Gratuitous T.S. Eliot quote:

April is the cruelest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain. (“The Waste Land” 1-4)

And that’s the best I can do to explain why there are no posts beyond some rather lackadaisical twittering. The short headlines:

  1. New Joss Whedon-TV-related anthology Buffy and Angel Conquer the Internet, ed. Mary Kirby-Diaz, includes my essay “I’ve Got a Little List, or, ‘You Guys Wanna Team Up and Take Over SunnydaleU?'” as well as several other investigations into online fandom.
  2. Last week of classes begins. We seem to be ending earlier than usual this year. According to recent article in campus paper, still no definite word on where my department will go when our office building is demolished. Comforting!
  3. Bringing home new cat tomorrow. Hope I don’t regret it, but he had that je ne sais quoi. Current cat will be so surprised! But he’s been missing his little buddy.

Back to work!
