i'm feeling a little bit squicky about my dissertation. see, my genius idea was to take all these disarrayed opinions, sort them out, and say who was right (in my eyes). sadly, one of those learned authors has already done just that, and come to the exact same conclusion as me.
so i kind of need a new angle, and am torn between stretching my current idea to fit; or throwing it aside completely and cutting a new one (of the same cloth).
and instead of actually working on this, i'm blogging and eating copious amounts of chocolate and rocking gently back and forth and being otherwise evasive.
