Why Coyote's not at blog today*

Here's why:

  • 5:30am alarm
  • 6:00am elliptical
  • 7:00am quick breakfast
  • 7:30-8:45am University breakfast for top academic student recruits: talking up Study Abroad and the Ireland class
  • 9:00am race to pick up Dharmonia for her morning meeting
  • 9:15-10:45am edit video of the Celtic Ensemble (still hoping-against-hope for a successful--if costly--recovery of crashed 500gb hard-drive)
  • 11-11:50am teach sophomore music history class, cope with technology glitches, read the riot act to the dozen students who think the Friday TA-led discussion meetings are "optional"
  • 12-12:30pm code, publish, and upload Flash slideshow in aftermath of history class
  • 12:30-1:00pm fine-tune slideshow for upcoming 1:00pm class, print mid-term exam forms
  • 1-1:50pm administer mid-term in Ireland class--realize that I'll have a stack of multi-page essays to grade
  • 2-3:30pm catch up with recommendations, paperwork, weirdo student actings-out in various of our music appreciation classes
  • 3:30-5pm mentoring meeting with tenure-stream colleague
  • 5:15pm race home, feed Mister Man, create some dinner that'll keep for Dharmonia when she gets home after rehearsal
  • 6:30pm down the street to lead monthly Irish ceili dance at neighborhood coffee-shop
  • 7-9:35pm play for/lead dance
  • 9:50pm home to start preparing for next day
And that's why Coyote's not at blog today.

Will try to do better tomorrow.

Below the jump: dawn (and spring blossoms) on the South Plains.
