Head Down*

I’ve been writing furiously (so much so that my wrists are ache) and I am finally closing in my 25-page paper, hopefully in time to allow McHotty to proofread it for me.

Yep, McHotty proofreads all of my academic writing.

If that’s not devotion, I don’t know what is. Some of it’s pretty fucking boring.

And he’s really picked up the slack in the childcare/housework/cooking department as well.

Thanks McHotty. I owe you something special.

Will try to write something substantial around here soonest. In the meantime, have you seen Hot and Bothered’s first video? It’s far more entertaining than anything I have to say.

* D’ya like the double meaning?

Yay for nearly completing the paper!

I LOVE that video. Makes me so sad I missed out but glad I got to catch a glimpse.
McHotty truly has so many talents.
The banker cannot handle proof-reading my work. He want's to re-write everything because he disagrees with it. NOT because there is anything wrong with it, just because he disagrees. He wants to argue every point with me. It is torture. Seriously. My thesis on how race and class affect student access to education. A ridiculous assumption according to the Chinese husband. How can the white girl win that argument? No, no really you are oppressed I tell him.
Reminds me of when we were dating and I suggested the idea of forgiving third world debt. His head almost exploded, the idea was that absurd.
And he is a terrible bar tender/host.
I'm sure McHotty will get what is coming to him.

Perhaps you can write an H&B post on favours...

I love how you keep laughing in that video, even while mounting the tuffet.

Yay for the husband! Mine was like that too, when I went to college. Now it's my turn to read his papers.

25-page paper? No wonder Bossy isn't an Academic.
