at 4 a.m.

While it isn't official yet, so let's not get all excited and shit...

I was "recommended by Department" for the PhD program at McGill.

So here I am, having a panic attack at 4 a.m. - cause now the game is on. For real.


and Thanks - yesterday was my birthday. I'm 36. Having a panic attack at 4 a.m.

Jeebus.

30 Baleful Regards:

Dawn, congrats!! I can't say I'm surprised, because You Rock, in so many ways.

And hey, I'm 36 too. It's a pretty good age.

Jaelithe said...

Awesome! I wish you the further awesomeness of officiality.

And Happy Belated Birthday!

P.S. Guess what I'm showing my tatas off in today?

mama_tulip said...

Sah-weet!! Congrats, Dawn.

And Happy Birthday. Have a good one. :)

MrsFortune said...

Happy birthday Dawn!!! I regret that my son won't share his b-day with you, but ... um ... do we have to start calling you Dr. Dawn? I kinda like that, actually.

Fraulein N said...

Yay, congrats! And Happy Belated Birthday!

Mommy off the Record said...

Congratulations! What will the PhD be in? Sorry for the dumb question, I'm one of your newer visitors...

Bobita said...

EXCELLENT NEWS! You'll be PhD-ing in no time flat!

Loved (LOVED) your posts about the vacation to Uber-Mecca...I can't wait to read more!!

How many Mojitos will you be gulping...in celebration of your birthday? Might I suggest...thirty-six?

Happy Birthday!!!

madge said...

Even Dr. Dawn, mistress of evil mecca mixology, can't handle 36 mojitos...I hope.

Congratulations! That is amazing and worthy of a panic attack or three.

madge said...

Oh, and, happy birthday my fellow Taurus.

TB said...

Happy 36. I'm right behind you. And congratulations, I for one had no doubt.

wordgirl said...

Don't panic! I'm older than you and no one's talking PhD. for me. Ever.
Maybe I'm the one who should be panicked.

E. said...

Congrats! McGill - that's excellent! Good luck. And happy birthday!

jen said...

But like I tell all my smartypants friends, I don't care if you are smarter than me, i, no me, no wait, I-- I am not calling you "doctor". you read me? I mean, I?

jess said...

Too late! I'm excited!

Contrary said...

Consider this a "Happy Birthday!" and a You go, girl!' all rolled into one sincere yet strangely cheesy comment.

Good job!

Elizabeth said...

{writing Dawn's birthday in calendar so as to know ahead of time next year and not feel so lame} Happy Birthday! 36? Bah. You're a young 'un :) Congratulations too. Jen's comment was hilarious.

Li said...

Smart Taureans are so hot! Congrats on McGill! We will be virtually neighbours (as apposed to virtual)...can't say enough about Montreal...love, love, love it!

mothergoosemouse said...

I am so very happy for you! Congrats and best wishes and many, many more. No panicking - you deserve all this wonderfulness, and so much more.

Diana said...

Mignon said...

Happy birthday and Congrats! Now, after MouseLand, the roller coaster ride REALLY starts.

Rock on, Dawn! This is such great news.

Dawn, you've been recommended for acceptance into a doctoral program at McGill University. What are you going to do now?

Well, you've already gone to Disneyworld-- On to conquer the Canadians, with their beady eyes and their flapping heads!

Good Luck! Vlad will be so proud...

roo said...

Oh, and Happy Birthday! As Alice's husband would say, now you're "Doubly Legal."

And you're showing the world how a Taurus woman gets it done.

Lisa said...

Happy Belated Birthday. I hope Vlad viled and slayed a few virgins in your honor. :-)

OH and I'm going to send you a special "birthday crackpipe" as a gift. teehee
