Still waiting...

...to hear about the SSRC grant. Nnnnnnnnnnnnggggggghhh. They were supposed to notify people on April 2. It's not that I think I'll actually get the grant--just that I really need to make sure I haven't got it before I start making summer plans. In any case, I do know I have the grant to study Irish in Donegal this summer (more on that as I am able to make plans).

I can't believe they are still dragging their feet. This is getting beyond ridiculous. I'm still holding thumbs, though.

Dude. I can't believe that they still haven't let you know! That's beyond annoying. Good luck though...

(BTW - "holding thumbs" - is that like "crossing my fingers"? I'm trying to picture how that works.)

Hi Lauren,
I am constantly surprised at which idioms haven't traveled. Yes, holding thumbs is like crossing your fingers. I can show you how to do it sometime, if you like ;-)

Yeah, as far as I know, holding thumbs never made it to Ireland, though I could be wrong about that...Sophie, have you heard it?

In any case, I still haven't heard from the SSRC. Oh, well....
