Haggis for warmth?

The weather has warmed up (it’s only -8C right now), so I’m not feeling as unhappy sitting in front of the computer. But I am still working on the shawl, which is getting pretty close to completion. I’ll be prepared when the temperature dips again, as it seems likely to do in the next few days. This has slowed down my progress on the other two sweaters, but I’m close to finishing the back of the grey sweater.

I was making up a test for my class for this Friday, and I actually cut and pasted something from a photocopy of the textbook — with scissors and tape, I mean, not on the computer. I felt so old-fashioned! I hope they don’t all do too well on this test… my fear is always that I make the tests too easy, which is a harder thing to fix than making them too hard, actually. We’ll see.

Happy Robbie Burns Day to everyone! We’re heading out tonight for some haggis and whisky (well, I don’t like Scotch, but Mark will be enjoying his wee tipple). I don’t know if we’ll catch the pipers, but it would be nice.

Damn - I didn’t plan this well enough - otherwise I’d join you.

Good luck and have a scotch for me.

I think I might actually host a dinner next year.
