When I (finally!) finished all the experiments for my dissertation and showed all the data to my advisor, he then informed me that a) it was time to start writing, and b) I needed to be finished writing by June 30. This was on May 20. You can do things like that in science because the writing doesn't have to be good, it just has to be relatively intelligible.
I do not have the words to adequately express how much I love this article and how much it fills me with joy.
@Third Wave Housewife That shit has happened to me so many times that I have completely given up on real pearl studs. I bought a pair of fakies for ~$2 about five years ago, and they're hanging on like little plastic champions. They look just like the real thing (unless someone gets waaaay closer to my ear than decency would allow), and if one does fall off, who cares? They were $2.
@cliuless It promises to be epic.
So, my best friend is getting married tonight (whee!!), and at last night's rehearsal dinner, the following things happened: the groom's father told me I look JUST like Gabby Giffords, the best man's pants fell to his ankles while standing out on St. Charles Avenue in Uptown New Orleans, and the bride ended up in bed with my mother. Just thought I'd share.
I think the 'O' might've been the best part. That and the losing of the mind.
True story: my gentleman told me over Christmas that, were the opportunity to arise, he would leave me for Ina Garten in a hot second. I tried to get mad, but I couldn't really blame him.
@Roaring Girl Yep, that is basically how it works!
@parallel-lines My cat doesn't want to have anything to do with the loud scary noises my bed makes during sex, but WITHOUT FAIL she is in the room within one minute after the sexing is over, because she knows cuddles are in the offing and she wants to get all up in that.
I sign all my e-mails with 'peace' because I have spent too much time in yoga teacher training.
