feel nervous
forget everything
make three return trips to house to collect the items I forgot
pick up drafts of spreads
suck in my breath when the drafts are $30 more than expected because someone (accidentally) misled me about the pricing difference between Premium Bond and Newsprint (the latter being $.50/page more than I was told)
hold my breath as I pull the spreads out of their wrappers
let out my breath and feel like weeping when I see them
think they are absolutely beautiful
order the rest of the copies
vow to turn in cheapy versions for my thesis, so the beautiful versions can be mine all mine
feel guilty about this vow
work on cheapy version of book
realize how much I like my friends
realize how lucky I am
realize how exhausted I am, and vow to spend entire holiday break drinking hot chocolate and relaxing
stay up to 5am almost every night
stay in bed until nearly noon every morning
forget about my responsibilities
work on book
Almost done right love bug? You can do it! Can't wait to see the book! Miss you terribly terribly terribly.
'almost done, you can do it' has been the mantra for awhile now...

miss you wretchedly

and wanted to say i got the idea of how to make my book cheapy for the dept by seeing how you had your thesis bound sideways... went and studied it in the library. so, I'm going to do the same thing with my spreads.

good saving moment, wigent.

talk soon
soon to be added to the list:

run up to the top step of the museum, raise fists up high high high (ideally sporting terrycloth headband and wristbands), and yell yell yell, that's right, motherfuckers. i am done. now how do you like them apples?
Ya woman, you'r doing it.. doing it all at once but doing it nonetheless!

You rock!
I hope to see your beautiful books when you come round this neck of the woods.

I am looking forward to seeing you as well.
Hang in there, woman!
I miss you too..
man, so ready. to yell on the sidewalks. shake the fists. make something else happen. after the hot chocolate of course... even if the adviser told me today to rethink the caffeine dangers of said beverage.

& lolly, will see you soon and totally promise to (again) kick your ass at pool and air hockey both. good luck with your own deeds, too.
