Canned Meat

Things I'm doing that shimmied a wedge between me and EWM over the weekend:
1.  Cut part of the lawn.
2.  Worked on a C's proposal.
3.  Walked around.
4.  Plowed through an emergency review of the instructor training course for eCollege and my U.  Only a few minor tune-ups along the lines of preferring higher order pedagogies (uh...fill in the blank, mult. choice?) and affirming disciplinary difference. 
5.  Sent off notes re contingent faculty in computer-mediated distance writing programs toward an upcoming statement.  Or something.
6.  Tidied a bunch of crap for a garage sale on one of the next Saturdays.  Cheap!
7.  Spruced up week seven of intro to humanities before posting the latest threads for the week that starts tomorrow. 
8.  Started reading Kathryn Fitzgerald's perfectly historical article on "Rediscovered Tradition."
9. Listened to an Elvis Costello CD.
10.  Tried to get a grip on one of Jenny's always-smart ideas over at Stupid Undergrounds. Still wondering if I got the grip.
11.  Munched on specialty pizzas tonight: chicken cordon bleu with green olives and buffalo style chicken.  D. and Ph. brought up three video tapes, let me choose.  Over Forest Gump and Being John Malkovich, I took Slingblade.  So we watched and savored the pizza.
12. Tacked about over in the corner.

Aw. What a nice thing to say! Always smart? Nah. But thanks, all the same. :)

You're welcome. I mean, extra-discursive articulations, rhetoric(ity) and affectation, post-humanist and post-communications triangle: provocative stuff. Most definitely worth the visit to Stupid Undergrounds from time to time.
