I can't believe I just walked my two dogs two miles in a Cinco de Mayo parade. I can't believe the dogs actually ate the horse droppings.

Yes I can.

I just spent 200 dollars on photocopying my dissertation to send to my committe in the hopes they'll approve of it and I'll be able to FINALLY HAVE MY DEFENSE IN AUGUST AND RESUME HAVING A LIFE.

And the tiny worm of doubt gnaws at me, reminding me of all the times the postal service has lost my stuff.

In April? That ain't right...

"In April? That ain't right..."

Well, was what I was told, and I was surrounded by 13-yr-olds that made me think of Frida Kahlo. Overdressed and intentionally excessive makeup. Bunch of candy thrown in the street. What do I know.

Lady says:"Trying to fund the dog park. Wear the green t-shirt, follow the yellow truck over there. Hand out the flyers, meet you at the booth." I say: "OK, fine."

Had thought the dogs were some shepherd mix, but it was a guess, abandoned pound dogs. After much research, we have determined them to be American (or Carolina) Dingoes. A UKC breed. They are awesome, magnificent, gorgeous animals. Brother & sister, identical twins until long familiarity, active energetic intelligent interested.....the crowd frigging loved them.

Male brought me three possums this week. That makes 11 critters he has caught and killed in 10 months. I should be horrified, I am a little, but mostly in awe.

I didn't say you were wrong, I'm just taken aback by the precipitousness of the Cinco De Mayo this year; it just seems wrong to celebrate it in April, that's all. I was expecting it the festivities to take place next weekend.

Oh, and:

From those of us still stick in graduate hell: Run, Forrest, run! Vent like the wind! Get the hell outta here!

John Biles: actually graduating from grad school is a wondrous thing. I recommend it in the strongest possible terms.

Congrats!
