John has disappeared from our lives...

John is trying to finish his dissertation. He didn't have much time to begin with but when he reread the fine print on the "rules" for graduating he found out he had even less time. On Monday he discovered that instead of having till next Thurs, he really needed to be done this Thurs. Of course, if he needed longer he could get it but I guess they are very, very grumpy about it so he decided not to deal with it and just finish this week. I think he is planning to rejoin society Friday afternoon after he has caught up on all the sleep he missed this week trying to get everything done by Thurs. Maybe he'll rejoin the family then too ;)

Oh, the painful memories. Just wait until he has to turn in his pages for format proofing. We're talking about a woman who spends her entire life checking dissertation margins. Scary woman, scary office, scary job. I still get the gibblies thinking about her.

@brian - I had to talk to that lady (the one with the horse pictures up and seems pretty dang grumpy) to hand in my request for oral form ( a day late ). I'm not looking forward to the final formatting thingey.
