This Open Thread is Full of Beans

We’re exhausted after repainting the walls, rearranging the furniture and hauling all our old stuff to Goodwill, so here’s an open thread for all of us to flop into for the evening.  Click through for the hot commenting action and a bit of music for inspiration.  I’ll make sure the coffee pot is full.

Surprise! It’s Erasure!

Hi everyone! How’s summer treating you all? Personally, I’m kind of bummed that my first summer post-dissertation is looking suspiciously similar to my last summer pre-dissertation: up to my eyes in writing projects and course prep. Any academic Sephies out there want to commiserate?

I want to take a moment to rave about the Adele concert I went to last night… she was AMAZING live! Whenever I go to a concert I’m prepared for the singer/band to not quite live up to CD quality, but she totally does! I couldn’t understand some of what she was talking about between songs (I was in the back, and have a horrible time with accents), but you could tell she was down to earth and kept cracking herself up. If you have a chance to see her live, DO IT!!!

My application for my first choice grad program went to the admissions committee today and I am FREAKING OUT, man. I thought I still needed to submit another letter so I had at least a week before I needed to start checking my status with my breath held in case it said “rejected,” but I don’t! They could reject me tomorrow! Eeeeeek!

I need to get a good bottle of wine for the eventual celebration or drowning of regrets.
