I've always wanted to say that--a desire rooted somewhere in my illusions (or is it delusions) of grandeur.
The revising/writing is proceeding, though the introduction is troublesome.
And I'm apparently vying for the "shortest dissertation of the year" award. In defense of my brevity, I must say that there is some good stuff in there. Plus, I'm feeling good about it--I'd forgotten that my advisor had gone over some chapters 3 times with me, so some of them only needed a few changes before I could submit for more feedback.
Anyway, two chapters and the rest of the intro to go. Thanks for all the well-wishes!
