We gave our students cookies, which they liked muchly, while meanwhile I tried to figure out if my lecture (which, I should note, featured public hit lists, death by molten gold, love letters passed around the Senate, death by debauched orgy, and the assassination of five major political leaders) was boring them or they were just dying of heatstroke in an un-air-conditioned lecture hall. I _hate_ having to look professional while 7 months pregnant (pretty much exactly) in 92 degree weather.

If you wish to cool down, today is Ben & Jerry's free cone day, and 50 cent day at Dunkin' for iced coffee.
Mood:: 'amused' amused

Ugh, lecture hall full of people...that must have sucked.

Do you have to stand the whole time while you lecture? How do you manage?

It's not that bad this time so far, as long as I remember to do physical therapy exercises. Last time, with two sprained ankles, I lectured from a bar stool. In section I sit down, though.

*hug* It's gotta be the heat. There's no way that lecture could have been boring! I hope it cools down soon - and until then, I hope there's some way for you to go swimming or something like that!
