Learning to Spell P. h. D.

It's the final countdown.

i don't usually talk about work on the blog.  for many many reasons.  but at the moment, it's impossible to ignore.  I am defending my PhD on December 16th.  That's soon.

And so my life now revolves around finishing this paper.  Analyzing this data.  Sprinting to the finish.

And, much like writing an invite list to a wedding, the only way to really get through it is to put blinders on and do what's right for you.  Except in this case (the dissertation), it envelopes so much of my time that i really have no choice but to ignore all of my other worldly responsibilities.  And of course, the irony abounds considering that my dissertation revolves around the division of labor in marriage, and mol (ugh.  i dont like mol.  my only love just makes me think of that 70's (80's? 60's?) song and . . . i'll get back to that later.) is ending up doing most of the labor with me laboring RE: domestic labor.

You get it.

I also DO plan on finishing the blogs about my "birthday" this year.  But the next section is long. and i just don't have the time.

So, in summation.  I need a hall pass from you, my blog readers, until december 16th (well, 17th, i'll be up real late on the 16th).  I will try to get some stuff up on here.  But if it doesn't feel like the quality and quantity you are used to . . . gimme a month.
