I passed my oral defense! Next up, dissertation proposal! Sorry for the sudden silence again. The day after my defense, we had a houseguest arriving to stay for the week. Blogging seemed rude. NaBloPoMo is a lost cause for me, now, but my friend Austen is still on a roll over at Basil and Butterflies! Also, frequent guest-poster Cristina White has moved her blog and has a great review of the Michael Jackson movie, “This Is It,” up at her new site.
