Kirsty got in the first comment, so I think she gets first dibs. But there's plenty of, um, skin to share.

That picture is something like 20 years old now. He played such a good solider in that movie. I've seen it once. I'm afraid to play it again for fear that the VHS tape will shatter. He plays blind well -- he plays handsome even better...

*cough cough* More like 25 years old. I was in grad school when it aired. I'm slowly getting caps from it, but my VHS is copy-protected, and I have to fight for every frame.

Some frames are particularly worth fighting for . . .

Please do keep fighting... *g*

Grad school? No wonder you're so articulate. I don't think I could ever get that far in school -- well, unless it was a course in Mac...

Yes, I spent four years in graduate school pursuing a MFA in theatre, then took a leave of absence and never returned to complete the degree. I have what's known as an ABT -- All But Thesis. I completed everything except the several hundred pages of writing that would have given me the degree. My alleged Academic Advisor hadn't done any real advising (in four years!!!), and I was almost as far away from getting my thesis written as I had been when I started.

So I took a break. The degree was supposed to make me employable, and I figured I'd come back and finish when I ended up adrift between jobs. Without the degree, I wouldn't be able to get constant work in my field. Supposedly.

More than a decade of pretty much constant employment later, I made a bonfire and burned the unfinished draft thesis and supporting materials. (wheee!!) I did go back to school a couple of years later -- at a very good local community college -- got a couple of certificates in a completely different field, and have continued to be pretty much continuously and comfortably employed since then.

Mind you, the education was invaluable, and still is, even though the degree proved to be something I could live without. Both the book-larning and the associated experience (in a grad school theatre programme, you do things as well as study them) gave me the skills to work and go on working. WHen I burned out on theatre as a career, I went back to school and found I could still learn, and that was good too.

Incidentally, I wouldn't sell yourself short either. Someone as good as research and writing as you are would be perfectly able to stay afloat in any academic environment, as long as you genuinely wanted the goal you were working for.
