I’ve been once again wonderfully schooled in my comments! I really like how smart and articulate my readers are; I will choose to believe this means I am doing something to attract such people, which reflects well upon me, even though all I did to deserve this particular schooling was declare that The Revenant was [&#

It’s a new year! LAST YEAR Last year–which due to my profession I can’t help sort of blobbily thinking of as Fall semester 2015-Fall semester 2016–a lot of shit happened. You get to a point in your life where you feel like everything is just kind of the same all the time, and then a […]

Hello, children, hello It finally got cold and snowed, sort of. It happened right when we got back from our Christmas trip to Phoenix. The trip, like many family christmas odysseys, was tiring, and then there’s that thing where when you’re finally in the airport starting to make your way back home, you just feel

Okay y’all, so after being brutally schooled in my comments section I decided to give the dishwasher another good old college try, because I pride myself on being open to criticism and to the idea that I am wrong, and in fact, in my professional life, at least, “feeling constantly like I am wrong” is [R

Once a year the dining zone on campus gives away all its food for free all day. It’s crazy. I didn’t understand it the first time I heard about it. I thought maybe it meant free samples, or like you got a free drink with your meal. Or maybe you had to go through some […]

We were sitting around yesterday, ranting and raving, as usual, about how much we hate Black Friday and how bizarre the whole scenario is. I keep imagining scholars of the future trying to make sense of it: “Every year they had a special day of quiet contemplation during which they ate turkey, even though it […]

Oh! But I also forgot to tell you about the Cider Festival we went to last weekend! I mean, I may be filled constantly with career-based anxiety but in other ways I am TRULY LIVING THE DREAM, it’s worth keeping in mind! As you know, we have this enormous apple tree. We have decided that […]

I am at my discipline’s big yearly conference. It is interesting to look back on the ten years (!!) I have been attending this conference and to sort of assess the changes in my life by examining the changes in my relationship to it (the conference (also my life)). At first this conference was fun, […]

Hello my dear, dear friends, What a wild ride it has been indeed, lo this long and dreary month of February. It was cold again, then nice again, then we had an ice storm, then the wind blew so hard I truly thought we would die. The Night Of The Dread Winds I slept nary […]

Well this year’s snubs n’ flubs season rolled around and I didn’t even realize it was Oscar night until Steve texted me instructing me to be at his house by 5:00. Like most sane people, I have a love-hate relationship with the Oscars that I would describe as 99% hate and 1% love, with a […]

My parents just celebrated their 40th anniversary! Because the nature of the parent-child relationship is that of unending self-sacrifice to overweening narcissism, and because it remains essentially impossible to truly imagine your parents having a life before you came along, I can only keep thinking of it in terms of myse

this Elizabeth Kolbert series about extinction is BLOWING MY MIND. I think this is the most important thing I have read since I learned how to read. It is actually amazing because just a few weeks ago we were wondering suddenly about what ancient people thought when they found fossils. Like, did the Greeks find […]
