JJC posted a picture of his desk over at ITM, and I thought--since I've spent the last six hours chained to mine--I put a pic up as well. I am beginning to feel surrounded by work.
Items of note:
- Ever-growing stack of books that I need to get (back) to for the KZoo conference paper (including Sociophobics, Chambers' Beowulf, and Friedman's Monstrous Races).
- Chretien's Arthurian Romances for our UO reading group.
- Computer monitor, proudly showing the ITM comment screen!
- The stupid green egg timer that was going to bring discipline to my grading regimen.
- Delicious, delicious Stumptown coffee.
- Student papers on Walker Percy or John Berger than I am pitifully trying to grade.
- Ever-growing stack of books that I need to get (back) to for the KZoo conference paper, pt. 2 (including Liuzza's Beowulf, the Norton critical Beowulf (I swear I only have it for the articles!), Klaeber's 3rd edition of Beowulf)
- Even-faster-growing stack of books to which there many reasons I should return (including Bloom's The Closing of the American Mind, and Fradenberg's Sacrifice Your Love...what a pair!)
- Also, there is a stapler.
