What a Long Strange Trip....

So I am sorry that I have neglected this blog for so long, but I have reasonable if not good excuses. First, right after the last post I took ill. It was not consumption or anything, but it was a fun filled four days of feeling icky. It was very strange because I did not have cold symptoms or stomach flue symptoms; I simply felt crappy and tired and ran a low grade fever. I got over it, just in time because I was really working Jeff’s last good nerve with my whining. Of course I often reminded him that when he is sick he, as do all men as far as I can tell, whine like they are dying of the plague. So I spent four days in bed watching bad movies (Alexander? Honestly I don’t know what I was thinking but I would give anything to have those three hours of my life back!) and reading fun books with little to no literary value at all. Everyone worth knowing was only alright, though much too predictable and less entertaining then the Devil Wears Prada, which I am excited to see at the end of the month. That book will always hold a special place in my memories because I read it in the beach in Jamaica! Speaking of which, on the 5th Jeff and I celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary so yeah for us! We had a good time with a lobster gram from MomP, although killing the lobsters was a drama!

Of course I did not get much knitting done while I was sick, but I did manage to felt the accessories bag, and I will post those pics tomorrow in between finishing up the syllabus for summer school which starts next week and working on my Hardy chapter. Of course the working on the Hardy chapter is testing my will to find every Hardy scholar and beat him/her soundly about the head and the neck. Maybe it’s me, but I just don’t see the point of arguing with a reviewer from 1892. And I don’t means discuss the social and cultural discursive connection between reviewer and author and scholar, I mean literally arguing with a review who has been dead for like a hundred years. Oh well, this too will pass, but I do want to give a shout out to my girl Lori who is defending her diss at the end of the month! Yeah to her, and I will say that I always knew that she would rock it out and look forward to telling people “Yeah, I know her, we went to grad school together, we’re friends.”

And I leave with the good news that I have been offered and accepted a job!!! Email me or call and I will give you details! I will be back soon, but to tide you over I leave you with a project that I would like to start for Genevieve, I am open for suggestions on color ect.
