There's a PDF on my hard drive at the moment. It's 356 pages long. It contains the complete reading copy of La Dissertation, with bibliography, glossary, appendices, figures, title page, the works. As soon as I finish my tea, I'm going down to the Music Department office to print the monster out.
It has to be done. I don't think my brain can squeeze any more dissertation out. And today is the due date. Everything looks good. I think La Dissertation has been written. There'll be a defense in two weeks, and more revisions before final submission, but
Oh wow I finally finished La Dissertation YAAAAAAAAAAAAY!
