Yes, I am reading J M G LeClezio's collection of short stories with the above title, occasionally. But not tonight. I have a fever and soar throat. This is frustrating. There is a long list of things I should be doing in preparation for the crit on Thursday, but not one of them has been completed. Unfortunately I won't be able to present what is currently being developed partly in my head (where it shouldn't be) and partly in my laptop (where it shouldn't be either). It should be clearly put together in pdfs that can be printed out and hung up on the boards so can get some feedback. Now it looks like I'm going to have to present most of my material some time next week and without the guest critics. I just hope this fever won't kill me first.
