You deserve those beers and a few more for that huge accomplishment. Job very well done! Hope you don't mind a few dancing bananas to help to celebrate.

I know you're probably sleeping off last night's celebration, but Congrats!!!!

Was it a Master's or Doctoral Thesis?

I've gone through both a thesis defense and the licensing and ordination orals process (Which is like a thesis defense every 6 months for 4 years) so I know what you went through. You deserve to celebrate!!!

Like my snazzy new avatar? Get Sons of Zymurgy swag, here, and brew with the best.

I gotta tell ya, just between us girls, that Revvy is HOT. Very tall, gorgeous grey hair and a terrific smile. He's very good looking in person, with a charismatic personality... he drives like a ****ing maniac! - YooperBrew
