Bad news

You are all fated, at least for the time being, to sit in puddles of your own sweat, stupefied into somnolence while watching my face getting redder and redder as I pontificate a mere few feet in front of you.

In other words, there is apparently not another room available, though if someone else switches somewhere, one may yet come up.

Of course, the question will be then, why did they switch? We might be out of the frying pan and into the fire.

So to speak.

My advice: wear layers.

Blogs are sprouting like mushrooms

Check them out, via the sidebar. Anyone having any difficulties, contact me. Or one of the people in the class who have already set theirs up, some of whom, as it turns out, are veteran bloggers.

No word yet on the request to change the room.

Re. presentations: I will ask everyone next class to sign up for a particular play, so you might want to spend a little time this week recruiting a group and deciding when and on what you would like to present. Feel free to email me or leave a comment with your preferred choice(s). The early bird, and all that.

I think this is going to be a good class.

Weblogs

[I moved the assignments over to the sidebar so they would be more accessible. See Presentations, Essay, and Weblog (comments for the latter still attached to this post)].

More importantly, blogging is interactive — you can leave comments to any post — and so this blog can serve as a venue for continuing the conversations we will have in class.
