Despite spending some time playing with my new CrackBerry and learning to mobile blog, I did actually get a lot of work done today. In fact, I finished reading/grading the remaining essays I had, and I finalized all my classes' grades, entered them in the computer system, and viola! I'm done for the term! Tomorrow, I am just going in to my office for a few hours to get some things organized for January (when I return), and to make sure all my hard drive files are backed up to my jump drive (they are "ghosting" our hard drives over the break). So, just a few hours of work tomorrow, and then I'm home free for about 3 weeks!
Ah, what a relief.
Also, on my way home, I picked up Jer-Bear's final Christmas present, so that means I'm done with x-mas shopping as well. (And yes, as per your questions regarding Tuesday's post, we did open one gift each. Really, I just wanted Jerry to open one of his stocking stuffers: "The Dark Knight" on DVD because I wanted to watch it again. And it was just as good the 2nd time around as it was in the theater. I got to open one of my stocking stuffers too: An iTunes GC, totally sweet!)
Then, this evening I went for a "misty" 4 miler (39:14). See, it was pouring rain earlier, but by the time I got laced up to run, it was really just a light drizzle, so light that it was more like a fizzy fog. Quite enjoyable actually since it kept me nice and cool.
P.S. Who can tell me where the title of this post comes from? The first person to tell me will win a...virtual pat on the back. Lame, yes, but you didn't think I'd offer an actual, tangible prize, did you?
