Now with pictures that have only tertiary reasons for appearing with this post.
The good news (for me): I’m nearly done with my Shakespeare paper. And surprisingly, it doesn’t suck. The topic is homosociality and eroticism in the sonnets, a topic entirely overdone but interesting nonetheless.
The bad news (for me): I still have to edit and write a conclusion for another paper and compose an abstract explaining the dogs pooping project with matching Powerpoint. Neither are difficult, but I’m ready to lay around on the couch and knit something. All must be finished this evening.
Additional blogging-related news: I’m in the process of banning someone from the blog, not because he was particularly abusive, but because the air of bigotry and ignorance emanating from his comments so got on my nerves. I rather like the peaceful, witty disagreements we have on this blog (even though the occasional naysayer has his or her fifteen minutes of engagement) and resent someone coming along to stir up trouble. His time was up and, goddammit, I pay good money for this thing.
I have no problem with dissent, but attempting to hijack comment threads for one’s own amusement under the guise of reeducation is disrespectful and goes against the unspoken rule of blogging conduct. I think it irritates most webmasters, including this one.
In other blogging-related news, I’m considering running another silly blogging contest. If anyone is interested in perhaps being a judge and helping compile votes and whatnot, contact me for further information. My contact information can be found under the related link in the sidebar. This one will be much bigger than the last.
