Some Downton videos

Both courtesy of the Pop Culture Happy Hour Facebook group:

I'd love to watch with these ladies!

But what does it mean???

I'm also not sure what it says about me but this is true: there are certain shows that I count the days until new episodes air--like I'll wake up in the morning, and by the time I am walking out the door, I'll think, "Oh man, I still have to wait [fill in the blank] days until the next episode of [fill in the show]." And that realization makes me sad. Like genuinely (and yes, only temporarily!) bummed out. It doesn't happen all that often. I love my TV, but generally I can wait out breaks between episodes and even seasons. But every once in a while, there's an exception to that rule.

This past fall/early winter, it was American Horror Story.

Right now, it's Downton Abbey. 

That, my friends, in a bit eclectic, no?

Random cuteness

Isn't he cute? I mean, seriously. It's hard to get work done around here sometimes.

Funny Girls

Check out what came in the mail earlier this month.


This is a special issue of the journal that I guest edited and for which I wrote the introduction. Very exciting to see it come to fruition!


Saw the link over at the Dish.

Go Colin!

My little nephew makes the news in his hometown. He's so cute, isn't he?

Babysitting my doggy nephew this weekend. I think he finds me boring. Can't blame him too much: my weekend highlights (grading, reading, and writing) are more suited for cats than energetic dogs. We're pretty mellow 'round here.

Three Little Pigs and Shakespeare

A student just sent me this. It's pretty funny!

And yeah, I'll get back to some real posting soon.
