0 if nothing else, when this is all over i'll have a bigger vocabulary

i'd forgotten how wobbly writing critically makes me about words.

in the last 45 minutes, i have defined...

recursive
discursive
cultural forms
historicizing
historicization
semiotics (for the 10,000th time at least)
stories
dynamic
context
alembic
excapism (typo, not a word)
power
synchronic
diachronic
"life and times" biography (a sinkhole of unhelpfulness, btw)
historikerstreit 

i also briefly entertained the idea that the "theory of dynamic permeability and tortuosity in porous media" might somehow be transferrable to my work on media dynamics of life narratives. (it is not.)

and, while i have not yet become so flustered that i've been forced to (yet again) check the definition of ambiguity, this happened:


so all you guys who keep saying we are middle aged can just hush, k?
