on chapped lips

I've known what I was going to title this post since just before 9:00 this morning when I was standing in line at Cougar Copy trying not to kick or cuss at the idiots in line in front of me. I'm not sure exactly what the post is about, but I do have an idea of what I want to include:
  1. I post pictures--pictures--of John Krasinski and Jake Gyllenhaal and only get two comments? Seriously? Seriously? (P.S. I love Edgy and Th. more than you right now.)
  2. My 218 is rocking workshop. I've never been so pleased with a class before. Which brings me to
  3. To kick off workshop I brought in a few of my poems that are in progress. After some really smart comments, "Millennium Bridge" is now two poems that I need to work on instead of one. But I can't work on it because I have to work on
  4. thesisgradappsacapcaproposal. Who has time fore all this? All this and
  5. Christmas shopping. If only more people were as forthcoming and subtle as Grover.
  6. Okay, enough of the annoying numbers skipping through sentences.
  7. Kapka (aka MLH, but I still think of her as Kapka), Cassie Keller, and Emily Dyer are all reading on Friday. This promises to be the best student reading ever (mostly because I won't be tempted to throw anything at any reader).
  8. This week at International Cinema: As You Like It. Next week: Devdas. Can life get any better? Only if IC were open Mondays.
  9. I should take the time to make it to 10, but since numbers have never been my thing, I'm not even going to try. I am going to end with one final jubilation: Anna is coming! And staying at my house, which now comes with heat and a vacuumed floor!

P.S. I do have chapped lips, but since its not the result of anything interesting, who cares?

I have chapped lips too. And it's also from nothing special. Kinda makes me sad.


Sadness is completely negated by your love for me. :)

Oh sure, I comment all the time and get no love, then the one time I don't comment...

And I have no idea what that word in #4 is. I looked it up in my dictionary, on Wikipedia, and even in Foxy's guide to literary allusions, all to no avail. I'm guessing that it's related etymologically to "sister" and "dap cream," but I'm not sure.

Argh. Forgot to check the email box, so you get two comments.
