When I finished my dissertation defense, my committe, individually, addressed me as Doctor, shook my hand, and took me out to lunch. I was touched and impressed.

Back a year later, talking with one of my grad school colleagues, he made the comment, "Well, I see that getting the PhD didn't turn you into a butterfly. I guess it turns the world into a butterfly."

Sorry, I neglected to offer congratulations. I hope you will, at an appropriate time, become like me, an Emeritus Professor. Life is good!

Whatever you do, don't get a postdoc. It's a bottomless pit of despair!

Or maybe that's just me. Anyway, welcome to the club.

Yes, many congratulations.

When he became Lord George Byron at the age of 11 or so, the budding poet told his mother that it was strange but he didn't feel any different. It's like that.

Congrats! Now you get to rela..err, nevermind.

I hear the Cabal is sending men over to initiate into the Higher Mysteries. And give the free toaster. They are out of coffee cups.

Congrats on a job well done, or rather on a job that will need to be well done in your future. Ah, congrats to both.
