Just thought you ought to know that. :-)
The case, for those legally inclined, is Van v. Goldstein.

Professor X is very organized, but only in his head.
One year, when I was pregnant with Thing 1, an entire class of mine conspired, and every one of them wrote:
She's a great professor. Give her a raise because she needs more money to buy
My number one choice of all time, though, is a comment a student in my Psychology of Criminal Behavior class once wrote:
It's an interesting course, but there's too much psychology.

My camera decided that Polish winter weather doesn't agree with it, and a lot of my pictures turned out like this, or worse:
And this is Nowa Huta, which is just outside Cracow, and which we visited with the Crazy Communism tour:
It was built by the Communists as a steel mill town, and intended as a centerpiece of Communism. It ended up becoming the site of protests and an active location for the Solidarity movement. The square to the left is Ronald Reagan Square. Really:
This wall is outside a 17th century synagogue in Cracow. Another part of the wall had graffiti which said (in German, interestingly) "Jews out of Palestine." Some things never change.

Had a quiet night last night. Hubby went to his friend's house for a poker game, Thing 2 turned in early, and T1 and I stayed up and watched the Twilight Zone marathon.
I'm leaving for Warsaw in a little over a week. I'm pretty excited about it! Have to dig up some of my warmest clothes, though.
Anyone know any good recipes for lemons? I have a good crop of Meyers this year. If you've never tried them, they're much better than the Eurekas you get in the store. Bigger and sweeter, with a bit of a floral taste to them, almost. Last year I made a nummy lemon custard cake, the year before that I mixed up some limoncello. Need ideas for this year!
