My Transparent Language Word of the Day was

Spanish: fiesta
English: (a) party


Example Phrase Using Today's Word:

Spanish: MaƱana hay fiesta.
English: There is a party tomorrow.


So, that sentence wasn't quite as fitting. Today, there was a little party in my head from about 11:45 a.m. on. The constant partying is why I'm feeling pretty tired now.

Call Me Dr. Sprenkle

I did it! I passed my defense! Wow, that was a lot of work! I don't think I'll try to do that ever again.

Thank you, gentle readers, for your support through the process. The Sprenkliest may need to change after I become a professor, to keep up appearances. We'll play it by ear.

Countdown to Defense T - 25 hours

Tomorrow at 10 a.m. is my defense. I'm mostly feeling ready, but I'm still feeling nervous. I need to review my slides and bake cupcakes and muffins for tomorrow.

Until then, here's a bulldog eating a watermelon.

Brave Cat

I don't know if this is real. I'm not sure if I should worry more for the eagle or the cat.

Hooding Ceremony

I feel like Earl (from My Name is Earl) with my eyes closed in my picture from the Doctoral Hooding Ceremony.
