Finishing up a paper on Dr. Seuss for class (Klonked, Bonked, Jerked, Berked, & Bopped: Scalar Implicatures in Dr. Seuss, for interested parties), and would like to take a quick moment to do a couple of things:

1. Say, I STINKIN' LOVE DR. SEUSS.  I know that I am in no way unique for having a love of Dr. Seuss (my favorite being There's a Wocket in my Pocket), but he is always able to put a smile on my face.  Those silly wockets.

2. Express a gratitude for being in a Master's program that allows me to pick my own subject matter.  As a general rule, I refuse to work with a piece of literature that I don't love.  Why on earth would I chose to work on War & Peace (sorry, Tolstoy fans), when I can write about Yertle the Turtle and the Sneetches?

3. Bask in the possibilities of summer that lie ahead.  Will I spend the next two weeks (before I head back to school) doing some sewing work that I've been dying to finish, soak up some sunshine, or going on adventures with the fiance and my cousins?  Who knows?  Oh, the possibilities.

Wish me luck on this paper and my last final.

Anyone else have big (or small!) plans for their summertime?
