One paper is done and now I am left with the short one, which can also be referred to as the two-page one, the thousand-word one, the ten-minute one. The problem is that although K. has assured me several times that this should only take me an evening, I picture it taking from now until Friday at 10.00, which is when I am due to read it in front of other people and then discuss it at length and intelligently with three other people who are specialists in the field. Lesson one in being a doctoral student: Your C.V. will pad itself if you stick to doing presentations, etc. on your dissertation topic. There's no need to stray to far, except that it's boring to focus on one thing for several years. Puppets, yeah! -Zh.
