I bought these purple Halloween lights because I like how people (often students) put up lights in their rooms. But when I tried to do the same I just couldn't abide how ugly they look when strung up on a wall--it just looks messy. So I opted for this "light sculpture" in a little rectangular basket I had. It still looks pretty silly but at least its not adorning the walls--and I like the way the lights look when they're scrunched up together. What I'd really like are those lighted flowers one sometimes finds...

"Inwieweit gibt es wirklich "weibliches" schreiben? In so weit Frauen aus historischen und biologischen Gründen eine andere Wirklichkeit erleben als Männer und dies ausdrücken. Insoweit Frauen nicht zu den Herrschenden, sondern den Beherrschten gehören, jahrhundertelang, zu den Objekten der Objekte. Objekte zweiten Grades, oft genug Objekte von Männern, die selbst Objekte sind . . ."

When the weather is nice professors take their classes out to the amphitheater. This class seemed really interested--I think the people sitting next to the prof. (farthest left of the people not facing us) were guests to the class. The students seemed very attentive and interested in what they had to say. It looked like a good class.

There'll be a picture of the thumb tomorrow. I wanted to post a picture from our afternoon walk--and I thought this one of a big toad would work. Bill spotted him!

Anyway this is a picture of my office cup, purchased at Kroger on the window sill of my office...a typical "AA" scene so to speak....not exciting but "auspicious" in its own quiet way...(I like the pattern on the cup).
