It is that time of year again

Well, I've hit the point in the semester where I am so over my head in keeping up with my classes and getting my grading done that I bribe my students with candy. Today they get their choice of saltwater taffy or those Halloween peanutbutter chews.

Update: According to my students - Halloween peanutbutter chews are the worst Halloween candy ever invented [these are things wrapped in oranage or black paper].

When my students are really getting antsy, I bring homemade cookies. Nothing like bribery!

Apparently, the new guy in our department brought candy in for his classes today and it was the 'good' candy. Real chocolate - candy with names on the wrappers - etc. My students let me know that my candy really suxed by comparison.

I wish I could bake.

Your students are a sad pathetic bunch. Mary Janes (the peanut butter Halloween stuff) is the absolute BEST Halloween candy. Most of the other stuff is available all year long and is common stuff.
