What were you doing 9 years ago?
In 1997: I was at UMASS studying my butt off for my MA exam. And I was taking one class - a seminar on Winslow Homer, which eventually made its way into my dissertation topic.
What were you doing 6 years ago?
In 2000: I was getting ready to celebrate my 1st wedding anniversary - and proposing my first dissertation topic, which I ended up changing 2 years later. I was also working as a graduate assistant, editing significant portions of text for a book on Baltic art, by mostly Russian speakers. I was the only native-English speaker on the project, so I got to clean up all the text. Fun! Fun!
What were you doing 1 hour ago: Playing with my little guy.

The chaos in my life

I remember strange and useless information (but I often can't remember what I just did 5 minutes ago!!)
As for the olmpics - my wavy scarf is coming along. Here's a picture in it's current state - which isn't too far from my last update, but I have the weekend to finish it, so I'm pluggin' along. (Sorry for the crappy picture. You can see the wave much better in person.)
Oh - and here's my little guy modeling his sweater that mom made:
(wow - this modelling is tiring!!)
