Well, this is my reading week, so I've been relaxing this Monday morning. Ned came over and had breakfast with us. I am getting excited for England. We're staying in a hostel in London for three nights and then a "guest house" in Oxford for two nights. Rachel, Sherry, Naomi and I are going. We'll spend about two days in London, one in Canterbury and Dover, one in Oxford, and one either in Stratford upon Avon or at Stonehenge and Bath. We're just going to go with the flow and see what we feel like.
I'm still not sure about my thesis. I'm thinking of something about the concept of story - how traditional story was taken out of modernist literature and how now there is a return to it.
I'm glad you liked Mike's letter. I don't know what it said, but I think he was worried that you guys would think he was a dumb freak. But it seems to all have worked out fine.
Well, I hope you have a good day!
