One of the things I like best about being done with my thesis is that we no longer decide what to make for dinner based on how rapidly it can be cooked and consumed. ("How about rice?" "Rice takes thirty minutes." "Cereal it is.") Today we totally picked up parsnips, couscous, and tomatoes and got rid of our leftover potatoes, carrots, onions, yellow bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, and broccoli in the BBC's five-a-day tagine. Also, I can cut hair. This has been a very educational night.
