ramble through the bronx

yes, this here is ramble through the bronx, the continuing musings of a graduate student* who should be writing her dissertation, but honestly, living in new york city there's really so much else to do...

* and her commenting friends. And guest blogger.

Dryden's Index

Days since last class taught = 4
Days since Spring Break officially began = 3
Beers drunk = 11
Wine drunk (glasses) = 6
Whiskies drunk (ounces) = 2
Boys phone number given to = 1*
Boys I guess I'm still kind of seeing, but not really excited about, but oh well, may as well continue to see where it goes, until something better comes along = 1
Bright pink t-shirts bought (with little butterfly embroidered on, hopelessly, hopelessly, girly) = 1
Papers graded = 0
Books bought in hopes that they will provoke dissertationy thoughts = 3
Work done on dissertation = 5 minutes
Serious thoughts about dissertation = 0
Letters written to former professors = 1**
NYC mayors seen up-close during St Patrick's Day Parade (whose hands I had no desire to shake, but could have, since I was so close) = 2
Books read for pleasure = 2***

* I doubt he'll call. But he was pretty cute. And he had an adorable Minnesota accent. Do you want the story? It's cute. It involves Husserl, accents, group therapy, and a woman with a strange, strange name.

** I finally got around to writing the letter to Graeme Nicholson I've been meaning to write. Now I have to put a stamp on it. I found one of his books at the Strand yesterday, and bought it. (The Strand, by the way, is all renovated, and stuff is much, much easier to find than previously. YAY!!)

*** I re-read Eggers' A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, and read Susan Jacoby's Freethinkers: A History of American Secularism, which I strongly recommend for all those who tire of enforced american religiosity.
