happiness is...

  • An "imperial latte"--with beautiful foamed milk swirling around on the top of the mug, just like in the picture.
  • A double chocolate chip muffin
  • Sunshine (!) streaming through the windows of the coffeeshop
  • Free wifi
  • The end of grading in sight.

Update, 1:28pm

Grading done. (Well, except for participation grades, which require a spreadsheet that hasn't been delivered to me yet. But the part that requires thinking is done.) Woohoo! Too tired to celebrate properly, so will instead sit here savoring the coffee for a little while, and looking out the window at the traffic on Park Avenue.

I must say, Spin Caffé gets high marks for service and quality, as well as their brilliant decision to provide free Wifi. I will most definitely be back. Perhaps if enough people vote with their feet--and wallets--more places will realize that wifi is a valuable thing to provide to their customers, and that it shoudl be thought of as an amenity, not a marketable commodity.

This is, I think, the ONLY moment at which I genuinely envy those of you on the quarter system -- we're in the seventh-inning stretch, here, and you guys are already headed for the showers.

Did I just use a sports metaphor? Yeesh. It's going to be one of those days.
