Very interesting news about oxytocin today.

Christopher graduates this morning, so I am going in to work late, woohoo. A couple of years ago, the Equestrian Center double-booked our high school's graduation day and didn't let the school know until two weeks prior to the event. It's such a big class that it's hard to find a place to fit everyone--Jericho City of Praise volunteered their church and saved the day. People were complaining that a religious building wasn't an appropriate site for a public school graduation, but once we got there the grumbling ceased. For one thing, it is so huge that invitations are no longer a precious commodity--you don't have to decide which two of your family members you love best and so forth. The seats are comfy. The sound system is great. There's a jumbotron! So it's being held there again this year, I'm happy to say. Graduation ceremonies are not my thing, so I'm bringing Victoria. She can amuse me during the dull parts.

Thanks!
I guess the high school part is done for good now. I heard his name called, I saw the principal hand him a diploma--and at least 400 people had video recorders running at the time. I don't think they can take it back.

Re: Thanks!
At my friend's high school, they handed out your dimploma and when you opened the case you would find out whether or not you had graduated - if you didn't pass your classes, your diploma was not signed.

I think the ink was still drying on my l'il brother's when he got it...

Gah! I'm so old. I remember eating lunch with you and Christopher at UM when he was.... 8? 10? Where the Food Co-op moved to when it had to leave the basement but before the new addition was built. Please congratulate him for me.

You're not that old...
I am so old that I don't remember that lunch, or the temporary Food Co-op location, or that Christopher was ever 8 or 10 (now he is both). I will certainly relay your congratulations to our, um, scholar.

Congrats to you all.

I graduated in my high school auditorium. It wsa not fun, as I recall - boiling hot and awful. So, a nice space to hold commencement (I still wonder why they call it commencement when it's an ending, but that's just me) with no invitation restrictions sounds good to me.
