Texas v Texas Tech

I hope the game lives up to all the hype!

Colt McCoy vs. Graham Harrell will be awesome.

Crabtree will have a good night...

Go Tech!

Writing my dissertation

This semester,I was lucky enough to get a fellowship to write my doctoral dissertation. I only have to keep office hours one morning a week to be available for tutoring.
I dont have to teach either.

I am making progress but sometimes its hard to stay motivated.

I have a new found respect for writers now!

Any advice?

My favorite Emmy dresses

This is my favorite dress and look for the evening: Kate Walsh.

Brooke Shields dress is a close second... I was thrilled to find out my favorite evening wear dress designers, Badgley Mischka made it! I absolutely love them!

Loved Vanessa's dress also!

Yahoo rated Eva the worst dressed, and I have strongly disagree...The dress isnt that bad

Camille Paglia op-ed

This is why Camille Paglia is a REAL FEMINIST...
She doesnt bloviate a bunch of anticonservative BS...

And she is honest about her prochoice stance...She acknowledges that abortion is murder!

Paglia is a real feminist whom I respect and admire, despite disagreeing with several of her tenets...

Feminism on its head

No matter what you think of both Hilary Clinton and Sarah Palin, as women, as feminists, should we not be excited about this?

Why are people, not to mention females like the idiotic Sally Quinn, asking if Gov. Palin can do her job as vice president with 5 kids? I dont think one person has asked Sen McCain about his seven kids or umpteen grandkids...

And I seriously doubt anyone asked President John Kennedy about his two small children!

Another thing I take issue with is that people question Gov. Palin's beauty pageant involvement. I guess you cant be both smart and attractive as well.

I am outraged by not only the sexism I am seeing, but the fact that "feminists" or people who say they are feminists are showing that they are against women succeeding in politics if they are conservative. I didnt know that feminism was about conservatives and liberals.
Margaret Thatcher was a conservative and I know she was a feminist
Why cant Palin be that also?

No one has a monopoly on feminism...

NFL start

I am so excited that the NFL began last night...
The game was a little boring...Redskins looked terrible!
But I cant wait to watch Tony Romolicious and the Cowboys kick some butt Sunday against the Browns!

Will we see more crying by T.O. this season?
Will Jerry Jones come down to the sidelines in the 3rd quarter?
Will Jessica Simpson be shown at every game?

I anticipate a great season!

Go Cowboys!

John McWhorter op-ed

I think Mr. McWhorter, one of my favorite writers, is right on the mark with this...
