IT'S SNOWING AND SLEETING IN TEXAS!!!! Yay! I'm a happy girl, and I'm prayin' like a mofo that school is cancelled tomorrow and I don't have to present my paper in bib (think Jehovah endorses prayers like that?). The paper is finished, I'm suprisingly happy with it, but I still don't like presenting...so THERE! Oh, and I'm presenting my oral trad paper at the graduate school scholarly club meeting thingy Friday night. *half-hearted yay*
I'm feeling the end-of-semester excitement creeeepin' on up. I'm titilated by the idea of Christmas shopping, laying around in my pajamas, hangin' out with D more, buying The 40-Year-Old Virgin on DVD, READING WHATEVER I WANT, and doing some work. Work? (look around) Workawhat?
Yes, I'm going to do some work over the holidays. MELUS (Multi-Ethnic Literature of the United States) has a special issue coming out on multi-ethnic concerns in graphic narrative, and I'm going to try to work up a paper for it. I don't know that I'll have time, but I'm gonna try. And there's an award for the best paper dealing with folklore at the conference I'll be attending in February, so if I wanna submit my long paper for that I have to get it polished and buffed before January 26th. I'm addicted to this scholarly thing, bitches. I admit it.
Other to-do's for the holidays:
1) Get off my ass and 2) stop eating so much takeout.
TV: The Fellowship of the Ring
Music: Majorette..."Girl Like Me"
Reading: Whatever the fuck I want...after this weekend.
In my head: Cotton mouth and sugar plum fairies (somehow I know in my heart that they're purple).
