@lagreene: I think it was Tuesday or Wednesday last week.
@Mike: Ah feck them anyway, another week of thumb-twiddling awaits us. Yeah it sounds like your proposal has particular relevance.
I was slightly worried about mine (on the metaphysics of Cormac McCarthy's fictional worlds, and in particular their relationship to his interest in chaos theory and complexity theory), because it doesn't have any particularly Irish hook. The fact that he's Irish-American doesn't mean much in this case. Someone advised me before that I should "Irish" up my proposal a bit, to increase my chances, but after a period of doubtful fretting I decided against it. It would have required me to completely compromise my original idea and I'm not interested in whoring myself to try and get funding. They'll either see the merits of my proposal or they won't.
Ah well, I guess we can try and put it from our minds again until the start of next week, when the nailbiting suspense will recommence...
Good luck everyone, I'm reliving the pain all over again reading these
