I am sitting on a stack, 70 high, of term papers this weekend. I wish you were here to help me grade them. Especially since you are all smarter than I am. Case in point: in my last post I casually used the word irregardless, without even knowing the controversy associated with the illogical double negatives in the prefix and suffix. (See comment section for explanation.) Well, I fell off my grammar pedestal and scraped my syntax, but I'm finding my way back again. But still (or irregardless-if you prefer non-standard forms), I wish all you highly intelligent readers would form a committee and come on over to help me grade my term papers.

But then again, this weekend is really not the best time for red pens and furrowed brows. Sinterklaas is on his way on the evening of December 5th. I'm pretty certain he cares nothing for grammar and will leave me candy, despite any of my shortcomings. I'll shine up my shoes and hope for the best.
I'll also be making this Dutch soup that I posted about last year. It's one of my favorites, especially with those melted cheese toasts on top.
And everyone will get a chocolate initial by their plate, in keeping with tradition. This one is for my dad. So, put out your shoes because here comes Sinterklaas.
You can read all about the Dutch traditional holiday here.
And have a merry feast of Sinterklaas tonight.
Thanks for being such a lovely group of readers.
Be back again soon with Christmas give away ideas.
