Ph-Dizzle from the U-C-Schnizzel-Chisel

Welp, this weekend was quite busy, but I am proud to say that I have successfully defended my dissertation, all 3 members of my committee have approved and signed the front cover of it, and I will be turning it in to the Grad Division tomorrow morning (it's due at 4:30pm). I spent all day battling the margins to get them to conform to University Standards, and a while making the last minute corrections my committee gave me, but as of about 60 minutes ago, I have the final copy printed and ready to turn in in the morning (after I fill out the requisite exit forms and red tape). I also managed to down about 4-5 shots worth of 14-year single malt scotch today which admittedly may have slowed down the whole final editing process a bit!

A picture from the party last night, during which I was still kind of too much in shock to process everything...



- Doctor Jones*

(*) I'm not sure when the official time is when I'm allowed to use that prefix, but most of the grads around here seem to agree it's when your committee signs your dissertation and shakes your hand, so by that reasoning, it is already in effect!) Now all I need to do is marry someone with the last name of "Mindbender", and I'll be all set to report to Cobra Command =)

Awesome! Congrats, Dr. Spoonless!

Will you share your thesis with us?

Sure, I'll post a link to it at some point. Actually, I put quite an Easter Egg in it that I hope you'll like... assuming I slip it past the grad division tomorrow.

Actually, I'm wondering now whether there will be some way of linking to an official electronic version--I've heard they scan them all in before putting them in the permanent physical archive. I guess I should probably just link to my local copy, as the scanned in version will probably not be publicly accessible.

Squeeeee!!!

**huge hugs**

I'm thrilled for you. But I can't help it-- you're still "Jeff" to me.

Congratulations, sweetie!

Well, the way I look at it is you can always add new titles, but you can't take away old ones :)

Yay!
I still haven't gotten around to changing my surname to "Strangelove" but I'm sure one day I will.

And yes, you do look in shock :-D

I am looking forward to reappearing in the social scene, having gone off the radar for the past couple months. :) See you around!
