Malaise? What Malaise?

I might have an occasional crisis of confidence, not to mention competence, but no malaise here. I just emailed my second and final research paper to my instructor, a full seven hours before the deadline. I am relieved. And now, it's time for leftover turkey. I'll be back later with a real post. I'm all written out for now.

Leftover turkey? You had leftover turkey last year!

themom said...

Sometimes you reach a point where you think your fingers will start to bleed...don't ya think??? Take a break and enjoy the leftovers.

DCup said...

Hey, Dr. MVM, next thing you know, you'll be wearing your pants rolled up to the knees.

CDP - Phew! Now on to conquer finals! See your writery self soon.

I have found that attempting to write a paper of great length is nigh impossible after multiple large meals per day of turkey.

However, if you nap on your keyboard, sometimes it writes 30 pages of "sdasocaksmcaosa" for you, which is sadly better than what you were going to write anyway.

I sent my paper in too. Doesn't it feel great?

I skipped the turkey and went straight for the wine.

enc said...

I think you've earned a nine-year break from writing by now, but I sincerely hope you won't take one because I'd miss you.

CDP said...

Dr M--ha ha ha!

themom--I did and they were still good!

Dcup--I'm in countdown mode in more ways than one!

Pistols--Sadly, I resemble that remark.

Fran--you are always thinking, aren't you?

enc--thank you! No, not nine years, and knowing me, probably not even nine days.

I was laughing about your kid hating turkey - my dad hates turkey and spends all Thanksgiving AND Christmas day complaining about it. Wah wah wah, dad!

A turkey coma is blissfully second to a good wine buzz.

CDP said...

Beck--7yo also hates ham, so he has another, and entirely different, reason to complain on Christmas (although Christmas means homemade macaroni and cheese, so he's reconciled to the ham)

Michaele--and why should these things be mutually exclusive?

Matty Boy said...

The joke is he never said 'malaise', did he? Did you find out who first did say malaise?

Word verification: hyper

I don't really have a joke here, but I love it when the W.V. is an actual word.

CDP said...

Matty--I didn't find out definitively...I read a long interview with Hamilton Jordan (done in 1981) and he seemed to think it was an editorial columnist...Safire, maybe; he was tough on Carter.

Boy, everyone I know is struggling to finish papers, prep for finals, etc.--except me. I feel a little guilty.... and lonely!
