Who's that swimming up the burning Potomac?

by Cecily
Is it... could it be?.. yes! It is Ghost Abe Lincoln, clutching a tattered copy of the score to the Star Spangled Banner in one hand and a shiny new copy of my dissertation in the other!

My dissertation is over, guys. The last piece of paperwork has been walked across campus to the last office and the last dot of the last i has been dotted. OVER. The world may end, therefore, at any moment. Just in time for the Mayans to win.

I'm in DC til May, teaching 200 classes and plotting my next move. Stay tuned.


  1. That is just SUPER! You go girl!!!!
    Come visit me in Paris if you're around :)

  2. Whoa. Congratulations!
