Well, I just won a fellowship :)
I found out earlier today that my MBA is going to be completely financed by a prominent bank along with a yearly stipend for expenses. With this comes the understanding that they get first crack at hiring me when I'm finished (Not going to argue that). Yes, I'm thrilled, yes, this is what I want, and, yes, I celebrated via a large number of chicken wings (Hey, I live in Upstate NY--it's what we do.).

2. Congratulations!
My sister went to grad school on a fellowship too.

You must be very proud (and rightfully so)!

7. Oh yes, I'm thrilled
As is my wife. I've taught for the last 6 years and this was the final step in deciding whether this was the appropraite career change. The other winners of this fellowship include students from Harvard, Wharton, and the University of Rochester--so yes, I think I've made an appropriate choice. :)

8. Tonight was a good Wings night
Legs rather--local place has every Wednesday night 50 cent chicken legs. They're made just like normal chicken wings but are much larger drum sticks.

I love Wednesday nights, heh.
