what a day

Feel free to ignore this post. It exists only to act as a placeholder to make sure that you know you are not forgotten and that you know that my life has once again spiraled out of control. In the immortal words of Throbbing Gristle (one of my top five bands for the last twenty-five years): "What a day what a day what a day all day…"

I returned from Ireland this weekend, where I was teaching at the University of Limerick for a few days. The commitment involved in teaching all day means that I wasn’t able to update the site during that time. I had high hopes for today, but while making my morning latte, I let the milk get too hot and it frothed too high until it overflowed the mug and spilled onto my hand, forcing me to simultaneously scream and drop the mug, whereupon it shattered into a million pieces. Alas, not only does my hand hurt like crazy, it was my favorite mug. See the image below. Yes it’s by Gary Larson. Cited under fair use and the urgent need for a new one.

If anybody has any leads on a replacement, please let me know.

 

 

Next time I promise the Real won’t poke through and you’ll get a more thought-out blog post.
