Travels, travails.

Ritchie told me yesterday that Cambridge, where he was an undergraduate, will give M.A.s to any members of his graduating class who return for this special M.A.-giving ceremony this spring. And to think that Penn and Princeton are worried about grade inflation...

We're thinking about taking a quick trip to New Orleans in April for a long long weekend if we can find friends who want to join us. As yet we haven't worked out the details, but it feels like a good time to go. New Orleans is one of my favorite places to travel -- I even considered taking a job there a couple of years ago -- and we haven't been back in a few years. So... who's going to go with us?

Maybe Gene has some family you could stay with in the Big Easy?? :)

Don't let it be from April 14-17, as there's a chance Mike and I will be in Seattle (if I get into a conference). But I might be up for that, as my best friend is in a doctoral program at Tulane and has been bugging me to visit for months...

my husband is in fact a recipient of this fake-y M.A. from Cambridge; according to him, it is sort of a right conferred upon you to get an extra degree just because it's sooooo special and challenging to get a bachelor's from there. so you get the extra bonus degree. 'cause damn it, *you* went to *cambridge*. he finds nothing odd about this. (my own alma mater confers upon you a smiley face sticker to add to your diploma. 'cause *you* went to the *univ of IL* ha!)

anyhoo, we're totally serious about N.O. also!
