i'm such an academic snob. someone has submitted an article about a kundera novel for the magazine. i'm not finished editing it, but i keep catching meself writing in comments like "actually, kundera has said this in other places, so your comment here is technically wrong" or "but in another part of the novel kundera wrote this..?"
it's nice to have the work i did on kundera last year come in handy. and i'm revelling in it while marking up this article. because it's only going to happen once, i know it!
i found out yesterday that the papers i thought were due on wednesday are actually due a day earlier. so in a roundabout way, wasting time hiking through ravines and visiting friends turned out to be vitally important. i prolly wouldn't have gotten my papers in on time. so hurrah!
