On a completely unrelated note I managed to surprise the hell out of myself
today in a very boring class (there's nothing quite like being a 33 yr old
back in college with a bunch of 20 yr olds to make you crazy) by not only
using the word dialectic in a coherent sentence as relating to Communistic
vs. Democratic/Capitalist thought, but it was within the flow of
consciousness where the class (Ok, the Professor and I) discussing
Existentialism as related to Camus' _The Plague_ and the subject of
narrative voice as a tool of storytelling.

All I could think of was how much it felt like a post on this list...

If only I could have brought up Trotsky or Cute Asian Chicks in Bondage than
it would have been complete.
