Due to one of those unbloggable crises that departments have from time to time, I have been spending most of my time thinking about things other than this blog. (The crisis is of the "help, I'm chairing the relevant committee" variety, not the "help, an asteroid is coming directly at me" variety. Although, come to think of it...) Also, I have an slightly overdue article--or, at least, I'm pretty sure it's overdue--which is staring at me with soulful eyes, even though it's Just. About. Finished! (Cue my father: "You've been saying this article is just about finished for several weeks now." But it is! Really!) Thanks to those soulful eyes ("Mommy, why don't you clean up my footnotes?"), I feel horribly guilty every time I even look at this blog. (You cannot imagine the guilt I feel at this very second. Trust me. Or don't.) And I have to apply for gen ed credit for a new course I'm teaching next year.
(Which is another way of saying: more regular posting to resume next week. Because I have to write other stuff.)
