It's so annoying, because the English Department cancelled English Drama for next term. I feel like calling them and saying, "Listen people--I need to graduate; I only have two terms left, so stop canceling classes on me!!" This is the second time this has happened in the last two weeks, and at this point, most of the sections are full, and there are hardly any classes that will fit within my already jam-packed schedule. I had to e-mail my nice advisor and ask her for (guess?) advice, because I don't know if I can take as much American Fiction as I'm taking and still be considered a true student of English Literature.

I worked today. Landon and I spent about three hours waiting for the cats at Banfield; both cats had comprehensive exams, and driving from SW to SE isn't a short drive, so we chose to stay out there and hang out at the strip-mall around Banfield: the Pet Hospital while the cats were being poked, examined, and stuck (with needles). Luckily, Dr. Krasner was working today. I'm going to send her a coupon to Starbucks for being such an excellent vet to Felix. He appreciates (and loves) her very much. So, from Felix and I, Dr. Krasner will receive a coupon to Starbucks.

I got my essay back from my professor today, and he said my thesis was very unusual, but useful. That is the best complement I have received to date on an essay. I love being unusual; the opposite of unusual is usual, and that is not an adjective I would want attributed to my writing. I am so pleased with his comments! I also thought it was very funny that he wrote, "Now watch those ellipsis!" He will go down as one of my all-time favorite professors, even though I hated him for awhile when he was riding our backs about prescriptive grammar rules. Looking back, I am very happy that he upholds these rules for students of English.
