Dr Laurel








Laurel graduates with her PhD in "Shakespeare’s Use of Nothing" this Saturday May 13 in Washington, DC. She graduates 10am [12 midnight Sunday in Sydney]. It has been a labour of love. But in the contest between Something and Nothing, it would appear that Something eventually won.

Then [together with Em-mma] we will be flying to Atlanta then to Albuquerque, New Mexico, next Friday. Laurel will be flying under the name Dr. Laurel Moffatt.

Tidy.

All you shy readers out there: I know who you are. Why not post your congratulations here on this site? Click on the 'comments' thing below. Register yourself with a name, or even anonymously, and post your congratulations. Why write a card, I say? I'll pass on the love to the Doctor.

Love, Justin.

PS I've included some random recent photos. I think that Em-mma took most of them.

Laurel
As far as we were concerned you were always Dr material (I'm not sure what that means but it's a compliment!) Well done, your kids are beautiful and your hubbie is a dude.

Jim said...

Firstly congratulations!

Secondly, were there any references to "Seinfeld" and how this may have furthered Shakespear's use of "Nothing"? Its a long shot I guess.

Congrats Laurel. Must be a great relief to have all that work completed and now be a Dr. Was cool to talk to you all the other day.

dr moffatt
you are an inspiration ... and so stylish. congratulations on your remarkable achievement.

I would like to say welcome to the ranks of doctors.
however, you are a real one and we are merely bachelor degrees posing as medics....

we are missing you all sorely and trying to figure out how we can come and introduce baby charlotte "the screamer" to NYC. i think she would fit in well there, as it is the city that never sleeps and she is the baby that never sleeps!
lots of love nat and josh x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x
