Thanks for looking in the old Will Shannon Site O'Bitterness.

I was just cruising the net, looking for people from the past and ran across your site. Very nice.

Congrats on the De Paul graduation. I graduated as well, but there was little fanfare. My advisor has the annoying habit of leaving the country, so nothing got done in time for the official graduation. My degree was conferred on July 15.

As for Wisconsin, I was accepted into the Ph.D. program in History at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I figured, in for a penny, in for a pound. It is a good program and I am working with a professor whose works helped to get me interested in my field of study (early 19th century Irish social history).

It will be my first move away from home, not counting SJC. I am both thrilled and terrified. I just signed an apartment lease and the reality is starting to sink in. Well, I guess a change of scenery will do me good.

I hope all is well in the "Circle City." I know that, as you well understand, Chicagoans moving to Indiana can be a bit of a demotion, but hey, I'm moving to Wisconsin, so I have no room to talk.

Take care and good to talk to you.

And, if you took a second job, when would you watch the cable channels?

When I saw the title to this entry I thought that maybe you had set up a PayPal account for people to donate to your cable fund . . . hmmm . . . not a bad idea.

I always thought that Banana Republic was a lame name for a store, since it really refers to the government of small tropical islands run my cranky despots. Makes me think that all the apparel is made in sweat shops. Besides, it is really just an overpriced version of the freakin' Gap, which is another crumby name for a store.

But not as dumb as "The Limited." Honestly. Every time I see their sign, I think, "Well forget that. They can't possibly have any selection there."

I think "The Limited" earned its name by pricing items in such a way that you can only afford to buy a limited number of them at one time. Which is such a shame, because I heart their clothes.
