I'm wiped out from a long crappy-mediocre day of teaching yesterday. My pessimism about the election is getting confirmed more and more by the hour. I could only watch the coverage last night in snippets, it was just too frustrating. I have horrible cramps. (Yeah, that's probably more personal than I usually get on this blog but somehow it seems fitting that I'm nauseous, in pain, and cranky today.) And, I have to meet with my chair because you know that administrative job I turned down in May? Well, they're turning on the pressure to try and get me to do it.

Now, I know I could be a starving orphan in a war-torn country and I should just stop feeling so miserable. But I'm just not real chipper today.
