countdown

soon I must go get hooded. this morning in my email was a detailed message describing how to get hooded properly. you drape your hood across your left arm and present it to your hooder which is fine as long as the stress doesn't keep me from being able to tell left from right. the nice thing is that there are several PhD students ahead of me so I will get to watch how they do before I have to do it.

I have to figure out what to wear now. I guess it's going to be black and white and look like a waiter despite my best intentions.

as I've been reading your posts about finishing up the Ph.D., I've been looking back on the years I've "known" you. I just wanted to say how very cool this all is and i'm so damned impressed. congratulations, erik.

thanks mary. what a long strange trip. it really wasn't supposed to take ten years but sometimes you just have to roll with it.

oh that would have been a good idea! fortunately, judith came over to where the grad students were huddling under a stairway before the thing started and she gave us a little tutorial on how to do. I draped the thing over my left arm very early on and just let it stay there.
