  1. Are you rubbing it in? This sabbatical thing? And all your movie viewing? No fair!
    I'm just trying to make it through the next two weeks. The rest is just gravy baby. Gravy!!
    I'm going to try to work today, to make myself feel less bad about all the work I haven't done in the past year.
    And then I'll watch some basketball. And maybe go shopping.

  2. Lazy Saturday's are the BEST!

  3. How long is this sabbatical?

  4. I ask because I have a pathetic 3-week sabbatical coming. This (and when summer comes) is when I think for a minute (minute minute) about the loveliness of academia.

  5. i'm still super glad that you decided to meet me for the movie! it was definitely worth it!!
