is the same thing as being between Scylla and Charybdis. Or a rock and a hard place.
I was planning on going to Where your Mouth is, and then realized that the open mic started at 7. Given that I have to be at dinner here at school until 6:30, I figured, I’ll eat dinner, and then drive up. I’ll be late, but it’ll be ok. Then at dinner, my department chair reminded me that he’s leaving right after the end of school, and could I please have my comments done by then? And MC came up and reminded me that the fifth grade had their dance — excuse me, MOVEMENT performance last night, and I said I’d come, wouldn’t I?
Glumly, I said I had to work on comments, and so I did. Heard from mom and dad, though, for an hour in the middle of comments; and then called after her dinner with , and a couple of other phone calls… and… and…
I didn’t make where your mouth is or the fifth grade show, and I only got two comments done. At least I got the introductory paragraphs done, describing what each of my classes did in general over the course of the term. So I’m not entirely up the creek without a boat, at least. Still, I didn’t get done nearly what I wanted to.
I’m going to Amherst Drum and Dance tonight, regardless. The first exam is here this morning (reading and foreign languages), so I’ll have an hour this morning to get some comments done. Then a short day of classes, and then fencing practicee — in theory I’ll be able to leave campus around 4:30-4:45 to get to dinner and AD&D in time to see , F & T, and various other folks in Amherst. I’m looking forward to it.
Oh, yeah — if anyone wishes to go to Amherst Drum and Dance from the LJ/Worcester-poetry community, and get your groove on, comment here and I’ll leave directions…. Nah, let’s do it this way. Basically, here are the directions:
