I am a banana in pajamas.


Let me rejoice in this glorious time, when I can be in pajamas for most of the week and blame it on my status as a graduate student. I had a big retreat on Friday and Saturday for Japan and now I have nothing until Thursday morning. Which means I celebrated Martin Luther King in my pajamas perusing facebook. And while I did indeed watch the presidential ceremonies today and I did tear up and fall in love with the Obama daughters, etc., I did also return to bed after I saw George W. board the helicopter.

I do have more important things to do. I can get dressed, go for a walk, do the dishes, clean our apartment or do the laundry, or take out the trash... Or really more importantly, I could do my homework. I have some reading to do, especially for all of the many book reviews that are due at the end of the semester AKA in two months. And if I did do my homework, it would certainly lend credence to any of my arguments when they do happen, with Dennis about just how busy I am as a graduate student. (As in "hey, I work really hard! I'm a full-time graduate student!")

I think that this is my last year to use this excuse. I am finishing classes in December and while I expect for the comprehensive exams to be really tough (the ones I must pass in order to get my degree in April of 2010...), I know that a year from now I am going to be worrying more about my resume (which I still need to write...) and all of the real grown up stuff that comes along with GROWING UP.

I'm rejoicing. And freaking out.

Lounging in PJ's all day? SIGN ME UP! :-)

Sounds like your stress level has gone down atleast!

I missed the inauguration by *seconds*...we were watching it on a computer at work and right up until the swearing in, nobody had walked through our office all morning and all of a sudden there were 14 people in there all talking to us, then about 15 seconds after he was sworn in, they all left! BLERG!!! :-)

Somehow, the "banana" word reminds me of that guy in American Idol last week. He was singing something like, "Do you want a banana?" etc. It was hilarious!
