WutoWu #100: New Moon and Phases

Dear C and J, As Mom and I were perusing the shelves of the fine establishment Ranch 99, (actually, she was perusing – I was looking at the live crawfish), we bought some moon cakes. While it may not seem incredibly noteworthy, I did find it interesting to realize how little we notice the moon,…

WuToWu # 99: New Beginnings

Dear C and E, There’s been a lot of changes in the past two weeks since I’ve left sunny California for the somewhat less temperate weather of Massachusetts. And if you’ll excuse some self-indulgence I’d like to write down a few memories so I’ll have them for when I’m a jaded senior. I ran into…

WuToWu #96: Intertextuality

Hi Jessica! Your tardiness pales in comparison to my long absence from the blog, but after an intense and fun finals period, I am back! As part of my education in English literature this year, I’ve had to learn some fancy words: hypostatize, mimesis, textualization, tropology, metatextuality, and intertextuality. The last one, intertextuality, is interesting…
