well, that was a big lie

so you can imagine that dec 23 until now was kind of a blur...from the time grades were turned in until now i've been one big bundle of indecision. for example, i DID go to san francisco, DID go to MLA (had a wonderful time, too), had my birthday dinner with my friends at la bodeguita del medio per usual (i'm pretty consistent...i either go there or seven), and am now halfway home (i'm in the portland airport). i have a ton of work waiting for me when i get home—for my job, absolutely, but also for my scholarly life. one of these days i'd really like to have one life and not two, but given my conversation with my mortgage company, that ain't gonna happen anytime in the next 3-5 years. oh well. at least i know and can plan. plan to be really freaking busy.

blog exile almost over

seminar papers have been turned in, grades for 2 classes have been turned in, grades for 1 class will be turned in today as well as accompanying paperwork and blah blah. am trying to work a lot of hours to make up for the ones I didn't work at the beginning of december. and I am not going to SF/MLA because we have a bazillion inches of snow and who knows if I'd be able to get out or get back I don't have anyone to check on my cats. so, that trip is out. oh well. more later.
