I have had such an excellent day today! Got to sleep a few hours later than usual, then took Goldie to her new agility class. She's doing an amazing job! It's a real pleasure to work with such a happy, eager dog, and I'm overjoyed that she came into my life. Now all I have […]

It's three days after Solstice and Christmas Eve and well after Hannukah… and I have a ton of things to be thankful for. First and foremost for me: I have officially advanced to candidacy! In case I didn't make it clear just how unutterably happy & relieved that makes me: …yeah, THAT excited. :)

Eeeeeeee! I am SO pleased — just got the email from my dissertation committee chair that she's passing my dissertation proposal on as acceptable! Now I can send it on to my other two committee members — and soon: ONwards to dissertation researching and writing! :-D Also extremely exciting is what the Chair wrote in […]

Butter chicken for dinner tonight — yum! It's in the crockpot and starting to make the house smell delicious. Combined with the fact that it's summer and my proposal deadlines are all stalled until my adviser returns from her (well-deserved) vacation, that means I find myself with a bit of writing time on my hands, […]

This is just going to be various fun/silly things in my life currently — sometimes I need to simply not think about dissertation stuff. So! For a celebratory late Valentine's with friends, I decided we should have the traditional Valentine's Day pizza — because Hawaiian pizza is totes what St. Valentine celebrated with, amiright? Also, […]

Meatbaaallz! ;)

I figure this posting works well here, right after yesterday's blog posting on masculinity! :) So, I think I've taken the next step or so in learning cooking: I've started checking for what meat is on sale, then selecting recipes that take advantage of that… and I actually cribbed together two separate recipes to come […]

…and now back to my comps essay book reviews! :) A more sweeping view of women throughout history, including both their loss of power and their struggle to both resist and reclaim it within the kyriarchy, is brilliantly demonstrated by English journalist, broadcaster, and social critic Rosalind Miles' book Who Cooked the Last Supper? The […]

Next up in the Halloween dinner recipe reminiscence is Eye of Newt, crunchy Zombie Fingers, and the sweet Zombie Kidneys — all of which were quite tasty. Funny… writing all this down has reminded me of helping out my little sister many years ago, when she was in grade school. Her class had to each […]

The next elements of the Halloween dinner that we'll review are the poison apple dip, and zombie guts! The guts are startlingly easy — I saw a photo on-line of something that was captioned as "Halloween herb-bread guts." The bread in the original photo is on waxed paper and looks almost more glazed, like a […]

Okay! That's enough scholastic mumblings for a while — time for something lighthearted and fun: last Halloween's dinner! As I've mentioned previously, I occasionally get the urge to cook — either for a specific holiday or for a quiet moment in the midst of scholastic madness, so I feel back in control of myself and […]

Bestiaries depict mythical, moralizing animals, but are also potential allegorical sparks that can bloom into brilliant mental bonfires. My bestiary is this mythologizing animal's fascinated exploration of beauty & meaning in the wonder of existence -- in the hopes of inspiring yet more joyous flares of intellectual passion.

Enjoy!
