Em ơi! #321: Staff Infection

Bryan asked, when I wrote the script for this comic, if the Dean would recognize herself.  I told him no, because I’ve changed her name, so she can’t find this.  And also, I’ve been introduced to her two or three times now, and I don’t think she knows who I am.

I would totally get a Ph.D.  if I had a way of justifying it, just because I am totally in love with the intellectual exercise of being an intellectual and reading interesting stuff and writing about it.  This is maybe the problem with not being single, I don’t feel like I can just go on getting degrees because I think they would be fun or interesting.  There has to be a (pragmatic) reason to do things.

In other news, I received my first piece of fan mail from someone who I’m not related to today.  (Or, you know, someone I’m friends with on facebook – an email from a random stranger).  All of a sudden I feel like a WRITER.  I should get these novel revisions done tout de suite.  Bryan and I also passed a lovely weekend vacation in Chicago, where we went to the Art Institute, ate a lot of food, and saw some of my favorite relatives.

  1. I have to agree. The concept of pursuing a PhD has always been alluring to me too. However, I really couldn’t think of a good reason to get it other than to have an excuse to stay in school and a reason that might explain why I hadn’t found more gainful employment.

    Keep on writing, writer. I am digging it.

    1. Ah, gainful employment, I remember that. Not all it is cracked up to be, but there are some definite benefits…

      Glad you enjoyed the writing. I dig your comics, Posky.
