- Finally and fully get into Battlestar Galactica, since a huge cross section of people whose taste lines up with mine finds it crucial entertainment, or
- Finish my doctoral thesis.
Remember that thesis? Yeah, me neither. This probably isn't the first time I've announced a plan to finish it to the internet and then quietly gone about my usual shirking, but seriously, at this point everyone else has finished theirs. Maybe it's a good sign that ever since I had this brainwave, I've been wanting to leave work to get started.
Except that I always, always want to leave work. There aren't even any cookies here today to keep me occupied and I could really use a cookie.
I honestly can't say why the thesis has just been floating around in limbo for so long. It's a combination of facing some Kafka-esque red tape in order to push it through, not having a deadline, not having a job that demands that I have an honest-to-goodness DMA instead of just-about-done one, and just plain forgetting that it's even waiting in the wings while I go about my stage business. I dunno. I'm disciplined about some things and not others, especially not this.
Anyway, if you're looking for me this weekend I'll be holed up with some library books that I've had checked out for actual years.
