Tax Day

Today I mentioned to my students that it was "Tax Day." They thought I was saying "TAKS Day" and freaked out. Homophones will do that to you.

Poking my head out...

So...I know it's been a while but between grad school and trying to catch up on Bones I've had no spare time to write. And although I love Bones I doubt you want a play by play. Nor do you want me to recap articles on digital libraries.  So...yes I"m still here.

So, in the words of Bones:

"Dancing Phalanges!"

I have a new show! Well, it's not really a new show but it's new to me. Thank you Kelly for introducing me to Bones.  Firstly, it stars David Boreanez (so hot!) from Angel and Buffy and Emily Deschnael (sister of Zooey Deschanel from Elf).  It has an X-File-ly feel because of the FBI twist but not as uber serious as Mulder and Scully.  Angela is a nice character foil of Temperance "Bones" Brennan.  The only drawback is it's quite graphic with the decomposing bodies but the story arc about her parents is quite interesting. That aspect reminds me of Alias. I'm working my way through season two now.  OK, back to the show.

Black Box

I'm not going to read this until after my midterm Thursday.
I"m only going to read one chapter.
I'm only going to read until 10:00.
Oh, hell I'll finish the book.

This is the thought process that went through my head this afternoon after I picked up Black Box from the library.  I usually don't visit the library that often, even though I want to be a librarian.  I'm a very bad library patron. The thing is I forget to turn in books and end up racking up big fines. We'll see how this one goes.  

So I read this book in one sitting. The thing is, I didn't like it very much.  I couldn't put it down though. I wanted to see what happened. This is about a girl whose sister is suffering from depression and how she deals with it.  It was unique in that most books about depression are from the point of view of the person struggling with it.  The character was rather flat and it was rather anti-climatic. I wouldn't really recommend it, but I'm glad I read it....if that makes sense. bed I said.
