Just Stop Talking! (Updated)

Today, while returning a phone call to a professor at Lewis & Clark, it happened. I got the rambles. I just talked and talked on and on. My brain said, "Just stop talking! Now! End it! Say Goodbye!" And yet my mouth did not heed this advice.

And so, right now, somewhere in Portland, this message from yours truly is just waiting for this unsuspecting professor, its agonizing length taunting me from a thousand miles away.

Give me email anyday - Voicemail is apparently too much for me to handle.

Update: I sent the L&C professor a follow-up email with my questions - mostly because I didn't want to keep taking up his time with the phone tag. Mostly I asked about opportunities for students related to International Environmental Law, and also about some of the more unique programs L&C offers.

Anyway, I just received the most amazing email back! I was excited before but now I can't wait!

Gotcha! I'm not surprised -- the environmental program profs are marvellous!
