I have occasionally read the blog Bitch Ph.D.
. For some reason, I ended up reading a whole ton of it in the last two days, including this series of poly w/kids posts
. And their comments. So that's where my last freaked-out post comes from (on the Chicago Moms' Blog), and also why I haven't gotten my Tamil homework done yet. Highly recommended, though I think she and I will have to mostly agree to disagree about cheating. (Well, not exactly. But it's super-complicated, and I've already written one over-long blog post today.)
Today, Shannon is coming by in a bit to hang out and write together, and then he's joining me, Dan and Nadya, and maybe Kevin (if he finishes up work in time) for dinner. Simple menu, since our cooking abilities are slightly limited here (would you believe, this place doesn't have an oven???) -- cheese and bread and berries to start; salad with mixed greens, grilled asparagus, fresh mozzarella, plum tomatoes, and balsamic vinaigrette; penne with a spicy portobello-mushroom and tomato sauce. Shannon's bringing dessert.
