And you thought my blog posts were too long
Just finished typing up the last of my comments on the eleven seminar papers I received this semester, and learned to my surprise that the document “finalpapers.10” is fifteen thousand words long. And now I have to write that paper on Rorty, without making the same damn mistake I always make. So I’ll pick up the arguments in the previous thread (and many other threads!) eventually—but right now, I have to get back to work churnin’ out prose. It’s just what we do around here, I guess.
In the meantime, here’s Jamie on the dance floor, from a dear colleague’s Saturday-night birthday-party bash:
Night fever, night fever, he knows how to do it. Here he is, prayin’ for this moment to last, livin’ on the music so fine, borne on the wind, makin’ it his.
