I'm Still Here

I know, my blogging record has been pretty spotty lately. The good news is that I’ve just completed a draft of my thesis, and so am that much more hopeful that I’ll have an MA in English by the time I turn thirty in a few short months. As of about 4am yesterday, the first complete draft of my thesis weighed in at 24,970 words. I’m going to drop it in my advisor’s mail slot this evening and look forward to the revision process.

In case you didn’t get the reference in the title to this post, apparently Joaquin Phoenix and his brother Casey Affleck have been involved in some shenanigans and tomfoolery of late. Silly kids.

I’ve been staying solid with the gym routine, but even though most of the time I’m eating better too, apparently eating rich a few times a week can undo 40-50 minutes of daily cardio. Not sure how that works, but oh well. At least my heart and lungs should be improving, even if my waistline isn’t.

Anyway, thanks to GreenLAGirl, I’ll have a chance again this year to go hang out with the who’s who on the LA blogger scene over at Blogger Prom. I had plenty of fun last year, and am looking forward to another exciting time Wednesday night.

Finally, I want to mention that I recently had the privilege of attending the US premier of my friend Conor‘s first feature film, One Hundred Mornings. It was impressive, to say the least. I’m crossing my fingers for US distribution.

I’ll leave you with this video about food. (h/t: Colinski)

    Yay – I’m glad you’ll be there, Moye!! Travis canceled, so I was worried I might be a little out of my element there.On another note, I still have to fix the appearance of my blog, and also figure out why I didn’t get a notification of your comment…

    Maybe you secretly blocked me? OMG WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO WEAR? We still have to grab lunch or dinner one day soon.

    Interesting little video. Although it didn’t factor in evil corporations like Monsanto that want to control all seeds and crops. I guess I’m saying that I mostly agree.
