Continuing Progress...

Progress Thus Far: 8 hours, 66 pages, 275 footnotes.

Why so many hours?: There is a fine line between perfectionism and insanity.

Accomplished Today: A trip to the Library in town, upon arrival discovering I was without my library card. I have the detergent to wash my clothes, but no coinage with which to do so, and I have officially given up my beloved futon chair.

Current Viewing: Since my TV went with the chair today, I officially watched my last round of English daytime viewing. I will certianly miss the antics of "Bargain Hunt," the candor of the BBC afternoon news, gameshows such as "Countdown" and "Deal or No Deal," and the rounds of entertaining, late-night documentaries. However, my handy, plane-ride ready portable DVD player has been busy with three of Michael Moore's documentaries, "What Lies Beneath" just for the hell of it, and disc two in the Jackass series.

What Next?: Perfectionism tomorrow, and a possible hand-in either tomorrow afternoon or Wednesday morning.

Advice from my Calendar: Make a space in your life for the glorious things you deserve.

I'll save this page and transpose it onto the 20th or the 21st because the prescription is a little premature.

Ahhh..the distance between insanity and genuis is measured only by success.

Good luck and may the force be with you.

COUNTDOWN. Wheeeee!

Way better than slaving over a dissertation. Unless you're going to publish it soon and make a billion trillion dollars.

Have you said what it's about? I'm going to have to go hunting for clues. My friend did his on the role of pubs in Irish political life. I'm sure some people think that was mighty cheeky, but I think he's the MOST CLEVER fellow in the world. Any excuse'll do when you need one.

At any rate, you're a superb writer and a craftswoman of ideas - I can't wait to read your dissertation.
