WHO CARES WHY ITS A CAMEL
It’s a camel in ATLANTA! Camels don’t live here! Emory is not a zoo! (contrary to what I sometimes think.) No! No camel!
what kind of absurd idea… I mean why even was there a camel in the middle of the Emory campus today?
(and it wasn’t even a wednesday! I excuse a lot of shit on wednesdays because of some bizarre weekly ritual known as “wonderful wednesdays”)
my fancy aunt and uncle sent Tree and I fancy kitchen towels as a little engagement gift.
my aunt is a funny creature and sent the aforementioned kitchen towels priority insured mail.
one has french chocolates on it and the other has olives. french olives?
now that I have one day of class left (this coming Monday), it’s really time to start assessing what is left to get done and start finishing things. because on top of doing all my finals I need to also write a conference paper (which admittedly isn’t that long, but still needs to be researched and written…)
today my department is having a memorial picnic in honor of our amazing administrator who died of breast cancer last spring. I was home on leave when I got the news - it came as a shock to the whole student contingent. I am really appreciative that we are making this space for remembering and that I get to share in it, even if I only knew this woman briefly. she was the most beautiful, warm spirit - she lit up the whole department. and she knew how everything worked and took care of us.

unbelievable things about working with undergrads: I have a student who skipped class on one of her mandatory presentation days in order to go to an extra credit workshop for another class. she then tried to pass this off as an excused absence.
