(A pretty typical outfit lately. I also wore a knee length pencil skirt, black tights, and 3 year old black kitten heels)
But in addition, I've had lots of new, exciting things that I've been involved with. Surely you didn't think someone who calls themselves "Rad" would sit on the sidelines during Occupy Wall Street? This requires multiple, 3 hour (sometimes longer!) "participatory democracy" based meetings every week, in which everything is discussed, at length. (Did you see the video with Ketchup on Colbert Report? The hand signals are about right). In addition to my participation in a couple working groups, I've also recently become an "irregular correspondent" on a Chicago-based community radio program, This is Hell. Well, it's not official yet, but I agreed to it on air last weekend. This is all on top of this my usual teaching/research/service, as well as a running regimen. Lastly, Steven and I are in the midst of a key marital dispute over whether to get a dog (I say yes; he tries not to roll his eyes).
Hope all is well and I will continue to follow your blogs on Googlereader. I do not have plans for any additional blogs, but perhaps I'll have a political one in the future. In the meantime, happy November to all! If anyone comes to NYC, I'd love to meet up for some herbal tea (which is in the cup above) and many some Caribbean food.
