Friday Varia and Quick Hits

It’s hard to believe that this is the first Friday in December. Winter is here. There’s a nice blanket of snow and the skies alternate between a opaline grey and a brilliant light blue.

There are plenty of reasons to mostly stay inside in my cosy chair with my annoying dogs. First and foremost, this is new book week from The Digital Press at the University of North Dakota. Do check out Shawn Graham’s Failing Gloriously and Other Essays (and, if you don’t believe me read what some very smart people are saying about it here and here). Most people should also be receiving their copies of the latest issue of North Dakota Quarterly. If you haven’t received yours, it might be because you don’t subscribe

Next, there’s a fight for the heavy weight championship of the world on Saturday between the former champion Anthony Joshua and the current champion Andy Ruiz. If the pundits are right, it should be a brilliant contest. There’s also a gaggle of quality college football games including Ohio State versus Wisconsin in the Big 10 Championship game. In other words, there’s a lot going on!

If you have find some time this weekend, maybe there’s something to enjoy in my quick hits and varia:
