Being unemployed sure does take up a lot of my time. I haven’t posted in a while because I thought I’d give y’all a break from my increasingly esoteric ramblings about religious discipline. But that’s what I’m working on. Honestly, I need to find some new historical stories.
Only thing that’s happened lately is that I went to the SCHW meeting. Saw some good stuff. Met some good people. ProfSparklePony serenaded the grad students at lunch. I actually gave a comment on a panel (again, I’m the mayor of being the guy standing around doing nothing when someone, anyone, is needed.) That had me nerved out, but I think it went well. I made a complex joke, but no one laughed. Probably because said joke had no punchline and made little sense.
I did see a panel on…. religious discipline in the Civil War era. That gave me some things to think about, obvs.
Otherwise, nothing going on here, except, of course, the things I’m not telling you about.
