The veggies I had for lunch were wearing off. I’d polished off the goat cheese Dave left me in the fridge.
I’d spent two hours transcribing interviews — and that puts a real strain on the back! All told, I put in about five hours transcribing today. (I have so much more of it ahead of me this year. Manually transferring voice recordings into word files is excruciating — but it’s a necessary evil of qualitative research.)
Feeling wilted, I decided to treat myself to some veggie nut loaf at Mulligan’s Grocer, a restaurant I’ve mentioned before. Yum! This is one of Dave’s favorite meals in Dublin. It perked me right up!
Returning home, I conquered the interview tape by 10:30 PM and found reason to celebrate when I got some good news from Google Alerts. William and Mary just published a story about the class I taught this summer. Check it out!
