Slouching Towards Exhaustion

February 28, 2007 at 4:56 am (thesis)

My thesis won’t die. I went back into my first chapter to “unpack” a few things I had rushed through before and now it’s like trying to stuff maggots up a hosepipe, as my colorful great uncle used to say. The damned paragraphs just won’t stay put. Life of its own etc. But one way or the other I’m defending next month. It doesn’t have to be good — it just has to be done.

And I’m going off for a PhD program this fall, for sure and for real. I’m finally going to learn Old English. That makes me so happy that I’m a little embarrassed to admit it, but what the hell.

Finally, an internet friend posted a link I thought I’d share, even though you tech savvy folks have probably known about it for a while. It’s Gode Cookery, home of “How to Cook Medieval.” Coqz Heaumez, anyone?
