The Doctor is In

I apologize in advance that not only will this probably be the shortest post I have ever written, but the first one to not explicitly concern food. This blog, however, just happens to be the fastest way to get news to my friends, family and anyone else who might be interested so I'll hijack it just this once. The important piece of news I have just happens to be that today I successfully defended my PhD thesis and - get ready for the good part - I AM NOW A DOCTOR!! Can you believe it? I can't quite myself yet, so I'll forgive you if you can't. Probably tomorrow it will seem a lot less magical since I don't know what exactly this title will be good for in this long, twisted path of my life, but at the moment it seems like a minor miracle that the thing I have slaved over, cursed about and nearly thrown myself out of windows for during the last five years is now finished. And call me crazy, but I'm even a little bit sad (though I've had the better part of two bottles of wine in celebration tonight so that may have something to do with it.) At any rate, please accept my apologies for any unanswered emails and general neglect I have been responsible for over the last few weeks/months - hopefully things will soon be back to normal. Whatever that may be... it's been a long time since I had the chance to find out.

As long as I have your attention, though, I might as well mention that the 2006 Food Blog Awards are now accepting nominations over at Well Fed. You have only until midnight EST tomorrow (Dec 15) to get yourself over there and put in a shout in for your favorite sites. Of course I wouldn't even presume to know what those are, but, well... one can always hope, can't one? :)

p.s. Have you seen how much we have raised already? $15,000 and it's only been four days!!!
