It just occurred to me that I've been registered here for almost a whole year, and I've only posted forty-something times. And most of those were to argue with John Doe about feminism.
Right. So, I'm Laura, how d'you do? I make my modest living as a graduate student at the University of Chicago. Got my master's degree this week (yippee yay!), and I'm on track to get my Ph.D. in two or three more years. Then, I guess, I'll be Dr. Laura.
Current non-work-related projects, in no particular order:
Making pies out of as many things as I can think of that start with the letter P.
Coddling three impatiens plants into brightening my office with their flowers.
Following the brilliant basketball career of Mike Dunleavy, Jr., which sadly is over until next season.
Collecting Celestial Seasonings tea boxes and cutting them up to decorate my room.
Teaching myself Latin. Or rather, re-teaching...I took a class six years ago, but I've forgotten it all.
Keeping my clavichord in tune. (Clavichords are like pianos, except they go out of tune more often. )
Current work-related projects include fixing a $100,000 laser and debugging a computer program that's almost as old as I am.
My favorite color is purple, and my favorite number is 17. And that's enough for right now.
