Or maybe just make Brioche. Thank you so much!

Now to narrow my RSS reader (something like 50 feeds) to my favorite five… what a challenge!

Thank you…although are you sure that you are reading the same blog that I’m writing? I’m not sure anyone has ever called me “fearless”.

Such other great blogs, too!

I watched it of course, but I don’t teach T-Th this term so I didn’t have to make the choice about what to do in class.

I had ultimately decided to show the speech because it linked nicely with some awful comments made by the author that we were studying about what would happen if Obama became president and also with the consideration of race and miscegenation in colonial Africa in the novel we were reading, and how the author’s views about contemporary politics were influenced by her experiences growing up in Africa. Anyway. I’d decided to show the speech. Except the technology in my classroom was not up to the task! First, the computer in the smart room couldn’t get any streaming video or sound because it hasn’t been upgraded since approximately 1995. Obviously, Faculty don’t have privileges to run updates, so that option was out. Then I thought – I know! I can bring my laptop to the classroom! All is not lost! And I *did* manage to get sound working. HOWEVER, the picture wouldn’t project. So they listened to most of the speech, though we did miss the beginning of it due to the technology stuff. And then it was over, and then we had regular class, and they did good work.

I bet that was a longer answer than you ever expected to get :) Thanks for the award!
