction cups on the edges and everything.
GHENK: That's because the old one was disgusting! There was black stuff growing in its creases.
GHFNK: You wrote/delivered a kick-ass lecture on late medieval English religion.
GHENK: Actually, that was kind of a good lecture...
GHFNK: You and LDH went out for brunch today with Very Cool Colleague and his Even Cooler Wife.
GHENK: Yeah, that was fun.
GHFNK: And you submitted your book orders for spring.
GHENK: You know, I'm really kind of psyched about the book orders. I'd got so sick of teaching the same things over again in those repeat classes, and I'll never have the time to read anything new in those fields unless I change up the books. And there's a bunch of interesting new stuff out there. So that'll be fun.
GHFNK: See? Think of how much fun you'll have reading all new stuff next semester.
GHENK: Yeah... all new stuff. Hmmm. Maybe that wasn't such a good idea.....
