So I've not posted for a while. And a lot of stuff has happened in the meantime. And it would be crazy to go into it all. And I should be sleeping.

But. The rundown.

I went up to Northern California for my sister's wedding and she was beautiful. While there I got into my first car accident ever...and my car was totalled...so now I have no car. But no worries, no one was hurt. So now I'm all motorcycle all the time. Which is interesting. Well, it was until the rain started. Grr...and the hail I experienced driving both to and from San Diego yesterday...though I suppose is was more frozen rain. As a side note, I now go to the boxing gym in gym shorts and chaps. It amuses people.

While up in NorCal I read an awesome crime novel...now I want more.

I presented part of my first dissertation chapter in Diss Seminar...it was well received. But, I realized I have to do some major restructuring of the project...and my advisor wants to see the chapter on the 17th...and that is stressing me out.

I need to clean my house, do laundry, buy groceries and all of that. And write, write like the wind. Thinking about being on the job market and the craziness of the department, and all that...stressful.

But what makes it all better? One of the most hilarious things ever. This makes me laugh over and over and over. If you want that sort of insight into me, here you are.



You are not a scientist from the future...like I AM.

So... did you place that warning about inappropriate content on your post, or did someone else. I'm not sure I understand.

BTW, the glamazon huntresses were awesome. I was giggling out loud.

this sketch makes me laugh and laugh and laugh too. [livejournal.com profile] thebrownhornet and I used to often say "Huntressessess......ATTACK now."

i'm glad you're doing okay after the car wreck!

So sorry about the car accident. I'm glad everyone is okay. I totaled my car in my first--and only--car accident. It sucked. But now I get to brag that I lived in LA for three years w/o a car (we did share Matt's, though... that's kinda like having a motorcycle... right?).

Even more exciting is the first dissertation seminar chapter! And thanks for making me giggle. My day needed a pick-me-up.

Yikes sorry to hear about the car accident, but I'm glad to hear that you're alright.

Good luck with the whole dissertating process--it'll be over before you know it.

I'm going to be in Westwood on Monday afternoon (a week from now). Let me know if you want to grab a cup of something and commiserate.

Oh, noes! I'm sorry to hear about your car (but happy to know everyone is okay)! At least you have alternate transportation.

As far as crime novels, I recommend the series written by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Childs. They're fairly good, and I like the characters.

Am very sorry to hear about your car, But I assume you weren't hurt since you said nothing about that. That's one good thing.

I want to hear more about the novel.
