Blog kindly stopped for me--
Lo siento. Fall break sucked me right in, people, and don't you know even this post will be more of a frivolous folly than anything of substance, because my graduate workshop starts here in just a little bit, and then the amazing Jewelle Gomez will be reading later tonight here at UNL.
So in the meantime, I thought I'd give you a quick quiz of my three all-time super-favorite appellations, which I hope you will please start applying to me immediately.
In which films or television programs do the following (potentially mildly misquoted) lines have their sources?
#1: "the meanest wife ever"
#2: "the smartest witch of her generation"
#3: "the smuggest bitch in the world"
Please, please, please feel free to call me any of them at any time. I adore them. (The HH occasionally obliges, more or less spontaneously, with #1.) Try it.
At work, and especially while teaching, it's true I aspire to adjectives like diplomatic, kind, insightful, etc., but really: yawn. These 3 wicked ones are "more like the real me, the one nobody sees." (And the print source on that would be?)
Anyone who gets all 4 right (okay, we all know #2's a giveaway) will win my undying respect. And if you live in Lincoln, I'll make you flan.
