might just kill us off. Unfortunately we’re more tired than when the break began! Too much computer time and moving sluggishly around the house. When I imagined us in grad school together, I think I was hoping we’d be a bit livelier than this!
But we did sneak out (don’t tell our advisors) on a bird-watching expedition today. Yup, I took a break from papering to sit on the slope of a road ditch, binoculars glued to my face, to peer at . . . Canada geese. You heard me. Okay, so we were actually hoping to look at the ducks that were much farther away, but the big geese loomed large in my binoculars, and were a lot more interesting than the blurry dark dots in the distance that Sydney told me were ducks. How does he know?
