Reading Finnegans Wake… and Mondegreens.

A while ago my friend Michael hosted my paper on reading Finnegans Wake on his blog. I would have put it up on here, but I thought that it was rather long and didn’t really fit the overall theme of what this blog has become. However, I’m still getting feedback on this piece from all directions, so for completeness’ sake, here’s the link to it.

Non-verbal Code-switching

I don’t drive. However, I use driver’s hand signals to communicate with them. Whenever a car stops to let me cross, I raise the hand to them that isn’t holding the bag of books or TARDIS travel mug to say thankyou. I don’t ever see other pedestrians do this. I think I got this from my dad, watching him drive, and I thought this was a nice way of showing respect and appreciation.
