burning the midnight oil


I have just one more assignment to do this week, and it’s due tomorrow. So, tonight I plan to work late trying to get at least the first half (an essay) done.

In an effort to make myself feel good about this prospect, I lit a candle. Doesn’t it look pretty? (If you are reading this Kelly, thankyou so much for the hurracane lamp – we think it’s beautiful).

Also, tonight I learnt a new word: elucubrate, meaning “to work by candlelight”.

I guess I should get to it now huh.
