Ah, my faith in Faulkner…

Ah, my faith in Faulkner is vindicated! I've been reading _Absalom, Absalom!_, as I mentioned a few days ago, I think, and I also mentioned that I thought the beginning was rather problematic. Well, I still have issues with how he implemented the flashbacks in the beginning, but from about halfway through the novel to the end, I think the damn thing is flawless. Utterly incredible, impossible to put down, etc. and so on, makes me want to go back and reread _The Sound and the Fury_ (and only my stack of unread books is preventing me from doing so immediately); just incredibly masterful. I surrender. I will read anything this man has written. In fact, I plan to read it all. Including the screenplays.

Got up early this morning, went down to the cafe, spent the morning tech writing. Feeling a little better as a result. I've been very frustrated with myself for the last couple of days, feeling like I'm not getting as much done as I should be. Bills piling up on my desk haven't helped. I *hate* being in debt, but I'd best get used to it, since it'll take at least a few years to pay off the grad school debt. You'll undoubtedly hear me grumbling more about this.

Going to head off to campus now; meet with Ginu and hopefully find some material of hers that we can use for Clean Sheets. Should be fun. Hope y'all are having good Mondays (or as good as Mondays can be, at any rate. :-) The tea party went absolutely wonderfully, btw. Great fun on Saturday. I think I'll try to have one every month that there isn't another party. I think I probably socialize a little too much. :-) Kevin undoubtedly thinks so. Ah well...
