Hey everybody. So tonight is the night I emerge from my cocoon of spouting things off in front of students and become a majestic and venomous Garden Tiger Moth.

I just graded my first paper. It saddens me to give it a C+ when content-wise it would have gotten a B-, but the student basically pulled D-level citation which brought it down. This paper is one which, when workshopping the drafts, another student said "You are going to love Taylor's* paper - it's really good!"

Ah well. On to the next.
