no terrorists in our treehouse

Do you know who Tariq Ramadan is? I didn't, until Manan posted about him, and it's a goddamn abomination what's happened.

It turns out that it is possible to work on the novel in Berkeley, and maybe even finish it by New Year's, but it is going to take scads of time. Reluctantly I have dropped the fascinating but completely terrifying British Modernism course from my load—it was full of, and pitched toward, second- and third-year students who, unlike me, know what they're doing in the lit-crit realm. I mean, it's not all empty jargon; there are avenues of critical thinking that are useful and incisive, and I just don't have them yet. I can't play in the big kids' sandbox.
