Hail the conquering hero

Brandon is on his last week of school. I knew he was getting excited when he went out and bought two bottles of champagne for his Friday lab meeting -- normally he takes a bag of store-bought cookies. =)

Commencement (which no amount of wife-to-be nagging would convince him he should attend) is Saturday, and yesterday he went to an awards ceremony where he received an award for his outstanding work as a Teacher's Assistant!

*polite applause*

And, it came with a $600 check attached to it.

*wild racous cheering*

This is mildly ironic, as I'm sure that Brandon's LEAST favorite aspect of attending graduate school was his stint as a TA. However, this is a fairly high honor; according to rumor, it hasn't been given to anyone in the Biotechnology department in something like ten years.

I am proud of my boy. =D Even if he did call his students "sprogs" more often than he actually addressed them by name...

What would you like to be referred to as instead?

Maybe just Wendy would do? =)
