I've spent the last several hours scheduling out a bunch of schedules and stuff for a committee. It's not what I signed up for when I got a phud in English, you know? It's time-consuming, nit-picking, playing with numbers and dates and stuff, and not at all metaphorical or fun.
And yet, I feel strangely satisfied that I've completed a draft of something, and that it is potentially useful.
I am, right now, deeply in touch with my inner bean counter, and she is happy.
