I think I must've seemed a little glum or standoffish today, which I attribute to having a sore throat and generally feeling sick (that stomach bug from the flight home is still haunting me- I was seriously considering not going this morning). But I enjoyed today, not the least because the academic robes were cool (except for the silly trencher....hope to swap that for a doctor's cap in the distant future) and that I celebrated it with my friends and my family. Judi was an impeccable guest, who ran about looking for my father in her towering heels (when I really should've been doing that). Not to mention, she bought my OCD, which I plan on examining thoroughly later.
More Italy photos forthcoming! And it seems that my postcards are arriving, so obviously the Fates are favouring me at the moment.
