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.

  1. well done on generating positive discussion. something tells me you should feel better about your work than you do, but then I also know what it’s like to feel like everything ahead is uphill. stay strong!
