I understand that Ascot is today. I may read some PG Wodehouse in celebration.

Finally did get in touch with the teachers, ran my first batch yesterday. It took as long as I thought it would, just a half hour, but I still felt terrible about asking people to stay a half hour over just for me, no compensation. I need to figure out something to do about that. Either to make myself feel less guilty, or do something to assuage my conscience. I think I'll bring them some snacks next time. Maybe that will entice them to stay and not drop out.

I've only looked at two of the questionairres so far, but it looks interesting already. Little differences in context magnify into huge differences in interpretation for different people. (It doesn't look like anyone disliked the sentences as much as my conversation pal did, thank goodness).

Farmer's market this morning: I've heard that they may have currants, and blueberries!
