That's how long I've been sick. Or is it ten? I think I'm on the way to wellness, but that's what I thought last Thursday, and Saturday I was so ill I couldn't hold my head up, much less think about working on my dissertation. The first chapter of which I have NINE DAYS to write. I present it to a roundtable of my fellow Russianists next Friday.
I notice that I was spammed, in Russian, by an anonymous commenter on my last post.
