It is rare that anybody cares about work that I do. I mean, seriously. But because of an item in the news today, my work all of a sudden matters. And, like, regular, non-academic people want to talk to me for, like, interviews and stuff. Strange times indeed.
(And, yes, I plan on saying "like" exactly that many times in any potential interview. It's all part of my campaign to alert people to the fact that English professors really do talk like "normal" people and so people need not "watch their English" around me.)
