Thanksgiving highlights

I learned that cheese in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, hovers over $40 a pound. I am thankful not to live in Williamsburg.

At a physicist Thanksgiving dinner, I met yet another Stuyvesant grad, further confirming that we are everywhere. I am thankful that I went to this high school, so that I have something to mention in conversation that implies that I am not entirely idiotic, when my level of comprehension when it comes to pendulums and particles suggests that I am, in fact, idiotic.

Jo and I got a table! It can also function as a desk! I am beyond thankful that I will now be able to do grading without a subway ride to campus or a coffee-shop purchase. The couch-coffee table method has its limits. The thanks really go to Jo for carrying the table up all those stairs.

The odd thing is that even when I have a decent table I do pretty much all my grading on the outside...

Hi! I'm a lurker/blog stalker and thought I'd comment...

I don't have grading to do yet, but I do my assignments with my laptop propped against my knees, while sitting on the floor, leaning with my back against a chair. I have a desk. But for some reason, I never use it. I could just sit in the chair. But I don't do that either. Hmmm...

I have chair aversion I guess.
