SORRY, KIDS

For the next six days I will be shackled to hundreds of other college faculty and high school AP teachers in a conference center in Salt Lake City to grade the many thousands of Advanced Placement exams taken by high school students over the previous academic year. If your kid (or you, on the off chance anyone high school aged reads this) doesn't get the score he or she was expecting, it may be my fault.

That's not strictly true, since grading is done according to a very demanding rubric to ensure consistency. So it is technically not my fault; I am only following orders.

Though it is not a 24-hour per day endeavor, I do have a large amount of my time in the upcoming week spoken for. If updates are less regular than usual, I apologize.

Be sure to catch up on episodes of Mass for Shut-ins if you need a fix. The past two episodes (004 and 005) in particular are very good, I think, as I'm starting to figure out the production end of things as well as tailoring the content to the format.

  • Ed, whatever you do, make sure it includes a stop at Vosen's Bakery for a slice or 5 of their thüringer mohnkuchen. Seriously. It's the best I've ever had, and I've eaten a LOT of poppyseed confections. You won't be sorry.

  • If you are in SLC and want to hit the town with a long-time reader and once-upon-a-time Facebook friend, hit me up. Been here about 2 years, since moving from Michigan. I assume you can see/access my email address.

  • When I saw you were in Salt Lake City my first thought was you were trying to negotiate a sponsorship from Me Secret Undies for the podcast.

  • Jeremy, that sounds like an excuse for all of us to get Ed drunk enough to talk like Ivars for most of the evening, and I approve.

  • Hehe, there certainly are more Salt Lakers here than I thought there would be.

    What conference center is it you are incarcerated in, if I may ask?

  • Ed, I read this:

    "For the next six days I will be shackled to hundreds of other college faculty and high school AP teachers in a conference center in Salt Lake City"

    and I thought, "Ooooooooh, Ed'z done got hisself some KINK!".

    Then I read the rest of the sentence and realized that it was some sort of hipurbowling and there was NO sex involved.

    I'm sorry but it was gonna be a great, "Letters to Penthouse" opener.

  • As a fellow AP reader in the first session (in Kansas City, for Computer Science), it's super convenient for me in catching up that your posts slowed down during reading week. ;)
