Better Living Through Chemistry

Ok, the anti-depressants have kicked in and I'm feeling much better.

In other news, I have successfully completed the coursework section of my masters program, and am now in proud possession of a Graduate Diploma in Gastronomy. It is important that we all realize that this means I'm smarter than you. No, not you, Kim, but everyone else. I have officially begun my dissertation, which is on the use of food in American sitcoms. The research is extensive and exhausting. I'll bet none of you even remember the episode of "Lucy" where Lucy tries to smuggle a 25-pound cheese back from Italy by pretending it's her child. See what I mean? Exhausting.

    Being a foodie living in Hawaii with an obvious sense of humor, I thought you might like "The Book of SPAM."

    I hate it when Kim is smarter than I am! But I love when the anti-depressants kick in.

    Congratulations! You deserve it.

    Whoa! Holy load-a news, there, Ms. Kristin. Congratulations all over the place.
    I think your dissertation sounds like a hoot even though it's hard to make it. Think of it as a complex recipe, perhaps?
    What happened with the original one, the one about Hawaiian foods?
    Good luck and congratulations again!!

    Thanks, Janice, Tim and Lora and anonymous! Yeah, now there's that whole "job" thing to think about...

    I LOVE the Book of Spam!

    There was no ceremony. They just sort of said, "ok, you're done. See you at dissertation prep week."

    Very anti-climactic. Such is life.
