Whoopee in Hell Mix #5: Solitary Man (a mix for staying in for days at time)

So I realized today that I hadn't left the house in almost four days.

This is not ideal.

In my non-teaching life, I'm a writer (well, a dissertator--which means I'm a writer), and a variety of self-imposed deadlines are fast approaching. I have a scholarly article on Nigeria's ruling party (the People's Democratic Party--an ironic name if ever there was one), and the first chapter of my dissertation, both of which need to be done by the end of the month. so I'm at the desk, suffering from internet-induced ADD, getting little done (but, as my wife would point out, at least I'm showering).

So, here's a mix for the self-imposed shut-ins among us (especially tho
se of us trapped in a tiny, somewhat stinky one-bedroom with a lovely wife and a pile of books to the ceiling).
