kurt's nightmare

Generally, I post once a week. Topics are randomly selected and depend mostly upon whether it's baseball season or not. Other topics will include sex, politics, old girlfriends, music, and whatever else pops into my little brain. If you'd like to read, or ignore, my blog about China: http://meidabizi.blogspot.com/

Location: Dayton, OH, Heard & McDonald Islands

I'm an Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Dayton. I represent no one but myself, and barely do that. I'm here mostly by accident.

Wo Wei Lei Le

About the only thing worse than my characters is my pinyin; although, ironically, I know the characters for "pinyin." The title is supposed to say "I'm back," more or less. Zou you, you know.

Look, I'm back. It's 8:17 a.m., Thanksgiving morning. I was trying to finish a paper--well, actually, I did finish it--and got down to the old office at 2:45 a.m.. I think I'm still on Shanghai time. Which means, I think, that my body is convinced it's next Wednesday or something.

Lots of stories forthcoming from my trip to China, and I know my reader is looking forward to that.

But until then, Happy Thanksgiving. R.I.P., Joe Nuxhall; the ol' lefthander really is rounding third and heading home.
