So.

Philip Pullman justified the existence of my dissertation today.

Alright, so not directly, but he justified it in principle )

I was already a fangirl to begin with, but this just clinches it. I'm just sad all of my copies of his books are three thousand miles away.

And, on an unrelated note, today's rehearsal of Oedipus yielded the best performances yet from the principals. Oedipus was genuinely scary! Which is precisely what I was looking for. The Chorus still needs lots of work -- maybe I should assign them a night to go out together for drinks so they can become a collective?
