Chaucer guilt

3 Jul

Ah, working from home. So relaxing. About to make some calls for an article I’m working on. Technically I’m off today, but since i work 6 days a week, I don’t really have business hours for interviews. I’m excited about this one!

But while I was wasting time this morning in my den, watching the West Wing, Chaucer winked down at me. And by Chaucer, I mean the Riverside Chaucer, my big red edition. Meaning, I should get started on my thesis/independent study thing. Because gosh, when will I be able to do it during the year, with Spec going on etc?

And let me share this, via The New Yorker:

Now, an interview.

Look at “possibly related posts.”

Hm. Interesting. In fact, appalling. Thank you, WordPress, for that gem.

Meanwhile, it’s 4 a.m. and I’m home in GN dealing with major technical difficulties re this philo paper. The saga continues.

2 hours of sleep

Worse than my usual by a bit. Just got back into school via Long Island Railroad+subway. That’s why I hate going home—I’m at the point where I can’t fall asleep/work until 5 a.m., but from home, I have to be on a 7:30 train with my mom.

I’m going to take a nap now, hopefully won’t sleep through anything e.g. the meeting I missed with a professor on Friday.
