Ok, it's not that kind of dirty little secret, my pervy readers (and pervy googlers, too, I'm certain). No, it's this.
Right now, I am sitting here meticulously editing and re-organizing The Notebook. I was chatting with my work-BFF about this project, and she looked at me like I'm insane. (A. The Notebook isn't due until next month, B. We both kind of doubt anybody actually reads the thing.)
So why am I doing this?
Well, I didn't realize it until just a minute ago. I'm doing this because if I'm going to stay here I want to win the outstanding award for junior faculty. I'm such a nerd. And a little bit of an over-achiever. And maybe even I have some secret desire to take over the world. Though how fucking around with this book will achieve that I'm not certain.
