Doctor, Doctor

Now you can officially call me "Dr." No, not the good kind, the doctor of philosophy kind. Whatevs. 

Waiting for the actual awarding of degrees to start 

The award my dissertation received 

Getting ready to process through the closed down streets of New Haven
Lining up and getting ready to process

My helpmeet and I the day before at the awards ceremony for the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences
On my way to the stage to collect my award
Collecting my award
Collecting my award
I'm an award winner! That makes us both winners

Me clutching the actual degree

The ceremony itself
The ceremony itself - getting the degree

Wine time!

Wine time!
And more wine...

Congratulations! I love your blue polka dot dress, it is adorable and perfect for the occasion. And, more wine is always good! (okay, well maybe not ALWAYS...)
Hope you are having a wonderful day!

Wow, CE. I really wish you would apply yourself sometimes. Only a PhD from what is that school you call? Dale? Bale? Oh, Yale? Never heard of it. Did you at least win an award or something? Oh what? You did? You're joking? It didn't even come with a statue? Outrageous!!!!

Congratulations, missy. What an achievement! Surely the prettiest doctor in the crowd! :-)

Even though he's got a Ph.D., not M.D., my husband (all-too-often) says "Trust me. I'm a doctor." Not being the "good kind" hasn't held him back!

Unknown said...

Yay, I apologize for my delay but CONGRATS!!

Doctor & also Best-Dressed! Great combination. Glad to see a lady can be both intellectually serious and fashionably frivilous...
