Discipula sum, literata ero... Ergo studere ibo.
Wow.

There was an actual living, breathing, human being (or possibly a lifelike robot built by students, but that would be okay, too) who replied to my e-mail to Cambridge. And sent clear, precise instructions as to what I should do with my recommendations.

I'm in shock.

Cambridge... you're just too good to me.

If you get in you have to tell me all about John Marenbon, the great man. I'd love to meet him sometime. Also, what's your email addy so I can email you my dissertation? x

I'll do that -- I went to talk to him back in September, he's a really nice guy. Very stereotypically professorial, but obviously unbelievably intelligent. (But I've heard he's a bit difficult to keep focused sometimes, if you're one of his advisees...)

greatbritannia at gmail dot com. Thanks! I'm looking forward to reading it. :-)

I got your dissertation, thanks -- I'll have a read of that after I finish yet another textual analysis (we've done... I think 9 so far this year) for Tuesday.
