Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

02/21/2005: Congratulations are in order....

Abby's done dissertating.

Well, not quite (I think). She says she's done with the first draft; my guess is that there's still quite a bit of editing to go. But she's probably over the major hump, and it's (mostly) downhill all the way from here (of course, that's easy for me to say; I've never dissertated). But go over to her blog and give her some love in the comments; she deserves it.

And then show her some real love and buy some Abby Stuff. (Note: Abby, I get paid once a month, and this month as most months I've got way too much month left at the end o'my money. So forgive me for holding off on buying my own Abby Stuff until next payday, which ain't too far off....)

UPDATE: Well, checking the comments it appears Abby's closer to being done dissertating than I'd have guessed; while the complete first draft is done, apparently several chapters have been gone over enough between her and her advisor that they're a bit farther along the process than "first draft" makes it sound. So the editing isn't nearly as extensive as I was lead to believe.

Cool! Now kick butt and take names in the dissertation defense!
