Lots of fun around here today...
This morning, I didn't go to the pot luck brunch I'd been invited to.
Then in the afternoon, I didn't go to Reading Terminal Market for the Harvest Festival. (I did, however, go to the farmer's market stands in Rittenhouse Square Park to pick up some apples for the upcoming week.)
And finally in the evening, J and I did not go to the pot luck dinner we'd been invited to.
Instead, J nursed his perpetual hacking phlegmy cough and watched his alma mater lose a big game, while I typed at my dissertation in hopes of making a dent. I think I made a nick, which I guess is better than nothing. I've still got tomorrow to finish this up (this being the 40-page introduction, and not the whole thing, of course) and there's nothing like a looming meeting with my advisor to cause words to come flying out of my fingertips and onto the virtual page.
(In case any of you are new readers to my blog, I have actually written more than just the introduction. I've also written the majority of the three content chapters, so once I'm done with the introduction, I just have bits and pieces of the content chapters to finish up, and I have to write the discussion. According to my advisor, the discussion should be "easy". We shall see about that.)
