Personal: Dr. Michelle Dougherty; Rhodora Visits

Long night, lots of fun going out with the Drs. Dougherty after Michelle passed her dissertation defense this afternoon, but I accomplished squat with the rest of the night. I really do have the attention span of a gnat. And I lose much of tomorrow night to the real party for Michelle.

Lunch tomorrow with a girl I got to know a bit while teaching at St. Joe's, Rhodora Beaton, one of Mark Lang's M. Div. classmates from Notre Dame. She's been accepted to the Ph.D. program here, and is checking out the school. Looking forward to that. I was just asked to be her grad student lunch companion (a duty all the grad board shares) because I had been at ND, too. So I blinked when I saw the name. I swear, all the big Catholic schools in the States are networked, not just ND--so many of my friends here are friends with friends elsewhere: it all keeps interconnecting....

Then there's a lecture on current Christian/Jewish/Muslim relations by the head of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, one Archbishop Michael Fitzgerald. So that'll keep me from doing serious reading until after the party at Kari-Shane's. And I've still been too wired to sleep, so here I am, and so it goes.... Back to bed.
