Exotica Blabotica!

October 11, 2008

Can you tell that I’m blogging from Canada?  Does my typing have a slight francophone lilt, or peculiarly rounded “o” sounds? 

Yeah, I thought sooo.

So I’m headed home tomorrow, but it’s been a good, and full, conference.  Now I have to go back and work on “finishing” my paper for eventual inclusion in a edited collection.  And even though my paper generated a lot of positive discussion, I feel worse about it than I did before I came.  Maybe because I realize how much work there is to be done, and that it could go one of several ways.  Or maybe because it’s totally under-theorized.  Or maybe because I sorta feel like I always do:  that I’m a big blabby chatterface who yippity-yak-yaks to excess and tries a little too hard to be “entertaining” because I feel awkward. 

Yeah, I think it’s that.  And all the other ones, too.  I still need to shower, and pack, and get in touch with the mister back in New York, so that’s it for now.  At least I know when to shut up on in the internet.
