so, I am supposed to hear BY April 1 about an NEH summer institute grant for which I applied , but I haven't heard. is this a joke? or is California time like Tybee (Georgia) time: approximate at best? there are four of us in my department who have applied. who will get it? who won't? I feel like one of my seniors waiting on college acceptances. only a lot older. and fatter. and probably less likely to succeed.
oh well, today IS April 1. I loved gmail's little amusement. auto-email!
