Several things

When you’re a wit, you can be humble. When, like me, you’re a half-wit, you have to brag about it.

Today on F*cebook, a female friend who runs a small business announced that she’d just gotten a call from a place she hadn’t heard from before – the Yukon.

I responded, “You got the Call of the Wild.”

[Cue laugh track.]

I don’t know what I’d do for fun if I didn’t amuse myself.

Here’s where I’m at in the Long March toward my Master’s Degree. I’m formulating a theme for my capstone project.

It’s a humbling experience. Everybody seems to have a fairly clear idea what a capstone project is, except me.

Apparently it’s a research project, but a small one. Targeted, constrained. We do the research, we present the short paper, we get our sheepskins if it’s good enough, and they hold a secret ceremony in which they bestow on us the Sacred Rubber Sorter Finger.

At this point I’ve got a general direction, but not a specific topic.

I fear I’m going to have to do some actual research, to clarify my thinking.

Yes, it’s as bad as that.

Oh yes, I’m going to get my last vestigial hip replaced later this month. Expect not to expect me for a while at some point.

  1. You could mix it with something you love, such as the library systems of the ancient vikings or how to categorize the ancient sagas. Of course they will probably react like the crowd did in that movie where Sandra Bullock is in a beauty pageant and the only acceptable answer to the interview portion is “World Peace.”

    Stan Fields: What is the one most important thing our society needs?
    Gracie Hart: That would be harsher punishment for parole violators, Stan.
    [crowd is silent]
    Gracie Hart: And world peace!
    [crowd cheers ecstatically]
