Not Dead Yet

I know, I haven't posted in an age. But I'm not dead (yet).

First, there was the snow. Then, there's this mysterious illness (also known as the common cold) that has had me sleeping huge amounts and feeling sorry for myself. Then, there's the fact that I got the pre-approval crap underway for home ownership. (Aside: why is it that learning that my credit score is "through the roof" made me think, "I am really a fantastic and attractive person!" as if having stellar credit is some sort of index of self-worth? I blame capitalism.) But so I've got a conference paper to write, an abstract for an MLA panel to write, crap to catch up on with two of my three classes, a boatload of job-related stuff to do, and then of course there's the whole, "now I probably really have to call one of the four realtors whose names I've got and actually start looking for a house to buy," which seems like an awfully big step, as far as I'm concerned.

But so anyway, sorry for the light posting. Have just been very exhausted and busy and sick and tired. I am not yet ready, however, to be thrown on the cart with the other dead.

Thank you for posting that clip. My day has just been made a thousand times brighter.

I really love the "It's just a flesh wound!" scene.

"I don't want to go on the cart" is a common cry in our household.

Your great article on Feb 10th was worth a week-long break!

PS -
We saw the musical version, which opens with a song and dance version of that scene. Highly recommended! The fact that the cast was led by "Dr Kildare" was just a plus.
