Must get pumped for teaching. Okay, story to read and crit for advanced fiction; that will be fun. And more Melville today -- we touched lightly on Moby Dick Monday, so continue a bit of that, accompanied by "Bartleby, the Scrivener." Bartleby is always fun. But perhaps a bit too apropos for a day when I am feeling like playing hooky instead of stepping back onto the work treadmill. Thankfully, my job is far, far more enjoyable that his.
If you haven't read this story, I commend it unto you. Especially all the scriveners among you. :-) It's hilarious, in a morbidly depressing sort of way.
