Progress of the Lemming, now speeding rapidly off the cliff - zero.
I've hit a massive brick wall with Chapter Three, thanks to Ralph and a few of his peers.
#3 and #4 have yet to send a smoke signal my way.
I've sent two e-mails to my advisor (may he live forever) in the last week and he has responded to neither. (This is comparable to me going without caffeine for a week: unheard of.)
The editor is now obsessed with convincing me that sentences can begin with conjunctions, and likes to send me further examples of its correctness.
I realize that there are plenty of people in the world with much larger problems than mine at the moment, so I'll shush. Wallowing in self-pity will solve none of this.
On a very different note, I am surprised and intrigued to learn that Sen. Evan Bayh (D-IN) was one of the 13 to vote against making Rice Sec. of State. I expected no votes from, say, Kennedy and Boxer, but 13 nays interests me greatly. NPR said that this is the largest number of nays for this post, second only to a 1925 vote that I know nothing about, but probably should.
It's hardly surprising that I like seeing an intellegent and educated woman in such an important position, though I am saddened to note that she achieved all of this by not having a family. (Yes, it's possible that she didn't want one, I know, I know.)
(Scurries off to read more about it.)
Words Written: zero (sigh)
