Hi guys, all aboard the night train then...*choo choo*
i cant wait till the day when i can just relax at night time and watch dvds!!!
:-s

Chrisrolinski makes a pathetically unenthusiastic "choo choo" sound.

User: ProcrastiPro - 21 September 2008 23:50

Ah, dvds...what were they again? ;-) One of those things we get in the 'After' life?
Wishing y'all more motivation tonight than I have myself!

User: chrisrolinski - 22 September 2008 00:17


I am currently thinking about the afterlife of objects. I am writing and teaching about this. At 00:15 I feel like I am in a waking afterlife. Heh.

User: ProcrastiPro - 22 September 2008 00:32

That's funny Chrisrolinski!
I am not utterly convinced at this hour of the night, and when I'm this far behind, that there is any after-phd state (not sure whether it should be called a life, precisely)... Certainly there may not be an afterjob, but best not to contemplate that one - I, at least, still feel compelled to believe in the possibility! ;-)

Lara, you seem to be writing with light-speed

User: chrisrolinski - 22 September 2008 23:50


I reckon I need to try and complete my outline by 1am. Gonna try and do it...

User: ProcrastiPro - 23 September 2008 01:24

My link to databases (EEBO & ECCO) has mysteriously quit working tonight, so am congratulating myself for having already downloaded all the stuff I had to have for references. Could do with a Coke, though (and I don't even like it)!
Trying for this sub-section by 3:30...

User: chrisrolinski - 23 September 2008 01:29

Procrastipro! EBBO, ECCO! Are you fellow eighteenth-century historian?!
