7 May 2003 again: Okay, now not only do I hate Blogger and blog*spot, I also hate easyDNS. I took Paul's advice and went with GKG, where I bought culturecat.com and culturecat.net. I think that the main one I'll give to people will be culturecat.net, and culturecat.com will be a mirror site. culturecat.org will be parked at easyDNS. Whatever. Sorry for yet another change, but the URL is now...http://www.culturecat.net.

7 May 2003: Did I happen to mention that Blogger and blog*spot are both horrible? I'm just going to keep editing this post as if I'm writing new posts, so that they will all show up!!!

Best show you're probably not watching: Platinum. It's awesome! WATCH IT!!!

Please give me suggestions for a domain name if you have them. I'm thinking about keeping cyborg woman (http://www.cyborgwoman.net), but I'm not sure. My name is way too hard for most people to spell, especially if they just hear it. I want the domain name to sound somewhat professional, as I will put my teaching materials, curriculum vitae, etc. there. **Update: I have a domain name now: http://www.culturecat.org. Please, if you have me blogrolled or bookmarked, update the URL. I'm going to be blogging there from now on, and my target date for getting my new Drupal blog going is June 1 (but it could be sooner!).

Is Blogger only going to let me show one post at a time now? And I thought my troubles with them were over...

Spotlight blog that I can't believe I haven't blogrolled until now: funferal.

I'm so stressed. :-( I'm afraid I might collapse. Not really, but I am pretty loaded with work right now. Right after the semester's over, I'll have to hop in my car and take off to go to Computers & Writing and present a paper I haven't written yet. I have to write my three big seminar papers first! Aaaaaaaaa! Then it's on to Florence, AL for two weeks, then back here to the Twin Cities to focus completely on course design and syllabus for the class I'm teaching this summer, Rhetoric 3562, Technical and Professional Writing. I'm also most likely going to be moving into a new apartment in June or July too. Does it ever stop?! I'm going to have to find some time this summer to get a start on the TONS AND TONS of reading I'll be assigned in my fall classes.

The fall...I have high hopes for it. I'll be taking Feminist Theories and Methods, Genre Theory, and Feminist Pedagogies. I'll also be teaching a special multicultural section of Rhetoric 1101, which is part of the SEAM program. In my Feminist Pedagogies class, we'll be reading a lot of Paulo Freire, bell hooks, and stuff like that, and so I'm looking forward to some cool confluence between pedagogical theory and practice. Well, must get back to work on this Friday night.

I've become a lazy, sporadic blogger, but it's that time of the semester, so I don't feel too bad about it. Last night in my Gender and Science and Technology class, we watched a film called Born in the U.S.A.. For some time, I had been dismayed about birthing conditions for women, and from reading the work written by and recommended by Cheryl Lindsey Seelhoff, I developed an enthusiasm about midwifery and getting birthing back to WOMEN. But after watching that film, I am officially outraged about the way women are made to feel so afraid of giving birth, disempowered. Every feminist should be. I don't want children, but I wish I did, just so that I could do a midwife-attended home birth!
