NYC, QoE and Me

Medieval sirenShenanigans in the city with gal pal Stephanie today. Hope to manage a few things like the Morgan medieval monsters exhibit. If you’re about give us a shout.

Sunday Shenanigans

Lots to catch up on — pictures, posts, reviews — but in the mean time, it’s family day. Half off sale is still on at Smashwords and hoping for some reviews of HBW5 soon! More wanderings tomorrow —

Smiles of a Summer Night (and Day)

welcome home

I am back in Dundee so life has improved immensely. Yes, still busy (week two of a three-week online intensive, one review written and sent, a couple of deadlines looming) but I have played with the Executive Princess, slept soundly, finished a book I’ve been reading in bits, and started watching the final series of Bron/Broen/The Bridge — Saga, how I have missed you!

No conference papers this summer, but plenty of shenanigans to come.

 

In Search of Medusa

On the town (NYC naturally) with the QoE at the Met, in the park, sharing Amity, and a drink with Katya. More pix on the ‘book.

 

On the Road Again

It’s Easter so the pop culture scholars gather at PCA: this year it’s in Indianapolis so my big plan is to finally see the Vonnegut Library. I’m rooming with gal pal Miss Wendy and we’ve already caught up with some friends the first night. Busy busy, busy, as Bokononists say.

Spreading the word of my wandering women as I go, of course! I’m giving a paper on Elisabeth Sanxay Holding’s The Blank Wall and the 2001 adaptation The Deep End.

Edinburgh: National Gallery

I love the story of Callum. I can’t recall if you weren’t allowed to photograph the Turner watercolours that are only on display in January, or if I was just too busy looking at them. I got the catalogue. It took me until the Bacon and Turner exhibit to understand his appeal, but I get it now.

NYC with the QoE

It was nice to get away for a day even though I’m still ailing and still behind on a lot of things. You may have noticed I haven’t been blogging as much lately. Maybe there’s not much to say. I can show you things though: like this fabulous day. Our main objective was to catch the Mystical Symbolism exhibit at the Guggenheim but we managed to fit in some other wanderings as well. Oodles more photos on the ‘book.
