Papers, Papers Everywhere and Not a Drop to Drink

Haha -- that is NOT the way the quote goes... but whenever it's essay-grading time, I always feel like I'm surrounded, smothered and encompassed by mounds and mountains of paper. 

Let me see if I can find the real quote!

Water, water, everywhere,
Nor any drop to drink.

It's from Coleridge -- "Rime of the Ancient Mariner."  Although I must be honest -- I'm pretty sure I heard it first from Gene Wilder's crazy-haired Willy in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

Probably my favorite movie of all time.  :)
