Thursday, January 24

Today is Thursday of WEEK 2 of the class. For those of you in Myth-Folklore, Thursday morning, until noon, is the grace period if you forgot to do any of the assignments that were due on Wednesday. 

Week 2 Read and Respond assignment. The Week 2 blog commenting assignment is NOT available yet; it will be available starting on Friday! The blog commenting assignment is the only assignment you cannot complete early, and that is because people will still be adding posts to their blog today, Thursday. So, after midnight tonight, that is, at 12:01AM on FRIDAY, you can do that Read and Respond assignment; you have Friday, Saturday and Sunday to finish the blog responding since it is one of those Friday/weekend assignments.

Storybook Stack. I'm still making my way through the contents of the stack, which usually does take me all week - you can check the contents of the stack here to make sure I have received your assignment. Meanwhile, if you want Storybook comments from me this week, make sure you get your assignment turned in by Friday at 8AM. That way, I can be sure to get comments back to you before the weekend!

Thursday Events on Campus. Pizza AND Star Trek! At 6:30PM, the History of Science Association will be showing "The Inner Light" from season 5 of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and then discussing history, historians, and science fiction over pizza and drinks in the History of Science Collections, 5th floor of Bizzell Library (time/location/details). Find out more about this and other events at the Campus Calendar online. The image below is a scene from this deservedly famous Star Trek episode:
