An Archive An Archive Moving House February 27th, 2008 It’s time for me to pick up stakes and mosey along to a new URL for my blog and a new blogging identity. This blog is now closed — an archive and not an abode. Thanks for all the memories! Posted in personal | Comments Off Oh, Goodie! February 20th, 2008 My Forecastfox just raised a pop-up to alert me that the temperature’s risen to a balmy -18 Celsius. Let’s just say that they don’t call our break week in February “Spring Break” for a very good reason. Brr! Posted in personal | Comments Off XKCD Strikes Again February 20th, 2008 ‘Cause, after all, what’s more satisfying? Sleep or online flame wars? Wait, don’t answer that!

Pleasures of Academe February 19th, 2008 A quiet day in the office enabled me to get ahead on my marking and enjoy a lunch date with a new colleague. I even had the leisure to track down another useful article for background to use in the expansion of last fall’s conference paper into a full-fledged article. Yes, February break has arrived! Posted in academia | Comments Off Rec: PHD Comics February 18th, 2008 I’ve been grading a stack of assignments that range from the near-sublime to the nearly ridiculous. I have to say that today’s PHD Comics: You know you’ve been grading too long when… sadly captures the feeling of someone who’s been grading!

Posted in fandom | 6 Comments ? Taking the Good February 13th, 2008 I got some rather lovely news at work this week. This is great because otherwise I’ve been: nursing a nasty cold that involves constant post-nasal drip dealing with new snow and old snow (courtesy of Canada Post deciding to shovel it from in front of the mailbox to in front of our driveway — breaking by-laws merrily along the way) driving much too much to get people places and errands done working hard to get a new collaborative network underway on my campus not having as much time as I’d like to work on my next article Posted in random, personal, academia, domesticity | 1 Comment ? No Longer Pending Approval February 8th, 2008 Heard from one of the editors of the anthology to which I submitted an article in December. They’re both quite happy with it as they mark up for the minor changes needed. Hooray! That’s a relief because even though they’d approved the proposal and seemed interested in the chapter draft, I know that’s only the first step on what can be a long and frustrating road. Now I just need to think what’s the best sub-category on my CV to reflect that change. Should it be listed as “Forthcoming” or is there some other phrasing that sounds best? I ask because my dossier goes before a university committee on Monday and it’d be nice to give them that updated information (as well as copies of my other work that came out the end of December). Usually I just go with “Forthcoming” until it’s actually “In Press” or “In Print” but it doesn’t hurt to get some advice now, does it? Posted in academia | 7 Comments ? Feste Lente February 8th, 2008 Make haste slowly — it’s good advice. Our U is growing — offering more and fuller programs at a new (to us) location. The road to that hasn’t been easy — some administrators hoped to fast-track this. I have to admit that I was one of the ones pulling the brakes, not because I don’t want to see this growth, but that I want to see it done correctly. We’re already confronted problems that result from the difficulty of communicating well across hundreds of miles and there’s a disquieting feeling that the growth is unthinking. With no tenure-track faculty currently at the remote site and hopes to offer programs with a bare handful of new hires, the committee that I was on asked for a little time and a lot more consultation. At that point, I couldn’t feel happy supporting the nebulous proposal. Read the rest of this entry ? Posted in academia | Comments Off What Time of Day Are You? February 4th, 2008 This amuses me, mostly because my schedule usually gets a great deal more complicated around 3:15 in the afternoon. Posted in memes | 5 Comments ? ?
