And that very nerdgasm is why I decided to wait to study it in 2010. I can see myself in Vienna, opting to sit in a hotel room to read Nicomachean Ethics for the third time (the second time I read it, it was for fun - no jokes). I am SO looking forward to this. I haven't been this excited to study anything in a long damn time. And so as much as I want to do this RIGHT FREAKING NOW I'm going to wait until I can thoroughly enjoy it. (Watch me start the readings now anyway ;))
I'm proud of me right now. Feel free to join in ;)
