March is almost here and the theses have begun their looming. Blythe Sheldon forwarded us the following email from an anonymous anthopology student. While the fetishization of childhood books is never a great idea, they’ve still got a clever idea.

in other news, i’m naming my thesis. so that my away messages will sound better: “in the stacks with Matilda”, or “out all night with Matilda” etc. I’m leaning toward Matilda, in honor of Dahl and his Matilda (lovely book which still makes me smile everytime i read it) — but am open to suggestions on what I should name it.

Oh, and twin/sibling names are better since I have another paper/thesis. But no references to the olsens please.
