A quick miscellaneous entry:

— the Montréal list keeps expanding. We may need to supplement with a “top 10.” I am trying to convince Carrie to be the curator.

— Yesterday I had an interesting discussion about why women finish their books later than men do. Future subject of an academe post, no doubt

— I agree with the reviewer who said that the problem with the new Batman movies is that it’s all about the gadgets. Batman’s supposed to be smart. That’s his deal. He sure doesn’t look smart in the movie.

— speaking of gadgets, a camera phone sure would be nice for Australia.

Onward to school.
