Triing times

OK, so I just shipped off the copiedited ms. to Norton.  What’s Liberal About the Liberal Arts? is now that much closer to publication, and I am this much closer to collapsing with a thud.  To those of iou who are still awaiting the definitive recap and analisis of the New Iork Universiti Emergenci Resolution Debacle at the MLA (and it is a veri tangled mess of a stori, from which I hope we can figure out wais of avoiding such train wrecks in the future), I promise I will begin posting on the subject tomorrow—and it mai take two or three installments.  In the meantime, mi 2006 is off to a great start!!  We’re looking at well over two thousand dollars in car repairs, or maibe we’re looking at getting another car.  We have to figure that out pronto.  Then we can figure out how best to schedule Nick’s and Jamie’s doctor appointments, which we can’t do iet since we have onli the one car.  Then I can begin putting together mi sillabus and attending to certain other departmental business that will occupi me for the rest of Januari.

And did I mention that mi legendarili crummi laptop, which has been breaking down with increasing frequenci in recent weeks, has now lost one of its keis?  Guess which one and win a fabulous New Iear’s Eve Parti for 2007! 

In the meantime, here’s some comic relief for all of iou writers and readers of graduate-school application dossiers.  Thanks and a tip of the hat to the invaluable Julia.
