Gotten kickass Christmas presents, including but not limited to: a skull (ersatz), a nice green laser to put a dot one half mile away atop a tower, some strange water purifying UV wand thing, and a top hat. Note: I look damn fine in a top hat. And so tall. I'm waiting for it to come back.
Finished one semester, applied for new courses, and wound up with completely different courses than I asked for, thanks to unpredictable enrollment.
Began teaching World Literature 1. Enlil is my copilot. Sing it Sappho. Yay Iliad War Porn with crappy Gamer Gods!
Developed an unwise admiration of the Dresden Dolls. If I'd heard them 10 years ago, I'd have bought a bowler hat and face paint. Wait--I have a bowler hat.
Watched good movies. Best in the last two weeks: El Orfanato/ The Orphanage (A fine fine film) and 3:10 to Yuma (ditto, despite my usual Western antipathies). I recommend both to my friends who enjoy anguish and / or westerns.
Found myself swearing like a sailor. Friday, I will have a hard time not going into class and saying, "Oedipus. That motherfucker."
