Favorite Posts, Mentions, and Top Comments Week of 3Mar2013

I am currently in the DC area to visit friends and family and attend a pre-wedding event for one of my high school friends!  Kyle decided to stay home to get some serious work done.  I think it’s nice to have a break from one another every so often since we do spend so much time together in our normal routine.  I’m happy I live close enough to be able to drive back for these types of events and to see my parents and siblings.


The BIG NEWS of the week is that I passed my preliminary exam and it was way less scary than I thought it would be!  My committee really took it easy on me.  I think I overprepared, which I guess is okay, and I’m glad I didn’t overstress.  I so so so appreciate all the people who helped me prepare as well as the wonderful bloggers who provided guest posts so that I could free up more time to work and not stress over writing posts.  Thank you all!

Edward Antrobus perfectly characterized the nature of the courtesy letter: “My old friend Bob misses his calling. He was always sprouting double-talk gibberish. My favorite ever: it’s going to rain today. Unless it doesn’t.”
