April Showers

Indeed, when it rains, it pours. Here's what I've been doing this April:

My day job;

Writing a piece on an 8-day deadline for my favorite magazine and interviewing some of the smartest, wittiest women around in the process;

Copyediting two books for my favorite publishing house;

Grading 90 essays for (um--my favorite!) outside organization;

Auditioning for and rehearsing with the faculty rock band for a performance next week (eek!);

Speaking at a symposium in honor of my beloved dissertation advisor, the founding American voice of feminist literary scholarship;

Meeting with my fellow cast members of a dramatic play to be put on in June.

Sorry, Mr. Eliot; I think that April is the coolest month!

I'm tired just reading this! Oh, and I'm sure there was a little bit of parenting thrown in for good measure :-)

Oh yes: add three children, ages 4, 7, and 10 to the mix . . . Thanks for the reminder!!

Blimey, you are a busy bee, sounds like you will soon be in need of a holiday or at least a few days away.

...just when I was about to call child protective services or the fashion police....seems like you need some sort of fashion intervention to take you away, some sort of wedge with an open toe, in navy patent leather.

forgive my lack of attention in the form of comments.

Sounds perfect even the kids bit! xx

Wow, all those different activities, you are a renaissance woman. So are you a singer or do you play an instrument or both?

I think it sounds hella fun. Am I sick?:)

What a fantastically exciting time. I can't help but wonder about what the May flowers will bring for you.
