Knowledge pursues me but I am faster.......

If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, then baffle them with bullshit.......

.......One day, we will look back on this, laugh nervously, and change the subject…

Only in our dreams are we free. The rest of the time we need wages.

Well done her. A first is so worth celebrating. Is she going to go on to do a Masters?

Helen says:

Wow, fantastic. What does she want to do next? Or is she too tired out to think about that?

13th Jun 2008, 13:53

MaggieD says:

Thanks peeps :)
She is seriously considering doing a Phd in some aspect of analytical chemistry (something to do with street drugs, but I am not sure what exactly) .......

swamprose says:

congratulations all round. I think parents also should get some kind of award when their offspring graduate. or at least new shoes.

maddie can come do street drug research here, anytime she wants.

MaggieD says:

Thanks SR, a new pair of shoes in a must as I don't actually possess a pair at the moment (only boots and trainers).

Taniwha, the studentship she is thinking of applying for is at Canterbury (she really likes it down there and wants to stay).

Fantastic news, although having now met both of her parents there was no doubt the genetics were there...
Street drugs sounds like a very worthy area and I love the cartoon too

OCD Sprocket says:

Forensic Science, that's fantastic. Now all she has to decide is whether she wants to go work at CSI Vegas, New York, or Miami!!!????

MaggieD says:

OJ :)
thanks Beth and JD
D, She gets her scientific brain from her dad :)
Sprocket, I think CSI Peckham would be more her style ;)

Spiderbaby says:

Wow! That's brilliant news. Very well done that lady :)
This certainly does call for a hat.

queserasara says:

Congrats Maggie & Dave & first born - that's wondeful news. Sprocket - I vote for Vegas as the pools are better!!

13th Jun 2008, 19:34

MaggieD says:

Thanks SB, I think it will be Dave (unravelled) who will be getting a hat, he has always hankered after a 'Terry Pratchett' I, however have been banned from hat and frock wearing .....

13th Jun 2008, 19:37

OCD Sprocket says:

MD - you can always borrow my stetson

QSS - my vote would be with Vegas too

13th Jun 2008, 19:52

queserasara says:

Ohh go for the stetson Maggie - then maybe the romper suit....

13th Jun 2008, 19:53

MaggieD says:

Thanks QSS, but isn't it Vernons that do the pools?

13th Jun 2008, 19:54

MaggieD says:

QSS, the romper suit haunts my dreams ...

13th Jun 2008, 20:07

MaggieD says:

... and Sprocket I have seriously considered your stetson, but have to reject it on grounds of colour and threat of disownership ....

13th Jun 2008, 20:14

Spiderbaby says:

Oh no! Is Dave going to have to do the frock as well then??? Someone has too! Not even a little hat?
