What's That Sound?

It's the sound of my near-final draft printing off, ready to be taken to the Department Office this morning! Rather than stay up horribly late last night, and to make sure I slept, I got up this morning at 5:00 am. It turned out that I had very little to do this morning, which was also nice. There were still a few things I was stuck on with the third chapter, and then I woke up this morning and discovered that what my chapter needed was some rearranging, and having a section from another chapter pasted into it, and not more content. Yesterday, I went through the chapter and cut out a whole bunch of unnecessary stuff that Dr. B said was slowing down the chapter (and I agree). And now I'm happy with it. I don't know what Dr. B will say, but I'm happy.

Yes, I am planning on sleeping on the plane, and I bought earplugs to help.

Goodbye for now! Yay, airplanes! (I'm such a kid: some of the most exciting parts of this trip is all the airplane flying, and taking the Skytrain in Vancouver.)

I'm singing the song Convoy but with the word Skytrain in its place in your honour
We got a great big Skytrain rocking in the night.
We got a great big Skytrain, ain't she a beautiful sight?
SKY TRAIN

Lynnie, if I am ever as cool as you I will be able to die happy.

Speaking of uncool fianc├ęs...

When I took my first history class with Dr.German and real Dr.German, Brett was the T.A. Scandalous, I know. But this was before I knew him.

I sweated it out for hours upon hours, nearly delving into a panic attack, making sure that my writing was impeccable. Getting it reviewed by English majors. Then doing a huge happy dance when I got it back with no grammar corrections! Brett guy must think I am very good.

Skip forward three years. Guess who is correcting Brett's thesis? Guess who just discovered that he didn't even pick up on all my small grammatical attention to detail because that's what I'm correcting on his thesis!
