Mon Jul 01 17:01:18 +0000 2013

The thing I can’t wrap my head around \(ha ha\) is who you would be after the transplant. We’d finally know where selfhood is located I guess.

Mon Jul 01 17:02:35 +0000 2013

@IntarchEditor Yes -- we’ve definitely found that authors have to participate in the process in very different ways when it’s open.

Mon Jul 01 17:16:58 +0000 2013

Replying to @plragde

But some recent arguments have suggested that identity inheres in the body rather than strictly in the brain \(e\.g\. muscle memory\).

Mon Jul 01 17:18:35 +0000 2013

Replying to @plragde

Such a transplant would at least let us know for sure. Wake the patient up & ask “who are you now?”

Mon Jul 01 17:19:10 +0000 2013

Replying to @plragde

True! Though in that case only the spinal cord has been severed; other systems remain connected, if some function with assistance.

Sad, but very likely true. The Pomonas of the world are great, but it’s a nightmarish situation overall.

“Stevens’s definitive contribution to this cultural icon was to ‘put the wiener in the bun’” \(151\). The icon? The Oscar Mayer Wienermobile.

I wonder if I’ll ever feel the same way about wiener puns again.

T-minus 6 days until re-entry, post working vacation. It’s been amazing, on both counts: http://www.plannedobsolescence.net/blog/on-the-working-vacation/

I am, however, looking forward to finally settling into the apartment I moved into two months ago. Maybe buying a dresser, hanging blinds.

I bought a dresser from them in like 1995. Gave it away when I left CA two years ago. I miss that dresser.

“Boss” is indeed a strange word, esp for one right out of academe. “Senior colleague” works well indeed!

@surlyF Hey, something I’m sure you can use as a blurb somewhere: “Furlough is exactly right.” —Scholarly Kitchen. http://scholarlykitchen.sspnet.org/2013/07/26/dissertation-embargoes-and-the-rights-of-scholars-aha-smacks-the-hornets-nest/

That would make a nice card. That, an email, a Twitter handle — that’s all you need.

Maybe on the flip side, the inevitable “Furlough is completely wrong.”

as Brett notes, a name-brand service may go along way toward producing the social change @mia_out points to.

Packing up to head back to NYC tomorrow. It’s been an absolutely dreamy trip, but I’ll be glad to get home.

I'd love to hear what you wind up with. My printer/scanner died the day before I left on this trip & I'll have to replace soon.

Okay, packed up, crashing, and bracing for the 3 am cacophony of device alarms. See you tomorrow afternoon, NYC.

Tue Jul 30 19:22:25 +0000 2013

Okay: up at 3 am; dragged the suitcases outside just after 4 am; in the lounge at PRG at 5 am. Home around 4 pm. See you in a bit, NYC.
