Agustin provides an update on the things going on with his grad school and family. He made me wonder if moon bounces (aka brincolín) are as ubiquitous as piñatas at Mexican kids’ birthday parties.
Big Brown Girl (more frequently known as Ms. Baeza these days) tells us that the students she works with are growing on her, and vice versa. However, I agree that she should stay away from the chick flick genre.
El Más Chingón quotes Ozomatli. Ya se fue.
Joel might be telling us “tales of mediocrity,” but I (as just one person representing about a thousand readers of his blog), I can attest to the fact that his tales are freaking hilarious. This week he reviewed one of his favorite romantic comedies, Doc Hollywood, was propositioned at work and grossed out his readers. Fun times.
Julissa comes back from a leave of absence. Hopefully it won’t take her another month to update again.
MsABCMom is off track and gets to take a break from teaching. She also got a cute Hermione Granger outfit for her daughter, Sabi, as part of her school’s Read Across America Week. Finally, her own brother told her she had to go to cultural sensitivity training because she tried to wipe off a co-worker’s ashes on Ash Wednesday. Doh!
Nebur wrote about seeing a free Rolling Stones show in Rio de Janeiro. It might have been free, but it was also way too crowded. His fellow blogger, Lee Stevens, reminds us that baseball is right around the corner. Finally, Nebur goes over the DUI case of Pretty Boy Floyd.
El Pocho Abogado wrote about the guy who plays bagpipes on the street. He doesn’t think the music will induce him to dance on the way to work. He also compares how much his learning expectations in law school have changed (or fallen?) as he’s gone from a 1L to a jaded 3L.
Over at el Oso, el Moreno and el Abogado we saw pictures of all three in NYC. And guess what, Moreno is, in fact, quite moreno. Oso also showed off his ethnographic writing skills and mused about why recent college graduates move to NYC
Xoloitzquintle wrote about how we should be nice to any unemployed or underemployed anthropology PhD, because the process of applying and awaiting responses generally sucks.
