Once again, I've been in TCB mode and so I haven't been feeling much urge to blog. Yes, I do want to blog about the male older/female younger professor thing, but I haven't found a way to do it yet. It's percolating. And then as for everything else, well, I don't know.
Ooh, here's something some of you might be interested in (but if you're not interested in the Potter then skip to the next paragraph): I was rereading the last Potter last night, and I realized (as I'm sure that many of you already had) that the Half-Blood Prince's book was from around 50 years ago, which is also when Voldemort was in school at Hogwarts. If the book belonged to Snape's mother, I wonder whether she and Voldemort knew one another (a), and what happened to her (b). This adds a whole interesting layer to the snape stuff, and it really necessitates us finding out more about his backstory, I think. The main question is, is Snape Voldemort's love child?
Ok, enough of that nonsense. Other than that, I have been shepherding my students through their first formal papers, grading, coming up with a presentation rubric, I've got two meetings with my dean upcoming that I probably should prepare for in some fashion, though I'm not sure exactly how to do so as I don't entirely know why I'm involved in these meetings, the job market stuff, blah blah blah.
See? Not interesting blogging material. I suppose I will ask a question, though, of those of you who continue to read the non-interesting me: What are your thoughts on D.H. Lawrence? Love him? Hate him? Somewhere in between?
(I'm asking for a reason, but I don't want to reveal it until after people answer.)
