Putting the Barthes before the horse

And I thought poststructuralism was giggly. Narratology is a laugh riot. You know a research assistantship is awesome like whoa when you get paid to read about actantial models, temporal delimitation, and the Lion of Russian folklore as representative of "the oriented thematic Force." To say nothing of the Earth, which is "both virtual Recipient of the Good" and "that for which the Lion is working." That's right, little folkloric Russian Lion! You can do it! Don't let 'em get you down!

Leila Moss as Karen O sound-a-like: yes, yes, yes. I'd only have to be about as observant as a paint bucket to notice that after listening to "The Dark Is Light Enough" eight times.
