Big Ups to Madhu...

...who successfully defended his Ph.D. thesis at Rice today! 🙂

I believe that Madhu summed it up best in his e-mail to me: "Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, I am done. everything went more than better."

Hard to top that, folks. Plus, we got ourselves a new superlative phrase: "Everything went more than better." Define it however you like it to be defined, just be sure to use it. 😛

  

Cutting to the punchline...

So, there's this guy who runs a blog about Marmaduke. I bought one of his t-shirts the other day and as a kitschy thing, he was offering everyone a crappy drawing on a 3x5 card of whatever you want. It's surprisingly hard to think up something creative on the spot.

Anyway, since you probably won't see the card itself (or the "Marmaduke is an asshole" t-shirt), here's a link to the picture.
