Filed Under (Thesis) by catharine on Oct-21-07

It’s really done now–there’s no turning back. After a seemingly endless editing process, during which I began strongly to suspect that I was in fact illiterate, I have submitted my manuscript to the thesis office, and although I will have to complete their edits as well, it is now certain that I will graduate in December. I’m breathing great sighs of relief. They tell me I am the 266th soul to be rid of their manuscript this semester–cheers to all 266 of us and whoever came after me.

I inked the final versions of my reconstruction of La Belle‘s standing and running rigging, both of which you can view if you’d like to see an image of my final research. Soon it will be published on the web, so if you happen to be one of the half dozen people or so who takes an interest in 17th-century French rigging, you can peruse it until your heart’s content.

I’m trying to decide how much energy I’ll have to pour into other activities now that this is finally finished–right now it seems to be directed toward our Halloween costumes: a worthy diversion. Stay tuned for images of the Dread Pirate Cliff and his booty, played by yours truly.

I am VERY intrigued by the booty….(are we talking loot here? or something more racy?) Meanwhile we’re debating whether or not we’re going to be John and Yoko with a hippie toddler or not…… :) MISS YOU!
