Since, obviously, I haven't had the time to play with the blog much lately -- it must be time to completely crash it!! Seriously, I'll be fixing up breaking praying updating to Wordpress 2.5 sometime this weekend. Keep yer fingers crossed.

No, I have not abandoned the blog-- just been a little busier than usual these days with a few things that cannot wait. So.. while you're waiting to catch up on all the news (heh), I hereby direct you to one of my absolute favorite sites on the innernets --Caption This! The captions that the commenters come up with are just fantastic. This page in particular brings us one of the best (and scariest) 'shops I've seen in a loooong time:

It could have been much worse. Instead of braving 40 degrees and occasional sunshine, I could have been here on Friday. Glad it was them, and not *us*. Sorry. NOT.

Right now, I am mired in the labyrinth that is U.S. foreign policy toward the Middle East and Africa in the post-WWII period. It's great. And ya know? *I* woulda done it differently. Hindsight is a wonderful thing. Heh.

Continuing on the "cellphone" thread, I need to explain something. If I'm not answering your calls, there's a very good reason. It's not that I'm ignoring you. I can't figure out how. Centro™ smartphone Oh dear. This thing has the internets built in, and a phone that announces it's smarter than I is just a teensy kick to my technologically-challenged ego. And I still can't answer it when it rings.

Checking in [again] on the just-finished class to see if grades are in, I find this on the front page/ announcements section:
The best term paper this term, and perhaps the best I have ever gotten for MH 403, was by [yours truly] on American domestic life in the Cold War. She drew my attention to literature I was not familiar with including at least one article which I will use in future versions of this course. She showed how Americans reacted to the bomb and how that changed over time, how Americans were mobilized and mobilized themselves, how the ideology and circumstances of the Cold War shaped family values.
I'm just shaking here; I cn baerly type. I could have flunked the course and still been excited!!

Life in Wisconsin just took a break for the press conference, carried live on probably every single station in the state. Those of us who weren't already crying in our cheese curds shed a few during Favre's emotional goodbye. It sure was a fun run, wasn't it?

Along with all of the wailing and gnashing of teeth over yesterday's tragedy... wasn't there a Presidential Primary somewhere yesterday? Not that you'd know it by listening/ watching news reports in our great Dairy State.....
