For just a few, startled moments I thought you'd made this up. And I thought, "What does that have to do with Isaac Watts?!"

(which is what I *think* your PhD is about??)

Now I have to waste more time finding more dinosaur comics...

Nice. I don't know why it matters, but it was ... nice. :)

Haha. I was gonna send you this but figured you'd probably seen it already!

yep. Cognitive semantics and Isaac Watts. My PhD title: Metaphors of Travel in English Spiritual Language

Ahhh, Cognitive Semantics. Sounds like fun, frighteningly.

Me, I'm doing Cognitive ... but leaving the Semantics out, although maybe I could consider it ... after all, semantics is about meaning, and meaning is what I'm wondering about when people make decisions (i.e., how they make a decision entails them recognizing some meaning). Alas, though, my stuff doesn't necessarily have anything to do with language, per se. Something to consider, though.

When do you all wrap up, here?
