A message I just sent to our department faculty:
I know it’s ridiculous timing, and the University scheduling committee needs to take a close look at this, but PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU GET YOUR GRADES FOR GRADUATING STUDENTS IN BY MIDNIGHT TONIGHT. All other grades are due by Monday at midnight.
Sorry for the all caps, but I am on call tomorrow for anyone who does not get their grades in on time and frankly I don’t want to have to field calls while watching Star Wars with my son.
So be kind to my son and get your grades in on time.
*I'm an admitted Star Wars dork. The first trilogy defined my childhood--Episode IV came out when I was 7. And John still occasionally calls me Chewbacca, I guess because I'm tall, hairy and only speak in grunts.
