Writing -- more progress

Today I:
1) Mailed a final version of my history area paper.... yea --- now, I just hope it is good enough and that the cuts I made didn't cut what they really liked... waiting is SOOOOO hard.

2) Went shopping for t-shirts.... and spent a bundle as my favorite store was having a sale... but, it is ALL t-shirts -- mostly nice ones I can wear to the conference next week and to teach in those nasty hot days of mid-August...

3) Went to the grocery store -- dinner tomorrow is going to be yummy mushroom and widrice soup and grilled cheese sandwiches on good bread...

4) Revised a lot on my ethics area paper -- which will also be part of the dissertation, so it feels like I'm getting double done..

Tonight we are going to friend's house to watch a World Cup game on TIVO -- we are bringing Pappa Murphy's and he's supplying the big screen TV... sounds like a good way to relax after a productive day.

Tomorrow I think I'll have a coffee shop day.... so Wednesday I can review the paper one more time and send it.

I also need to come up with a topic to do my "teach using debate" thing next week -- any suggestions?? The problem is that I need something with plausible arguments on both sides --i.e. arguments that will be plausible for a bunch of pretty liberal teachers.... in Utah.... I prefer current issues challenges -- and am leaning toward euthanasia, as the arguments are pretty intuitive and I'm pretty sure I can come up with the research for it fairly easily...

Same-sex marriage is pretty hot in Utah right now due to the dominant church sending a strong signal they were in favor of the definition of marriage amendment that did not pass in Congress. Might get more of a debate than you bargained for though.
