Say What?

Tuesday, January 01, 2008

A long time ago, in a state sort of far away, our hero started graduate school to get a PhD in political science. He wasn't sure why he was doing it - he basically just couldn't think of anything better to do. I mean, how hard could it be? Our hero was, of course, an idiot who didn't know anything, and had the inestimable pleasure of spending the next TEN YEARS taking classes, passing his comps, deciding he didn't want to finish, being instructed that he was GOING to finish, getting married, moving across the country, setting the damn thing aside, picking it up again, working full time jobs, getting an extension, etc., etc., goddamn etc.

A while ago our hero decided that unless he finished by January 1, 2008, there was no way he'd be able to complete the dissertation on time. Well, today is January 1, 2008, and he finished the accursed bane of his twenties about 10 minutes ago (a few years into his thirties...).

Now he will sit back in shock with a glass of scotch and a head full of disbelief. Because he is (that is, I am) done writing my dissertation. It just doesn't sound right, does it?
