I have been trying to save up time/energy to post something meaningful, something scintillating about rereading T. E. Lawrence or the nature of art or something, but alas, that is not going to happen in the near future, so here's a quick a lowdown:

* Kitty is sick again. Her behavior is mostly normal, but she has epic diarrhea (again), and I'll have to take her to the vet tomorrow. Meanwhile, she is not so fun to cuddle, which makes her sad.

* Car is in the shop but should be back early in the week. It's lucky my parents now live in town and I can borrow their car.

* I have temp work at Academic Advising for the next seven weeks, which is good given all the unforeseen expenses of the foregoing, but will be an interesting additional 10 hours a week to fit into my schedule.

* Koreans apparently don't mind having their children tutored at 9 p.m. Do they stay up late as a culture?

* Wednesday is going to be a 14-hour work day.

* Writing time is mostly being spent formatting HBM for self-publication and wordiness-editing Perdita for reissue.

* I have been reading (attempting to read) Barthes, who I somehow managed to almost entirely miss in graduate school. I like a lot of his ideas--insofar as I can parse them--but he will write like that. You know what I mean. Also rereading Lawrence (The Mint and letters), as indicated above. He does not write like that. Thank God.

The End
