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

Re: Fuck yes
I can't tell if he's happy or about to burst into tears. Kind of like my committee!
Tolja you'd knock em dead!
*hugs* Thanks! And your package arrived -- great timing!
Fantastic, congratulations! I hope and trust you will enjoying some high-quality drinks tonight :).
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.)
Congratulations! I'm impressed by your ability to adopt and succeed at an aggressive plan!
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. :)
Oh wait, I didn't see this thread before.
WHOOOOOOOO CONGRATS :D
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.)

Yaaay Congrats to you!

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

> that's totally the whole point
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.
