As of about eleven o’clock this morning, when my class ends, I am OFFICIALLY on vacation. The first real vacation I’m taking—not counting two days in the mountains in October—since August. Yes. Yes. Yesssssss!

I worry I will hardly know what to do with myself. But I think a good start will include sleeping, eating, a few glasses of Chardonnay, and reading. Oh, bliss.

So this will be my last entry for a little while. Right now, I’m watching all these students walk past my office as if already dressed for Daytona Beach: and the cartoon in the UNC paper today featured two students sitting down for an exam, one wearing a bikini, one holding a beer bong. (Say it with me: oh, dear.) Suffice to say we are all ready for a break. Can you believe last week this time it was about to snow?

In my absence, I’ll follow tradition and put some links that you may, or may not enjoy. Up to you:

Page Six, that perennial gossip favorite. When my name was on it last summer I almost had a heart attack.

Astrologyzone, because the stars matter. They do!

ABC, because where else can you find stories about Iraq AND Beyonce’s band preventing a hijacking? The perfect mix of frivolous and somewhat important.

And finally, for those of you who had NO idea what I was talking about yesterday, the uber-cheese festival that is America’s Next Top Model. Enjoy!

have a good week everyone!
