Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Grading Hell Edition

So this week has basically been a perfect storm of crap – work has been tremendously busy and stressful as I’m juggling a lot right now and I also had to grade all the exams for the class that I’m teaching which is a huge time suck. Add to that the fact that I haven’t been sleeping well and some stuff going on in my personal life (not me, but many of my friends are having a rough week) and I’m pretty much living this meme right now:

Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Snow Day Edition

Thanks to Mother Nature, I have something of a snow day today. I did go into the office this morning for a few hours, since it was hard to justify staying home when no snow had fallen, but once the flakes started flying, I took advantage of liberal leave to get home before the roads got really bad. I’m still working today, but at least I’m doing so from the comfort and safety of my couch. The main downside is that my cat intern is not being a cooperative co-worker.

So while I curse the wonders of modern technology that mean I’m never not working, get caught up on the pop culture that you might missed with this week’s roundup.
