Yes, if you like them, you must have liked my blog recently (lame “Enjoy the Silence” reference).
Explanation: stuff is going on and I don’t want to jinx it. Also, chances for that stuff that’s going on to actually happen (i.e. produce results) are really slim, so I have to force myself not to think about it, which has the same effect as someone telling you not to think of an elephant (you think of an elephant–just in case that wasn’t clear). But: stuff may or may not be happening.
Other current projects that take up my time:
1. I am training for the first annual Summarizing Infinite Jest World Championship.
2. I am preparing the launch of my new line of merchandise–evidently you don’t have to be famous any more these days to release your own fashion/fragrance line (mine will include shirts with my confused faced as standard logo and a variety of lines that say things such as “Heisenberg may or may not have been here” — my current fragrance that will be released later this week is “Eau D’Espair for Men”–it will be part of a Humanities Ph.D. toiletry set).
3. I am advising a friend on the pros and cons of getting various Greimas-squares tattoos.
Just thought I’d bring you up to speed.
