But where have I been over the past 10 days, with no blogging? Hard to say, really. I've been travelling all over the northwest: doing recruitment for Swansea and giving talks about Butler, so I have been busy. But the not blogging explanation would have to run deeper than that. For one thing, every time I checked SecondAmericano, Rebecca had blogged up a storm. And she tends to inhabit a slightly different blogging voice than I. Perhaps that's the issue: I'm not sure what my 'blogging voice' is. I'm not quite as autobiographical as Rebecca, and sometimes I think I aspire to the wisdom of OddsAreOne or the politically savvy nature of FreedomFromBlog – but those aren't quite me either.
For now, my voice is very deep and gravelly from the chest cold, so I'll sign off now having said close to nothing (and that's what I've felt like I've had to say over the past week or so) other than a couple of updates.
- people have more interest in Judith Butler's political theory than I suspected
- top private liberal arts colleges truly are amazing places to live and learn
- human beings are particularly ill-suited to travel on airplanes; we weren't made to live in one place and have friendes and family in other places, thousands and thousands of miles (and oceans) away.
- Apple has surprised even me with the announcement of Boot Camp
