CCCC 2011: Atlanta, GA
Hi all! You may be stumbling upon this site because of this year’s 4Cs, in which case I want to let you know what I’m doing this year, etc. Unfortunately, I’m only doing a workshop this year and not a panel–but the workshop is amazing.

What is This? A Post, Perchance?
So what up? I thought that may be a good way to start a post given I haven’t written in about FOREVER. But it’s fine, because this is my “personal” blog.

Vacation and Suggestion Time!
(un)Enlightened English and (un)Enlightened Philosophy are on vacation in Myrtle Beach until August 22, 2009. The internet here has been relatively slipshot, so while I was planning on trying to catch up on my posting, I’m afraid I cannot rely on the internet enough to do regular posting.
