Graduation Day (Updated*)

You're all invited to join me watching Prowesslessnesslessness graduate from Law School webcast live tomorrow, Saturday, May 14, at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time (that's 6 a.m. on the West Coast and 4 p.m. in Israel). If the technology works, that is.

*Well he may or may not have been present. I saw and heard the requisite bagpipers, and parts of the speeches of the Dean, the President, and the Guest Speaker (a judge), but Quicktime got very twitchy on my computer and kept rebuffering itself two or three times, and then telling me it had lost its connection to the server, requiring me to re-open Quicktime every 1 or 2 minutes. I was doing this during the minute when they may or may not have called Prowesslessnesslessness up to receive his fake diploma. His diploma would be fake because he has two more courses to finish by July, thanks to his "paternity leave" during the Fall Semester, to welcome The Little Bear. But this being a Florida school, they mercifully don't require the summer graduates to parade in their gowns when the temperature and humidity are both in the 90's. And I can't call him because he and Pippi Bluestocking and The Little Bear are all on an airplane now, going to visit friends and relations in the wilds of Southern California. Grrrr.

I will not be around but will be thinking of you.

[Thank you so much, D, so so much. I so badly want it to help her.]

Well, congratulations--whether or not it was on tv, he's darn close!
