Sorry for not posting much this week.  After goofing off with my new pda phone, I had to get to work on writing up my first PhD essay assignment.  It was nothing significant–just a 6000 word comparison of Deissmann, Wrede, and Schweitzer–but it always seems to take more time than you expect.  It was profitable because while reading through Schweitzer again, some of my earlier questions were answered. 

We also just finished having dinner with a couple from Dallas who are looking into coming to Durham and another couple of UK schools.  It’s nice to have met people who are where we were this time last year and hopefully offer them a little help.
