specifics

I've been getting a lot accomplished today. Not writing, but other things that need to get done, so that's good I guess.

Also, I made the mistake of incorporating a famous fantasy novel into a few questions on my Midterm exam. Instead of actually answering the question I asked, students are sometimes providing long discussions of fantasy-novel politics and skirting the topic of -ology entirely. I assume they're thinking something like, "if I show her I'm as big a geek as she apparently is, maybe she'll give me points even though I don't know the answer to this question." Little geeks, you are sorely mistaken.
