OK, one last quote from the Undergraduate Diaries, because I just couldn't resist. This one comes from the middle of a completely loony but extensively-worked-out theory that The Graduate is basically an updated medieval romance. (Among other things, Mrs. Robinson is apparently an evil sorceress, and the bourbon she offers Ben is really a love potion.)

... and oh, by the way, the car fulfills the same functions as a knight's horse*...

* Means of transit, status symbol, and occasional extension of the penis.


Unrelated, but awesome, is this YouTube clip: The Lego Trojan War.

It will be inferred from this that I have been doing absolutely none of the things I swore I was going to do this week, like keeping up with the summer reading and figuring out how the hell I am going to move all my stuff a third of the way across the country. Eee.

Well, but you did entertain me enormously with that link. I might just have to use that in my Scary Course next semester!

I think I want to teach an epic poetry course just so I can use that link! Well, maybe not, since I don't know anything about any epics except Paradise Lost and maybe Beowulf, but I'm definitely tempted.

Hurrah for procrastination!

...uh, that is all.
