For the first time in a long time I’m in bed, with my laptop on top of my lap, reading and and now posting. Yesterday I managed to set foot in four of New York’s five boroughs, racing around cheacking on my students in Long Island City, and fetching up at badfaggot‘s mom’s place on Staten Island, for some poker, where I won much more money than my playing deserved. The day ended with a stunning ferry ride back into Manhattan. Right now I’m marvelling at how great Godzilla versus Megalon looks. CGI has nothing on those Toho studio explosions.
One of the things that has been keeping me from here has been the barrage of events accompaning the end of the school year: next Saturday, the first group of eight students graduates from the Master’s program I’ve been heading for the past three years. In anticipation of that event we have been having final thesis boards, end of the year crits and other ceremonies. It’s been lurch to work, stumble home into bed and back again.
