Thank you! <3 It didn't look quite like that picture, although I did basically cover the whole whiteboard.

Re: Fuck yes

Where did this picture come from? Before now I'd only seen the tiny icon version and assumed it was a 'shop job.

It's on Flickr; I'm afraid that's all I know.

Thank you! I had a butter tea at the Tibetan restaurant -- does that count? (I thought it was high-quality, but it's certainly not for everyone.)

Well, I flubbed some of the questions -- one in particular, from a paper that I thought I could get away with not reading again -- and I'm irritated because I didn't get to show off all the things I actually did know. Also, one of my committee members was like "Oh, there's a second page to this reading list?" ... It was classic. But in the end, it all worked out okay.

Thank you for your encouragement! I noticed your name in the acks of Turbak and Gifford. :)

Yeah, but when you get your Ph.D, there isn't going to be an asterisk on it saying "she answered some of the questions on her qual imperfectly" :-)

Yeah, and I'm here to tell you that that acknowledgment is not nearly detailed enough. I stood in a phone booth in Oxford for 45 minutes at 11:00 at night reading corrections to Lyn over the phone. And arguing with him about whether static types actually restricted what programmers could express. It was good times.

Thanks! Augh, for some reason we spent, like, an hour of the 2.5 hours talking about the Matthews/Findler multi-language embedding and I covered the whole board with red and blue marker and yet *still* didn't manage to talk about contracts. What the hell?

You are awesome, big big big congrats!

I gave a talk at a university recently in front of a blackboard like that. (It was not a math talk, but I felt like the funny writing added some legitimacy to what I said anyway.)

Congrats again!

Well, that's totally the whole /point/ of "funny writing," no?

Ok, you know what? That sounded totally different on my head than it looks on the screen. Please ignore me. And accept my contrite apologies if it came across as being snippy: it's not where I was trying to go at all.

Hey Lindsey,

This is really great news! Great work! I also finally decided to do something more with my LJ account. ;-)
