Yep. I definitely caught another cold.

I spent most of the day whittling through the three episodes of "The Power of Nightmares" by the BBC (on the use of propaganda, myth, and images by neo-conservatives and "Islamist" radicals), after being inspired to it after all the buzz around the barroom table. 'Got through about three pages of Being & Time, but did manage to finish-off the copy of Cleopatra by Stacey Schiff which Allie and Chris got me for Xmas. A good read, I think, and pretty well researched, with a thick end-note and bibliography section. I also managed to read a grand total of two pages of Milan Kundera's Immortality. 'Definitely on a role, eh?

At any rate, I did manage to get some grocery-shopping done (picked up three more cans of chicken-noodle soup), and write one letter about my manuscript, and another about T.Aing over the Summer. I'll not be going-in to class tomorrow (I cancelled the undergraduate class which was to take place this morning), but I'll hopefully be well enough on Friday to attend the Nietzsche lecture which J.B. invited me along to.

Oh, yes: the heat has finally been restored in my room!

I keep meaning to say hello - I try to keep somewhat on top of saying hello to new "friends" on LJ - but I've been rather distracted lately, and fairly out of touch with most people these days. So I apologize for such a tardy greeting, and an uninteresting one at that, but, "Hello."

Ha! Well, I could say the same - "Should I say hello in this post? No, seems inappropriate. This one? No, to many witty people lurking about -- it would look silly. This one?..."

So, thanks be to you for breaking the tardiness-loop, and "Hullo!" :-)
