It arrived this morning. And it is nice and supportive, and new and shiny. Makes me want to properly clean up my room now that I have nice things.
Also, because I am in a good mood...
This cute cat wants an APA interview very badly. (APA = American Philosophical Association, whose Christmas meetings are the place to go for first-round interviews, for doctorate students trying to get professor jobs.) Many people have questioned the wisdom of forcing broke grad students to (1) get a hotel room in D.C. at their own expense; (2) at Christmas; (3) often on less than a week's notice. This cat seems to have the proper degree of skepticism.
Aside from the cute pic, the comments are truly chuckle-worthy. My favorite:
That cat is wearing a flashy tie. Disqualified!
Also, the lack of pants is not encouraging.
His ideas about Descartes intrigue me, however.
