Suddenly a year doesn't seem such a long time after all

I went to a linguistics dept party last night for a friend of mine who has just submitted. (Submitted her thesis, that is, rather than generally submitting to linguistics, though that happens too.)

And we got to talking, as we have at each of these things I've been to, about who in the department is Next In Line To Hand In.

Turns out that now it's me.

Urp. Not for another year and three months, but it's still a scary thought.
