A last-minute medical leave means I'll likely be teaching a survey course in January. Yay for work, but it means I'll be writing lectures like a lunatic for the next several weeks. If I can have two-thirds done by the time the class starts, I'll feel good. But it does mean my own research will be put on hold for a good month. It's also a US post-45 basic lecture class, and on a lot of that stuff I can just babble off-the-cuff if need be (so, kids, let's talk about the Warren Commission …).
Endut! Hoch Hech!

I feel that, had he lived, John Lennon would have loved Donkey Kong.

Please tell me you're going to put a very anti-boomer slant on it.

I try not to be obvious about my interpretations, but don't worry, the Boomers' narcissistic, incompetent fingerprints will be dusted and exposed.

Forgot to post, but I did it! Graduated with a 3.95 GPA. Won't be getting the diploma until February apparently. But I am done!

Probably just working. The US government decided to declare war on grad students.

Fan-fucking-tastic, Gene.

I wonder if more Americans will be applying to Canadian grad programs now (tho I'm not how the tax rules apply).

Many congratulations Gene.

Stephen King glares at you from the front row, arguing the Warren report is sound.
