05/11/2005: If I'm remembering correctly.....
Abby's defending her dissertation today. If not today, then it's tomorrow. Go wish her well. And remember that this month's Blogger's Bash is in her honor (in part). So be there or be square.
("Defending a dissertation" is a turn of phrase which always conjures up, in my mind, that Abby (or whatever Ph.D. candidate is being mentioned at the time) is in a dark alley, when she comes upon a typed manuscript cowering in the shadows, about to be molested by a few toughs. Of course, she then jumps into action, and with a few impressive martial arts moves renders the toughs unconscious (or maybe she just pulls a high powered firearm and blows them away. Depends on what kind of fantasy appeals to me at the time.))
