My dearest denizens of the Blogosphere, it has been quite a week. It’s been a week of events of great national importance, from the bloodless-bloodbath which was the second Obama/Romney debate to the perhaps-not-so-bloodless-bloodbath which was the Jill Zarin/Andy Cohen debate. It was a big week on campus, as we celebrated the National Day on Writing (Observed) and wrote along with other campuses across the nation. It was a big week in my classes, as we tackled parallelism, Lia Purpura’s lyric essays, and electronic literature. And it was a big week personally, as I drank too many Diet Cokes and learned that sometimes giving yourself a French manicure just isn’t worth the money you save. In other words, this week was a journey over life’s highest peaks and lowest valleys — and here are the pictures I took while I traveled.
Day 285: I really wish my cat wasn’t so very good at hiding.
Day 286: If there’s one thing I love, it’s watching some ladies love their Belk Shoe Department Social Time.
Day 287: Due to the wonders of modern technology, my mother and I were able to have a shopping date teleconference. As you might be able to tell, it didn’t go particularly well in terms of me finding clothes, but it did go well in terms of mother/daughter bonding.
Day 288: My view. Or, well, sort of my view. It wasn’t so green before Instagram.
Day 289: I stopped to get gas, looked up, and there it was, like a miraculous vision of all things wondrous: THE FAIR IS IN TOWN.
Day 290: I really love my tea-pot, but I really feel bad about having to decapitate Little Red Riding Hood every time I use it.
Day 291: Today, we held our Pizza for Prose event in honor of the National Day on Writing (Observed). Here’s the prose we got.
