Informally, I'm trying to get a crapload of assessment paperwork done by the end of May ... mostly because I'm going to be a nomad in June.
2. May is National Barbecue Month. Do you prefer cooking indoors or out? What's the best thing about a barbecue? What's the last thing you cooked on an outdoor grill?
My cooking skills are rather ... um ... limited. I can open a box with the best of folks, but I've never learned the art of actual "cooking". But we did get a gas grill a few years ago, and I will cook on that from time to time. (In part, it's because it's easy; marinate the chicken overnight, throw it on the grill, take it off when it's done.)
3. What is one thing on your "never again" list?
I was Moderator of the Faculty Senate for a year ... and then, six years later, volunteered to do it again. Neither experience was bad, but ... I've done my time, and I've stranded myself professionally as a result of doing that.
I'm annoyed by all the incessant "look at how silly those young people are" snide remarks. I spend my life working with those young people. They live in a different world than I do, and they're gracious enough to invite me into it from time to time. If you take the time to listen, you might learn something.
I'm not sure what I love about my generation; I don't feel like I'm a part of it.
Lilac. We had them at our wedding.
I don't have a single touchstone song like that. Of course, I don't tend to get really riled up much, either.
My time ... helping out at church with lots of stuff.
I need to quit dreaming about receiving external recognition for what I do, and find reward in the doing.
