I decided this weekend that I would very much like to fly to England and spend a week there visiting various people and from there fly to Tuscany, rent a little villa and spend three weeks there. (I just saw Under the Tuscan Sun on Thursday and the landscape made me salivate)
So, if I fly out tomorrow morning I don't have to write my paper due tomorrow night, nor do I have to write a midterm or present a seminar on Thursday. Seems like a good plan to me.
Yesterday I joined Anj and Brian on an afternoon/evening trip to Toronto to visit the one and only Mr Brink. We went out for dinner at The Hungarian Schnitzel House and walked out quite satiated. I'd never eaten schnitzel before, and had imagined it to be quite different than it was. Delicious, nonetheless. On the return to Hamilton, we ran into some very snow weather and had a bit of a run-in with the median on the Hwy at the Ford Plant but God was good, there were no cars directly around us, and no one was hurt. I'm often so amazed at how much traveling (in cars and other modes of transportation) I have done, and have never before been in an accident. I think my guardian angels must be working a bit overtime.
Anyhow. Papers to write, midterms to study for, seminars to prepare. Cheers.
