Win: The third chapter of La Dissertation is written in first draft! Yay! I went on kind of a feeding frenzy to do it -- if you look closely, you can see little bits of blood and knowledge sticking to my teeth -- and just chewed right through it. Now I've got a whole month and a bit to work on my Tave fellowship application. The Tave is a teaching fellowship, so I'm going to submit a course about Women in Sacred Music. Hildegard von Bingen will be there, of course, along with various gospel singers and of course my beloved women cantors. Who else might you want to learn about, if you were taking this course?
Lose: I will not come down with a cold. I will not come down with a cold. I will not come down with a cold . . .
