I write this short and sorry missive in the midst of dangling wires, copper pipes, freshly hung drywall, and 5-gallon tubs of paint. Did I mention that when I’m not grading papers or waxing philosophical about historiography I’m stripping four layers of paint off of 42 year old cabinets? We’re projected to move into our condo in less than two weeks–right in the middle of finals. Yes. I’m crazy. So it’s appropriate that the only dispatches I’m doing this week are last minute trips to Home Depot and Lowe’s.
