Frabjous

Hee. One of my committee members (who was my undergraduate advisor) just came in to tell me that my qualifying paper was the best thing I've ever written and full of provocative, lovely things and I did a great job and he's looking forward to my defense. (Yes, with multiple conjunctions. Just like that. Really. Yup.)

So, hee.

There's a reason that man got put in my acknowledgements. And I quote: "To Norbert Hornstein for encouraging me when I had large, man-eating doubts about the viability and validity of any of this."

Hee hee hee. Hee.

Yeah, Norbert is great. I loved his syntax class; it was always very, very amusing. And he's great at picking people up, and such. Great! Yeah.

My luck at just randomly falling into this department without planning never ceases to amaze me.

[grin] Exactly so. The same thing happened to me, only with David Lightfoot's syntax class.

congrats!

my phd advisor told me last month that my dissertation proposal was the most well-presented, well-discussed paper he'd seen in quite a while. now i just need to convince the doctoral committee that i'm a worthy enough person to join their little geeky gang. :)

Heh.
