I'm a PhD student and I pay full-time fees out of my own pocket. In return for this, one gets a supervisor and a desk. At least, one should. I've (briefly) lost my desk and (twice) lost a supervisor. Careless? Perhaps. To my knowledge, I still have no supervisor.

Yesterday, I was expected to attend my MPhil/PhD Transfer Viva. Everyone was there. Except me. No one thought to tell me.

At what point does this descend from farce into tragedy?

On a brighter note, I received a wonderful quote, "you wouldn't pass a first year viva, never mind the transfer".

Includes an interview with the First Couple.

If anyone else had an ending to September 11, 2001, as comedic as George W. Bush's evidently was, please feel free to share it here. We can't let the President have all the fun.
