Squared Away

I found out that, in addition to teaching the SEAM section of 1101 in the Fall, I'm teaching speech again next Spring. The course coordinator seems to think I'm a pretty decent teacher.

Also, I scheduled my prelims for the first two weeks of August. They're going to sneak up on me, I know it. I should go ahead and get some diazepam for the hives. :D

Strength and Restlessness

Nine more days in this apartment. I've got a lot of my packing done already and should chill out and relax, but I'm restless and can't think about anything else except getting boxes and moving things from one place to another: can't think about prelims, can't think about the course I'm teaching this summer, can't think about the blog collection, can't think about any of the longer posts I want to write here and for Kairosnews. I want to do things like go grocery shopping and wash all my bedding, but not until I'm in the new place, which is driving me nuts too. When I'm moving, I get in this zone; I'm like a machine. I want to show off how freakishly strong I can be. That huge box of books my two friends are struggling to carry up the stairs? Give me that, I say, shaking my head and smiling. And put another one on top of it. I want my arms to look like Linda Hamilton's by the time I'm done :D:


Clarissa

Although I did like this show, I wanted to be "You Can't Do That on Television," "Today's Special," or "Pinwheel." I wonder if I'm a little more old school than this quiz...

HASH(0x8a85b54)
You are CLARISSA EXPLAINS IT ALL. She is a rad
chick with absolutely no fashion sense. If you
are a guy and chose this... you are gay.


Which old school Nickelodeon show are you?

Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy

How is it that I haven't stumbled upon the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy until now? The entries I've read so far are thorough and provide excellent overviews of issues and philosophers. See the entry for identity politics written by Cressida Heyes and the one for common knowledge by Peter Vanderschraaf.

Today's New Links

An earnest thanks to Emily for showing me this piece by Dorothy Allison titled "Notes to a Young Feminist," and a sarcastic thanks a lot to AKMA for IMing me the link to Kingdom of Loathing, the procrastinatory game I never knew I always wanted. My character is a disco bandit named Yoterlon, after my old high school D&D character, Yoterlon Doonsbern the Fair.
