4. Beloved canines, cherished friends
"I'm sorry, son, but they really have to go."
"Awww, c'mon, dad! Look how hard they're trying to hang on! Can't I keep them forever and ever?"
"Don't worry. You'll have two new ones soon."
"But that's just not the same, you know..."
"It's part of growing up. You're just going to have to deal with it."
"But they've been with me since I was a kid!"
"All things must come to an end. You'll understand that when you're older."
"But how am I going to smile without Lucas and Kaygee?"
"You named your _teeth_?!"

3. Class today
discussion. # I finished all of the feedback today. Yay! What worked: the first lab went very well. What could be improved: Move how-to-zip-files and demonstration to first week of classes.
- CS110: Review of efficiency with a 5-point quiz. Many people need to
review. Hmm. What am I doing wrong? Maybe I should use more exercises and fewer lectures. How can I make exercises easy to do in class? Not sure if proceeding to next topic (correctness, ending with induction) was the best thing to do.
- CS139.3: Had fun finding two simple data structures problem.
However, Mark was the only one who could solve it within given timeframe. Spent half an hour setting up PC2 and getting the hang of things. Next time, won't have that problem. Should also release notes on how to do input and output. Crash course in Java. Have assigned problems for student discussion. Will probably allow newbies to work in groups first.
2. More experiments with sausages and potato soup
Fortunately, I had all the food I needed at the dorm. (Aha! Finally, a well-stocked pantry.) I wanted to give potato soup another shot, with minor twists. Here's what I did:
Sausage and potato soup (sorta)
- 130g sausage (I tried it with Hungarian) - 1/4 onion - 1 tablespoon butter - 2 medium potatoes - 1/2 cup water - 1/2 cup milk
1. Wash and scrub the potatoes. Prick them with a fork, rub them with
oil, and pop them into the microwave for 9 minutes on high. (Actually, just cheat and use the "Potatoes" setting on your microwave.)
2. While the potatoes are cooking, mince the onion and throw it into a
saucepan with the butter. Brown the onion on medium-high heat. (Or whatever. Just try not to burn them.)
3. Slice the sausage thinly. Cook the sausages (in the saucepan also,
or elsewhere) until you're satisfied they're edible.
4. Cool the potatoes by running water over them or sticking them into
the refrigerator or freezer. Scoop out the insides carefully, putting the potato bases aside for tomorrow's breakfast.
5. Mash the potato insides in a bowl. Add water. Mix thoroughly.
6. Put mixture in saucepan and boil until potato mixture looks thick.
7. Add milk until consistency looks almost like the creamy soups you
8. Dump assorted seasonings into soup. Experiment with sage, rosemary,
salt, pepper, and anything that says "Use with potatoes" on it.
It was acceptable, although the Hungarian sausages weren't as spicy as I had hoped they'd be.
Hmm. I didn't really taste the onions. Maybe I should try more onions or cut them out entirely.
I plan to use the potato shells for Egg and Corned Beef Potato Surprise tomorrow. It's another experiment. I haven't quite figured out if I'm going to
- scramble the egg - keep the egg whole
- microwave the whole thing - cook the mixture before putting it into the potato
I think I'll go for frying the corned beef, mixing cooked corned beef with one egg, then pouring the mixture into the potatoes and cooking for 1.5 ~ 2 min.
1. Public apology about posting opinion
For the record, I find my co-faculty's slides to be fantastically wonderful and I'm really glad they're available for use. In fact, the slide set I use is almost exactly the same as the standard ones, with the exception that I add more obvious breaks because I often forget to, umm, _breathe_ while discussing topics. My modifications are ways for me to address my limitations, not theirs.
I'd love to hear about any questions, comments, suggestions or links that you might have. Your comments will not be posted on this website immediately, but will be e-mailed to me first. You can use this form to get in touch with me, or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
