Works in Progress

  1. The new Harry Potter movie: nicely shot, the actors do their best with the material, but it is sloooooooooow. Funny to see them all as they grow up: the Harry actor is tiny like Mini-Me, Hermione is hot, and Ron has been pumping entirely too much iron to be a convincing gawky nerd any more. Oh, and Malthoy looks like the lead singer of any emo band.
  2. On days on which one is exhausted and has one of those awful all-day slow-acting hangovers, what does one do? One hikes around campus from library to library in the name of putting on a convincing show of productivity.
  3. The worst thing is when it's the wrong kind of tired for coffee to help. I mean, obviously, there has to be coffee at the start of the day, but further coffee is to no avail. I think I might go to the Stevenson Café and get a too-expensive juice drink here in a bit.
  4. Did I mention that I'm now the web editor of H-Ideas? It's funny how low the bar is set in the Humanities for recruiting techs. Apparently, I'm good enough because I know how to use SFTP to upload things, I have aging HTML skills, and I have a couple of WYSIWYG web editors on my laptop.
  5. Last week of my Euro Int class - tomorrow is poststructuralism and Foucault, Thursday is the final. And then I start my next class the next week. No rest for the mostly harmless.

Ahem, it's Malfoy. Draco Malfoy. And yes, he should be a guest player with Bright Eyes.

Like I said: I never read the books. :P

Great to hear about the H-Ideas job, my man.
