Best of 2010 - Film
Egoism in action; thus begins me end-o-year best of lists. They’re all rather incomplete, because I’m poor & busy & don’t have the time or money to read all the books, see all the films, or listen to all the albums I’d like to in a year. At any rate, the lists, loosely in order from good to best; & a capsule review or a link to my longer review. Also, the...
Merry Christmas, ya'll →
Listening to Ella’s Xmas album; bit drunk on eggnog & butterscotch schnapps + hot chocolate; sitting up reading as I wait to hear the clatter of hooves atop the roof. Tori’s version of Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, though, may be my all-time favorite holiday song. It seems to capture the sentimentality, the nostalgia, the yearning, and hazy sadness that always...

FUCK THIS SHIT YA'LL
So the joy of finishing another horrible semester of graduate school was undermined last night in that, the day of my final class (and ‘this, the day of my daughter’s wedding’—you know I can’t resist my associational humor). Feminist Inquiry, Fall 2010, bitches. It was just so clear in our last conversation that every ounce of energy I’d used trying to...

As if this weekend wasn’t heinous enough, I’ve had a fucking stye in my left eye for the past 3-4 days. It was worse than ever this morning, & I woke up seriously looking like someone had smashed the left side of my face with a baseball bat. (Was gonna post a picture, but I look so ugly that I can’t even fathom it.) WHY? WHYWHYWHY? I have to write 50 pgs this weekend;...
