Todd Learns to Copy Stuff

As a former poet, I only copied the words of amazing people that were somehow scrambled up in my head. I mean really, what else can a poor poet do? And I learned something recently about copying a Google document, or in the case below, a Google Drawing. If you make the document public and editable, and then copy the link, at the end of the url you can replace “edit” with “copy” and if someone clicks on the link […]

Only Connect

Anyone who knows me is aware of my love of EM Forster’s novels, the restrained and deliberate prose, the precision on his word choices, the delicate characterization that surprises the reader with its immense depth.

Remember the Bat Phone

Anyone who knows me in my work spaces knows of my phone fetish. It ain’t like I have lots of them, or even that I have nice ones, or do strange things with them, but I do make myself available on them for faculty/students who need help. I’ve been doing that for some time and I think that the faculty/students are always appreciative that I am there, so they can reach out and, ah, touch me…. Um, well, like I […]

2018ENG101syllabus_v.2_revised 10132020.docx

There is a reason that Timothy goes by Tim and Isabella goes by Isa. Well, I suppose there is a reason anyway. Easier to roll off the tongue? Less effort? Sounds crisper? A more enjoyable experience? Nicknames sometimes sound fuzzier, or warmer? I guess the end result is that we know Tim when we see him. We know Isa when we hear her name. And that is good. And if we know a Tim when we see him, why is […]
