4. An extra month of dodging well meaning but frustrating questions about our timetable or whether we have any news.
3. Watching fellow bloggers start their cycles. Not that I’m not happy for them and excited and lucky to be able to learn from their experiences, but it’s hard to avoid
2. More time to worry and anticipate.
1. I’m terrible at waiting.

5. Time to get my papers written. At least in theory. Don’t ask how that’s going.
4. More time to come up with snappy retorts to people’s boneheaded comments and ridiculous assvice.
3. Gives me time to figure out the vibe at the new job before I start having unavoidable last minute scheduling problems. (My schedule is actually really flexible, but I have a lot of meetings, only some of which I can reschedule.)
2. Gives me time to contemplate switching to Typepad so I can use the “categories” feature.
