Total randomness

I'm tired because I was writing in my head again last night. Unfortunately I don't remember what it was. I was thinking about sexism and motherhood and technology, so perhaps it was some version of the Stepford Wives. I don't know.

I remembered the previous night's writing and actually got the article down on paper. I'm writing a sort of general piece, something that might be appropriate for The Chronicle or a journal in Instructional Technology about technology and the liberal arts. If anyone has any ideas about that they'd like to share, leave me a comment or e-mail me.

I actually had a very good day yesterday. I was all worked-up about something and it got resolved yesterday. I was worked-up for nothing. I did some more work on CSS. I worked on the article. I did some reading for the grant I'm working on. At the end of the day, I met with a faculty member to work on his computer and help him do some video editing/dvd burning. It was quite productive. While we were waiting for the DVD to burn, we had a nice talk.

The morning is going to be filled with meetings but the afternoon is wide open. I've been ignoring a lot of my IT blogs lately and I'm hoping to . . . OOh I just remembered what I was writing in my head. I have a presentation on blogging to the board of trustees; right after that, I'm doing one on blogging and teaching writing. I was writing that in my head last night. Cool! So maybe that's what I'll do this afternoon.

At some point I'm going to write about some things I've been thinking about in regard to my particular institution's culture. A few of the people at that institution read this, but I don't think I'll be writing anything risque. I'm finally starting to solidify some ideas about some institutional problems, some things I think I've contributed to, but that I can do something about--maybe.

How's that for totally random?
