Defense went so-so, but I made it!

Thanks for all the congrats ladies!
I was very nervous and actually felt quite sick, but I passed and now it's all behind me. Thanks Mr Bors! (I know he's reading this... ;)

I still can't rest on my laurels though, because I may have one little assignment that still needs to be done. I'm hoping to contact the coordinator soon to see if there is a chance for me to do it quickly so I can still get it all over with before February 16.

It was great to be back at SnB last Tuesday and I'm glad I can get back to my regularly scheduled knitting. I hope to finish my mom's cardi in February once and for all.
It seems everybody was on a fair isle spree, either in Norwegian mittens or Turkish socks. Hmmmm, made my knitter's ADD heart skip a few beats!
But first things first: I'm back to work today, AND tomorrow, so no rest for the wicked.

In other news, here are a few pics I took while roadtripping to San Francisco. My battery died halfway, and the rest of the pics are still on Dave's camera, so bear with me.

They are: Mount Shasta viewed from the car, a very cold and tired Dave, a very tired MJ and the little Mexican taco bus where we had the snarf of a lifetime. Mmmmmmmm, tacos! I think we ate 5.... ;)

I can't believe I made it.
Preparing the defense all day tomorrow. If it all goes as planned, I will have my Ba next month.

Wish me luck!

....and now I'm off to celebrate!

Status: gutted

Hi guys!
Just a little note from the saltmines, especially for Arja who really wants me to come out and play again.
I am now finally in my last week of thesis writing; next Monday the 16th, 4 PM is my official deadline.

Sing it with me: "Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!!!!"

I returned to my home country of Clog Land yesterday, and am so jetlagged that I wrote from 10 PM till 6 AM this morning.
Somebody shoot me.

The thesis is gradually starting to look like something I wouldn't mind showing to others now. ;)
But if you really want to know, I don't care about grades this time anymore, just get me the FREAK out of here!

P.s. The pics of San Francisco etc have not been uploaded yet. In the mean time, you'll have to do with this shot of a very sleepy me trying to kidnap Dave's kitty Stinky in my big blue backpack. Stinky? Oh, he stank alright, but was still soooo cute:

And yes, I am fully aware that I am now posting a picture of me without any make up on. Whatever... ;)

Happy 2006!

Happy New Year everybody!
It's been very quiet around here, hasn't it?

I've been busy with my new work and finishing my thesis so bear with me. It should be done by the 16th of January. ;)

I'm writing this from Kent, WA where I'm spending 12 wonderful days with my honey. We just got back from celebrating NYE in San Francisco and it was bloody glorious! I have pictures of course, but I'm afraid everything's on hold right now till I finish this damn thing. Yes, that also means no knitting for weeks.

Wishing you all lots of joy, happiness and knitting for the new year and hope to see you all after the 16th!
