In case you are wondering, I am alive and well. Just busy with work. Today is grading day for part 2 of the project. So a whole day dedicated to the task.
In addition to work, I am being pressured by people (i.e., family, who else) not to spend too much non-work time on the computer. This has obviously affected my blogging. Anyway, I hope to get rid of that pressure and be back blogging regularly.
I have finished reading Terror and Liberalism by Paul Berman. I should have a review up tomorrow. Tonight I plan to watch the extended edition of The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers with my roommates on DVD.
