The burden of the everyday

I am currently crushed under the weight of unanswered email, paper deadlines, the need to make travel arrangements and about a thousand other things that make me wish I were a superhero. But then I remember that all good superheroes suffer superheavy questions like "Who am I?" and "Who do I answer to?" on a daily basis. And I'm sure that sucks more than being temporarily behind on work.

I was also thinking that, as much as I love cultural theories of everyday life, I'm sure they'd be stronger if they included the voices of, say, people living in Occupied Palestine - where urgency and joy take on new meaning.
