Congrats to the home buyers. What a cute place! (I buy a Prius for tenure, you guys buy a new house!!!) It's going to be a great party place. I love the deck and fountain off the den.
And many, many congrats to MFW, who has formally filed her most excellent thesis. (Now, if you would pleeeeez, please, puleez write a formatting supplement to the dept. handbook for the rest of our students. Or you can start a new blog, "a tip-a-day" on "how to get out of Dodge despite the bad thesis formatting info the office of grad studies posts on its own website.") That Comm Studies woman was the best entertainment I've had all day. Not.
