Same Old Blog, Spiffy New Subtitle

Yes, it's time to update OEinNY to note my newest "change in status."

The box on my little grad school to-do list next to "Pass Oral Exams" has been ticked off as of last Thursday.

Now things can get back to a semblance of normalcy around here. For example: I can start filing all of the file folders I accumulated during this process. I may need a bigger filing cabinet.

Please note the new Subtitle of the blog -- comments? Thoughts? Anything more poetic?

Also -- the best line of congratulations on my survival of last Thursday's exams came from my best friend's husband who noted in part:

We will now, of course, begin referring to you as "Master of Phil." Just exactly who Phil is, and how he's going to take this new role of servitude, I'm not sure.

May you rule justly over him.

Something more substantial tomorrow. For now, I'm just glad I already planned my nine AM class. Meaning: more time to be properly caffeinated before I show up to teach.

I was thinking of calling you on your subtitle soon.

Congratulations Master Hurley!

I think the subtitle is quite witty, and in its own way subtly poetic.

Good on you!

I rather approve of your subtitle. Though I think it should be in Old English.

Woo hoo! Congratulations! (As if there were ever any doubt you'd pass!)

I like the subtitle.
