Ahh, Los Angeles. I was gone for ten days and now I'm back and I have like eighty thousand hours of television to catch up on so don't anybody tell me what happened on anything.

I was so jetlagged I fell asleep at 7pm and woke up at 4 am. I didn't even shower or anything, and I don't ever go without a shower.

I don't think that before today there had ever been a day in my life where I'd cleaned things before the sun was up. But since I left my window open ten days worth of LA soot had landed on my sheets and I was appalled at the amount of dirty dishes I had left myself to clean.

I only have just over a week left before I have to go back to work. I gotta say, spending a week in paradise is a fine way to get up the energy for a new semester. And this time I get to teach the Maltese Falcon and the accompanying unit on film noir.

In the meantime, here is another video from the Moments Before series.


  1. I'm gonna be gone for 3 weeks in Saudi Arabia on Nov/Dec with no laptop. Ugh. I can't live without my daily intake of the NYT and the HuffPo. It's gonna be harrrrrdddd. AND I hope I can see The Changeling before I go overseas, too.

  2. Good luck and have fun! Bring back some oil.


Please leave a name, even if it's a fake name. And try not to be an asshole.
