Sweet Fancy Moses**

I have graded 56 research papers (!) and 35 essay exams (!) in the past 48 hours, and--here's the part that confuses me--I am not insane or dead or even cranky. This would make sense if I were on the "I AM FINISHED!" high, but no no, oh no: I have 20 longer research papers and 55 essay exams left to grade before I can tabulate final grades. I still seem to have managed to convince myself that everything is fine, just fine. Please explain.

**Yes--I totally stole this phrase (which I had never heard and which I love and which I will now be using with alarming frequency, making me sound like a West Virginian grandmother who wears Quacker Factory sweaters from QVC and smokes Benson & Hedges Deluxe Ultra-Light cigarettes) from the incomparable fug girls.
