Sabbatical


The dissertation demands my undivided attention for the foreseeable future, so I'm going dark for a good long while. Good luck with everything, keep running and try not to set anything on fire while I’m away. That would be bad.

Later gators.

Thakfully some darkness. Maybe I'll get some sleep!

Best wishes completing your masterpiece. But if you turn up in Italy again...

Slacker, that should have been done a month ago.

Do what you've gotta do. We'll be anxiously awaiting your return.

Good luck, good luck, GOOD LUCK!!

You should've posted that pic of us from yesterday frolicking in the sand in a Costa Rican paradise instead of that typewriter.

Speaking of awaiting your return - DEB!!!!

I'm dying to know the actual, published title you end up with.

Oh poor Xenia. I hadn't realize the full difficulty of your position, trying to write a dissertation in Oxford, until this evening's viewing of Lewis:

Lewis: So... you have a lot of flings?
Suspect (shrugs): This is Oxford.

I hadn't appreciated how hard it would be for you to concentrate on your work with all this flinging going on. Please don't feel afraid to ask for help, for someone to share the burden of all these flings. Send some of 'em my way. I'll deal gently with them. Anything for a friend.
