This may sound kind of corny, but while writing the related work section of my proposal right now I had what I can only describe as a "clear thought." (My advisor is notorious for being highly critical of certain areas of computer science, and I recall him once characterizing someone as having "never had a clear thought in his life!") But I feel like I have now identified a very common confusion in distributed programming language practice, I think that my clear thought is novel, and I love that feeling. It makes me remember why research is fun, and made me spontaneously turn to my officemate and say, "I like my thesis." (Not a common phrase recently. ;))

Also this old album-a-day I recorded with Marc is sounding really good to me right now. Maybe I am just in a good mood!

You seem to adore to be easily distracted.

Hello, hi Tom 7, this is NOT the point!

You have to write your thesis, go for it, so it will be done.

No more poor excuses.

I'm looking forward to read your very intelligent proposal final thesis, damn urghdhccch

Hogwash! That clarity of thought IS the point.

I like my thesis. My platonic one, that exists out there in the ether. The one that, as you so astutely predicted, my Black Friday letter encourages me to start thinking about :)

My English seems to be so shitty! Noone ever understands what I'm trying to say, I guess I'd better shut my mouth and stop writing comments in English.

Sorry, I didn't wan't to confuse anyone. I thought it was fun - but in fact, it's not.

(Does anyone speak/write French or German?)

I speak French a bit worse than you speak English. Maybe I can translate your comments for Tom to make things even more zany.

Wm: Told you I've got this thing down!

Kirima, don't worry about it. =) I appreciate your comments even when I don't understand. What Jason says is right though: I was describing a small success, and even though I was indeed being a little lazy by taking the time to post about it on my blog, it is indicative of me doing exactly the sort of work that I'm supposed to be doing. And I'm so close to being done!
