Busy Week

Tags: , , ,
Apologies for being MIA for the past week. It was the last week of my summer class, I had a roommate moving out and a new one moving in, and I'm currently pet sitting (dog and two cats) for some friends of one of my professors so I've been on the go a bit more than usual. I'm taking a semi-vacation this upcoming week, though. I'll still be pet-sitting through Saturday, but since I'm not having to negotiate the morning feeding and walking with teaching an 8:30 am class it is much easier. I have final exams and papers to grade, but with only three students that won't take long at all and is certainly less work than the daily lecture prep. I also need to move out of the office I had for summer teaching and my research carrel in the library into the one office I'll have for TAing for the upcoming academic year. That's all I'm going to do this week in terms of work stuff. I'll start on the dissertation again next week and have two full weeks of just dissertating to reorient myself there and plan out exactly what I need to do next. Then classes start and I'll have to add the TAing stuff into the work schedule with the dissertation, but I'm not planning on giving more than five or six hours a week to that except when there is grading. Everything else will be dissertation, dissertation, and more dissertation.

I started to write a post on Saturday about my predictions for the New Doctor. I obviously didn't get it done, which sucks because my analysis was spot on and I could have seemed really smart :) Oh well. I'll probably finish it and add something about my reaction to the announcement (generally pleased) and post it later today or, more likely, tomorrow. I also started the usual Sunday morning BBC Radio Post but didn't get it finished and up yesterday. Sorry about that. I'll definitely get it up later today. Right now, I need to run and get the new office key and try to get most of the moving from the library carrel to my new office done today because it is gorgeous out right now and supposed to rain the rest of the week. Moving books in the rain is never advisable.

I'd still like to read your Doctor Who analysis - especially if you got it right! :-)

I did get it right! :)
At least, I did in the big picture though I wasn't completely willing to commit to one name. I'll finish it (I need to turn a couple of bullet point kind of things into actual sentences) and add my after the announcement thoughts and get it posted tomorrow.
