  • Wrapped up Bazerman and Prior's What Writing Does and How It Does It (which if you say it aloud must be sung to to R.E.M.'s "How The West Was Won and Where It Got Us") and put down a solid two pages to frame Wednesday morning's methodologies seminar.
  • Parsed and coded yet another issue of CCC for CCC Online.
  • Lessoned Ph. on hurricane naming (re: How'd it skip from Katrina to Rita?) and the reason USA Today doesn't carry local obituaries (for some kind of wacky English assignment).
  • Looked up from reading long enough to catch the climactic ending to Northwestern and Penn State (PSU, 34-29), after which JoePa mumbled incoherently to the sportscaster about playing a redshirt freshman QB. Went something like this: "What am supposed to do?  My wife can't get out there and play."  Um, okay. Good luck with your team there, Coach.


  • Crack Mitchell's Picture Theory.
  • Flesh out the prompt for project II.
  • Do more than rearrange a few sentences in the conference talk creeping up, early October.
  • Leave the apartment.

Heh heh. Joe Pa. Man do they love that guy here. I'm still looking for the pasta supposedly shaped like Joe Pa's head. BTW, his wife (Sue) is also known as Sue Pa.

What a country.

I figured he's kind of celebritized in central PA, but pasta.... It was odd enough for me to have the volume on at the end of the game (usually on mute while reading, and I don't think I've ever watched Northwestern v. PSU), but I expected something sage and profound (or intelligible at the very least) from Joe, instead something about his wife not playing QB this season. I don't know, you might want to rethink seeking out that pasta--or just serve it to guests before having some for yourself.
