Return from the blue lagoon . . .
Having returned home from venture out into that faraway land of Daytona, your humble narrator dost find her lovely cat to be as saucy as ever and her lovely apartment to be rather dirtier than usual, much in need of a proper dusting. Furthermore, bathroom ceiling has developed a rather troublingly persistent leak, while my always lovely students become ever more demanding. In other words, your narrator finds herself much in need--of sleep, of time, of sanity. With but world enough and time, she could maintain peace and cleanliness whilst also teaching and dissertating. Alas, the world dost not comply with her most fervent pleas . . . and so your humblest of narrators must away to return once more to the horrors of the quotidian.
