Hi there loyal fans.
So, I just was treated to listening to my own recorded voice which is always a harrowing experience. I have a low-pitched lady voice and a comes-then-goes Southern accent, so when I’m recorded, I sound like a festival of impairment. I also talk super fucking fast, which is why my students have to record me to begin with. Sorry, students. (Not that any of them read this blog… It’s like my fortress of solitude… bruhahaha!).
Anyhow. I realized that my summaries of Great Literature are pretty fucking funny, at least when played back via a recording device. One of my educational jobs is to tutor British, American and other literatures, so this involves a lot of quick summation since the kids a) barely read and b) don’t retain anything they *do* read. What I’d like to know is: Would you, loyal blog readers, like to hear these insane summations? They are plenty profane (I work at the college level, so fuck that swear jar noise) and run quite a gamut, genre-wise. I have an entire 3-ring binder full of notes that I base these little “lectures” on so it would be pretty simple to transcribe them here, on my blog. I can even take requests, since I’m fairly sure there is not a lot I have not read. It will still be snarky (I mean, have you MET ME?!) but these will be less reviews, per se, than quick summaries.
Let me know in the comments, kids, and put down any requests. I will compile a list of top ten and start doing them next week, if ya’ll think this is a good idea.
PS Check out the blog roll! It’s been updated! La la la…
