I went AWOL for three weeks because I got notice that my viva was scheduled for 13th December. So I went yesterday and bugger me if I didn't pass! I got my PhD. It seems unreal to me and I feel a bit flat about it yet. I'm hoping for euphoria at some point. I think I deserve it!
I have minor corrections to do, and I am actually looking forward to working on them. So, normal service will be resumed here as of today. Carry on!
