Been quiet around these here parts lately, and by these parts I mean my blog. THESE parts (gesturing to myself as I sit in front of a computer) not so much…
So, quick recap:
I finished a session at one university and began a semester at another. The second one is the one who gave me the offer, which I have since declined, preferring instead to walk out on an insane branch of faith with the first institution. Though I declined the offer from the second place, I am still teaching, and will hopefully continue at least part time there. The first place should let me know within the next few weeks about the position there for the Fall, so…fingers crossed. Knock on wood. Stroke your rabbit foot…whatever.
My current class is a hellish four-night-a-week-for-three-hours one. It’s Cultural Anthropology, though, so high interest, both for me and for the students. We watched “Whale Rider” the other day. They were weeping.
Da Fam is fine and St. Adelaide the Righteous is being shuttled from summer camp to VBS to trips with grandparents to various and sundry pools. She’s such a jet-setter. Isaiah the Prophet had his first haircut. I was weeping.
And moi? I continue to throw things at the TV when Obama comes on, or when Univision decides to blather about “anti-immigration groups”, and to watch what’s happening in Iran closely, and to wonder when the sky will fall.
So, all’s well. How’ve you been?
