So, here’s a problem for you. I’m heading down to New Orleans on Tuesday for a conference where I’m giving a paper with two of my intrepid colleagues. We’re each exploring an aspect of writing pedagogy where old and new media collide (a la Henry Jenkins).
My real issue is this: what to wear.
Instead of finishing my paper or re-reading Jenkins, I’m crusing the internet checking out weather, possible restaurants, and the music scene. According to weather.com, it’s supposed to be 79 degrees. Yet I’m always suspicous of forecasts. For one thing, just because the weather’ s warm doesn’t mean that I’ll be. I’m cold blooded, plus I’ve got those winter white legs permanently lined from my Smart Wools. Don’t even get me started on my toenails.
Can I wear clogs in the south? Will they laugh at me?
