I swear I only meant to add two new chicks to our flock this year. Somehow, I ended up with five. There's a very logical explanation for this (basically: chicks are really, really cute and I cannot resist them) but you'll have to wait a few days for the full story and a proper introduction. It's the last week of the semester (finally!) and I have a million things to do before Thursday. After Thursday, though, I am free, free, free until August, and you better believe this blog is going to come back to life in a serious way.
Until then, I have papers to grade, poems to workshop, and chicks to snuggle. It's a rough life, I'll tell you that much.
