I do also want to mention that yesterday, my husband and I legally changed our names. Err, we started the long process that it takes to legally change our names. We filed the paperwork at the courthouse, paid the atrocious fees, found a newspaper to publish the proposed changes for four weeks to see if anyone objects (at least, that's why I'm assuming they make you do that).
So, technically, our names won't change until June 22nd. But I am still pretty effing excited.
More on that later. I have office hours coming up and a Chaucer lecture to write. Woo hoo!
I'm a small town girl who moved to the big city. I love stories. I teach English and Creative Writing. I love to be outside, get my hands dirty, and occasionally blow things up in the kitchen. I am new to the whole "wife" thing, but I'm working on it. I'm writing a baggy monster and occasionally want to chuck my computer out the window.
