Academic Wankery

Ahh, doing so well on the TrashZoo project of late, but not doing nearly enough on the DrZoo endeavour! Just can't get it together, reading a lot but when it comes to writing it up as academic blahblah... hmmm... think being so sickly at the moment is not helping the cause, hard to concentrate, even when dosed up to eyeballs on pseudoephedrine and coffee...

And there is so much to be done!
* must fix up last two chapters of lit review and give to long-suffering supervisor.
* have no methodology as such. despite this, have agreed to give seminar presentation to department in october outlining my methodology and providing a bit of a progress report. oops! really ought to work out what i am doing and how i am doing it soon!
* going to Melbourne in September, and should try to do some research while down there. and this means a bit of work before I go to work out what needs researching
* want to get a journal article tidied up and submitted by the end of the month
* need to write a paper for the UnAustralia cultural studies conference in Decemeber (Canberra- talking about lactating purely for pleasure)
* need to write up a paper for the Fabulous Risk circus conference in December (Wollongong- where LactoGrrl will perform/speak for the first time, about the carnival and spectacle and he grotesque)
* have to write an abstract for the SomaTechnics conference atMacquarie next year

well, at least this morning i have made my 'to do list'. maybe somebody ought to discipline me into this? any takers?

But not much more'

BTW Tonight will probably be up at The Newtown Hotel around 8:30 to check out the new girly night. Then on to The Sly no doubt... see some of you there!
