*sigh*

(That was a sigh of relief, by the way.)

I handed in the pre-defense draft of my dissertation last week, and soon I’ll defend and revise and hopefully graduate. So it’s not over yet, but a lot of the worst is past. Whew. Also happy news, for those who read Shakesville (and if you don’t, I can’t recommend it highly enough!), the blogmistress Melissa came back this week after considering quitting the blog due to complete and completely understandable burnout. I’m so happy to hear she is feeling better, and delighted that I get to keep reading her brilliant and poignant and funny posts!

While things will probably stay slow here as I wrap up the degree and teaching for the semester, I’ll try to be a bit better when it comes to blogging now. And to start that off, based on Liss’s excellent example, I will do my very first Cat Update post. (Due to my broken camera, for now these will be recycled cat photos, but in the future expect some exciting new ones!) Since I have some very memorable cats, this will add to the “pseudo” part of my only pseudo-anonymity. But that’s okay.

So without further ado, I give you a couple of cute kitties:
