Please excuse my silence. I'm working on the dissertation. In fact, I've already written several pages this evening (yay me!). I've promised myself I'll have a complete draft of The Chapter That Refuses to Be Completed finished by noon tomorrow, even if it means cutting sections from it.
I will finish, dammit!
More soon. . .
UPDATE: Well, I blew the noon deadline, and I'm meeting with my adviser in an hour so I have a bus to catch in a few minutes. I've printed out 52 pages of TCTRTBC. I think it may hit 70 pages, at which point Fantastic Adviser will certainly tell me to divide it into two chapters, each of which will need to be further fleshed out and made to stand on their own. Grrrrr.
