Please sing with me: Holiday! Celebrate!

This is the T-shirt I wore Wednesday, when we went out drinking beer after the oral examination

This is perhaps a bit over the top? :-)

So, the presentation and the oral examination went very very well. And I was extremely pleased with the grade I got for (on?) my thesis! My best friend quickly made the necklace you see on the photo, after she heard about my grade. She gave it to me when we were celebrating, and told me to wear it all evening. I asked my supervisor (who also went out with us) if I could wear the necklace the next day too. She said: "I think you should wear it ALL summer!"

My girlfriend was really pleased too. We had a bet going before I got the result. I thought I would get a B, she was pretty certain I would get an A. If I was right, she would have to buy a weekend trip to Copenhagen or London. If SHE was right, I would have to fork out.

I lost. But I feel like a winner, of course. An unemployed winner, unfortunately, but still a winner!:-)

HB! CONGRATULATIONS!!!! That's so amazing! You must be thrilled! I am jumping up and down in glee for you and it's confusing the fish.

I think you should totally wear that shirt all summer and then get a big "A" tattooed on your ass. Maybe in Copenhagen or London!

Way to go, HB! I think you are a winner!

Wear that "A" proudly. Particularly if it gets you trips from the groovy gf!

Thank you so much, Winter and greymatters!:-)

Hilde: Hei! Tusen takk! Og ja, er ikke T-skjorta kul? Kjøpte den på Top Shop i London (Oxford Circus), de har en etasje i kjelleren der en finner unge designere og stilige T-skjorter. Verdt et besøk! Dette er vel det nærmeste jeg kommer til moteblogg... :-)

That is sooooo great! Very impressive, too.

Does this mean we can expect more frequent blogging from you?

Bani, vesper and syd: Thank you!:-)
And yes, Syd, more frequent blogging is the plan. Though a lot of it will still be poetry! Because I like poetry:-)
