OMGOMGOMG! Congrats Congrats Congrats! For some reason this makes me feel a bit better about my own PhD I'm starting next week. If one knitter can do it, so can I :)

I have some Growers in the fridge; it's not champagne, but it's fizzy and yellow. As soon as I get back from my 1:30 meeting, I will drink to you! Congratulations again!

Wonderful! I am so very, very happy for you!

Now go think about nothing at all for a few hours and bask in the title :) When a friend of mine got her degree she insisted that her husband call her "Dr. Honey."

Congratulations!

Well done :)

I remember when my dad completed his PhD - we had chocolate to celebrate (A huge deal in our family where both parents were students and there was no money for extras)

Enjoy your celebrations!
