The Last Straw

After lurking for months in the comment section here, including a recent comment that was almost as long as the original post, The Wife has finally decided to strike out on her own and start up a dissertation-blog (using Blogger instead of TypePad, for some reason) called EdC. Welcome, sweetie—I mean, "Terminal Student"!

I don't know about you, but I'm already fascinated because she's writing about my favorite subject:

I am married to a grad student in linguistics. His blog is here. I expect him to show up and post snarky comments from time to time [Oh, you know it, baby!]. Just grit your teeth and ignore him--I do. The nice thing about our situation is that he has a good understanding of what it's like to take the endless classes and the angst of writing term papers and how do I register and what paperwork do I fill out? I don't plan to write about him much, though. It's not that he isn't worth writing about. He's actually pretty interesting. But this just isn't That Kind of Blog.

Hmm, apparently her blog is not primarily going to be about me, which is kind of a bummer. Also, I think this is the first time anyone's ever accused me of being understanding, but I'm pretty sure she meant it as a compliment. In any case, the real focus of her blog is going to be the process of writing her dissertation. Let's all wish her luck in her progress from Ed.C. to Ed.D.!

I am The Tensor, and I approve this post.
