Wow, I haven't updated this in a long time.

1. I made it back to the States and am visiting my parents for the greater part of the summer, in between traveling to see family and weddings. My parents' town is not London with all its entertaining distraction, so I should get a lot of writing on my dissertation done, in theory.

2. Kalamazoo & the International Congress on Medieval Studies happened! My paper went really well, and I might get to publish it! Also, I got kidnapped periodically by my professor to meet people, and also to discuss what I have been doing for the past year (I'm on target, apparently, hurrah!). And scholars that I quoted in my paper attended my session and liked my talk, so that was really exciting.

3. After returning from the conference, I got to actually unpack, because my dad's intern who had been staying with my parents moved into her own apartment, in preparation for her upcoming marriage at the end of the month. I suspect the next week and a half are going to be busy, since my parents are both involved.

4. We had friends with adorable 14-month-old twin boys who like to get into everything visiting this past (extended) weekend! I think everything breakable has been returned to its original location.

5. My parents and I went to see Star Trek tonight! We've been watching the series(es) since I was 5, apparently. I didn't realize the tradition went back that far, but Saturday night was always pizza and Star Trek night. We enjoyed the movie very much! And Mickey Smith joined Star Fleet in Future-London! One more excellent bingo connection!

You worked your patoot off for it; well deserved.
