Blogging out in the open: since I'm now officeless I'm spending my last week here working in the English department's TA offices, which is basically a big open room with semi-cubicle areas, all decorated in beige and brown fabrics. It's like a furniture time warp in here, circa 1978.

Like most new buildings at Stanford the room has motion-sensor lights, so that if I'm sitting still here for more than a few minutes the lights turn off. Waving my hands and throwing things has no effect, but if I slap the desk really hard the lights come back on.
