Sydney begins TAing tomorrow, and I start teaching on Monday. It’s official: school’s here. And we’re not ready for it. We haven’t been to the garden in ages, I don’t have enough of my syllabus mapped out, we intended to read approximately 50 more books (each), and, oh yeah, we haven’t spent nearly enough time in the hammock for school to really be here.
On a different note, I’ve discovered (during my teaching prep) that Eudora Welty’s really cool. When I first read some of her stories, I though, “Meh,” but now I’m completely wound up over her stuff. If any of you are interested, I’ve got lectures and analyses and cool stuff to share, and Sydney and the cat don’t seem interested. 🙂
