So as it would turn out, after we state that we’re taking next Monday and Tuesday off because of senior thesis deadlines, Ariel is now also having laptop difficulties (read: it doesn’t work) and now we’re taking the rest of this week off too. We’re still going to honor the poll results for next Thursday/Friday, even if it doesn’t necessarily make sense anymore, because our readers might as well have some sort of fun with the voting.
To assuage the pain of having no Bad Books, Good Times for such a long period of time (we’re jerks), we’re gonna shamelessly recommend some old posts from our other blogs. Perhaps you’d like to read Ariel’s thoughts on how to distinguish between appropriate and inappropriate responses in normal society? Perhaps you’d like to read Matthew’s affective fallacy-tastic close reading of Carly Rae Jepson’s “Call Me Maybe”? You got options.
Thanks for bearing with us. We’ll have new content again next Wednesday!
