Adios Dave-mobile and Dave too it seems!

Following the demise of our pickup, the fate of the Dave-mobile was decided the other day. The ownership-change papers where signed yesterday, and the vehicle is once again insured and now resides in the garage rather than on that gravel patch off to the side of the house. I was a little worried about the health of my bank account at the beginning of the week, but it's looking somewhat more healthy news.

In other news: I was awaiting the mail today to see if a copy of a book that I ordered in early August would show up. Instead I received mail from someplace else.

I'd been speculating what to do come January the past few days, including thoughts of heading off to Europe for a few years (amidst other crazy schemes). Instead, it seems that I may be becoming an Albertan instead. My bank account was in lockdown mode before this, but it looks like I'll be tightening the restrictions further given the piles of money that grad students typically have lying around. Incidentally, Darren and Shena, if you're still debating a move to Alberta, I vote Calgary.


So, it looks like my last exam is on December 16, and it seems that I need to be in Calgary on January 3rd. Sounds like I'll be having a nice, crazy December.

Congratulations on getting accepted.

Technically, I need to wait a little bit longer before I'm fully accepted. The letter I received told me that "the Department has recommended to the Faculty of Graduate Studies that you be admitted to our MSc program". Then the faculty of graduate studies checks to make sure that you meet the minimum requirements for admission, and then sends you your formal letter of admission. I don't think that that will turn up any problems.
