I'm baaaaaaaack!

Back in the saddle again? Well, let's not get ahead of ourselves ... I've missed doing this, probably more than anybody missed reading it. Look: if you know me at all, and you do, or you wouldn't be reading this, surely, unless you're one of the two or three people a day who get here by googling Karen Allen or something (why?), you know that I'm in general not a reliable correspondent ... but I'm going to try to write at least weekly. Hell, it got me through my dissertation, am I right? (Hi Murray).

I know that the themeless rant blog is passe (sorry about the missing accent), but I still don't really have a concept in mind aside from, as I've said before, the random conversation I'd have with students before class started, back when I was in the classroom ... or, let's face it, the monologue with which I'd waste the first few minutes of class. Not wasting ... building rapport. Establishing a positive learning environment. If you will.

Anyhow, I'm shooting for once a week at least, and I'm not going to talk about work. That's about it.

Oh, and I've been watching Justified, and it's not too bad.

Justified is awesome. Raylan is adorable. The 2 girls are likable even with the accents. And I'm oddly obsessed with the theme song. Glad your back*

Whoo hoo!!!! Long live Wordshed.

Here's an idea for a post, suggested by your link (and a comment Tom made about your relationsip to Aerosmith): How about a blog about the dangers of harmonica-playing-while-driving?

Thanks, Rose, for the prompt, though "relationship to Aerosmith" might be putting it a little strong ... I'd hate to give people the wrong idea.

Summer, I have to admit that a lot of what I like about the show is the title song. It might say something about my time and place in life that I like his boss better than I like the protagonist.
