Progress is being made. It is much easier to work on a paper when you've got a warm, cuddly kitty curled up in a ball beside you. (Ellie's been napping next to me for the last hour.) (I'm skipped "In this White House" and "It's Surely to their Credit." I'm up "The Portland Trip" where the gay guy is arguing with Josh against gay marriage, and I want to smack him.) This paper might actually, you know, get done. Wow.
