The “what it the hell elipse question” thing was meant to help me avoid the need to come up with titles but sometimes I can’t come up with a question to come after the elipse. Same problem as trying to come up with a title. Annoying.

I finished reading Hamerquist’s Althusser essay, took very fragmentary notes. I still haven’t even scratched the surface on my post on ch25 of v1, nor have I reviewed my posts on ch23 and 24. I get so little sleep and have so little time to read these days, I’m not sure when I’m going to get to that, let alone all this stuff. On the plus side, my daughter is amazing and beautiful. Yesterday she developed a new laugh, a high pitched squeak/shriek/chirp and today she graced me with it several times.

For now, new reading plan, at least for political stuff. I’m going to read these, in the following order, mostly more stuff by Hamerquist. My friend Pete and I are going to try to talk about this stuff together to formulate questions and responses. This too will no doubt be interrupted (for instance, as I read the last chapter or so of Commonwealth, and as I read Manituana on the bus), but whatever. I accomplish only laterally, by procrastination, and without goals I can’t procrastinate.
