Pitseleh and I are having a most awesome discussion about the Goffmanian concept of backstage. Original post here, followed by part I and part 2. My tangentially related post here, and a conversation between Pitseleh and I on the elusiveness of the backstage can be found here.
Go read. You know you want to procrastinate. I know you do, because you didn’t install Leechblock, or else you wouldn’t be reading this.
Pitseleh is suggesting that I beg one of you to get me a $10 vistor’s pass to ASA 2008, and I can probably crash at a law prof friend’s house somewhere in Cambridge. She says that I can sneak into receptions and eat free food, and so all I have to do is scrounge up the airfare. I am sorely tempted, because I really want a Scatterplot ribbon. And given the success of WickedA’s new voodoo doll business, maybe I should start up a boutique of my own.
