Really...RAWTHER Busy.

Rilly...I've been EVER SO BUSY this week, I simply have not had a MOMENT to blog.

It is my job to see that 60 doctoral students get all their dissertation approvals, final copies, copyright paperwork, all other niggling little details out of the way by 4:30 today, so that they graduate this June.

They're calling, panicking, e-mailing, panicking...really absolutely terrified that I'll turn them away and say they can't graduate because their page numbers don't line up or I Don't Like Their Font. At 4:30, I'll get at the very least, 3 tearful phone calls, from students who ignored my advice to do all this a day or two early, who are desperate for an extension of the deadline because "the copy place lost my dissertation..." It would be funny, if it weren't just a little sad, in a way.

So you see...I'm an absolutely important person.

Look for me this evening, drinking in Harvard Square with my office mates. I'll be the tired-looking one... with the twitch.

You notice how everyone's too scared to comment? Maybe they've all got dissertations to get in and will not tempt fate.

It wouldn't let me comment on Saturday, the blogger sign just kept swirlling away. I was going to say ..'the power the power...' Seems sort of daft now though.
