Dark Thoughts

I have been lately attracted to the idea of living in a small, modular, possibly prefab dwelling, somewhere off the grid. I was feeling like this before I read the article in Rolling Stone that talked about "peak oil," and how soon it's coming, and how it's going to be basically a new middle ages. So now I'm pretty motivated.

I'm still teaching my classes for now--I guess people still need to know how to make rhetorical appeals--but pretty soon, I'm going to have to be able to grow my own vegetables and maybe keep a goat. Luckily, I had my first cheese-making experience recently.

Off the grid, baby. That's where I'm headed.


  1. Will there stll be television?

  2. yes, but no satellite.

  3. We should probably talk to Diedre about getting a horse.
