Done deal

The lid is shut. The book is closed. The coffin's nailed. The ceremony has closed with a rousing benediction. After a week of tortuous thought and probing consideration, Girl-E has accepted her next assignment in this thing called life. In theory, it is an occassion for much rejoicing. In practice, it means that come September, she will have to get up way, way before 10:30, dress respectably, and occupy herself in the service of others for 8+ hours each day, not including weekends, we hope. Hours she could be writing to you all. Hours she could be reading for fun. Hours she could be wandering through the cemetery. Hours she could be bodysurfing. Hours she could be sleeping it off.

However, we must all earn our keep in this world, and when it comes down to it, Girl-E is not without a sense of purpose and ambition. It's just when you've spent a year nearing clinical insanity at the hands of Turkish 8-year-olds, and then have a few months rest, it takes quite a mountain of will and energy to jump on the train once again. But as this job requires tucking one's self snug in the top-most rafters of one of the world's highest Ivory Towers, there will be no Turkish-8-year olds.

Hallelu, indeed.
