belated yay

I turned in my dissertation last week! I'll officially be a doctor on 9/1/2008. Woot! :)

Now on to writing the journal version...and then maybe my academic obligations will be fully discharged. I expect that this won't be quite as taxing, since it's mostly going to involve cutting stuff and refining it so that it flows smoothly.

In other news, I signed up for a pencil drawing & sketching class at my local tech school, so I'll be happily sketching away this fall! I've been self-taught up to this point, but it's long been a dream of mine to get some official training, maybe move on to learning how to use color (oooh!)

jcobleigh and I have started watching the first season of Stargate: Atlantis on DVD. It's fun watching the characters in their earlier years. First few eps are surprisingly good. The show doesn't reach the heights of the new Battlestar Galactica or Babylon 5, but it's roughly equivalent to the generic sci-fi fun, refreshingly non-soap-operatic, occasionally interesting thoughts of Stargate: SG-1, so I'm satisfied.

God (and life) is good.


That's what DVD players are for...
one must get the dvds first you know
and i decided to cough up and pay duty and customs and all that for my scale (OOOO! SCALE!) but not ready to do it for dvds.
Don't know if i want to buy those dvds either. (I would get BSG first and any missing old stuff)
would much prefer to rent them.
but...alas...not necessarily an option here.
Alas, that is rough. Are you guys Region 1?
i once checked the listing and we are not
we use region 1
nobody will sell a non-region 1 player here or sell/rent/make non-region 1 discs here
So, for all intents and purposes
Maybe I need to check the definitions again
