This is the thread in which you all congratulate sugar spun (a.k.a. RIG). She got her fucking doctorate today. CONFIRMED.


You would all approve of how we celebrated. We're now off to the Hofbräu to meet up with the English-speaking expats who have been informed they must each address her at least once as Frau Doktor Sugar Spun. Once she's well pissed we're back to my place to celebrate some more.

Awesome.

Good things come to those who wait.

And I'm having some trouble imagining what kind of pronunciation goes with Sugar Spun following the Frau Doktor bit.

It's a special occasion. by sugar spun (2.00 / 0) #11 Tue Oct 21, 2008 at 01:44:24 PM EST
I've been allowing people to use my real name.

It still sounds weird in German, but the whole Frau Doktor bit mitigates.

I've been complaining about it since I moved here by sugar spun (4.00 / 1) #20 Tue Oct 21, 2008 at 10:07:52 PM EST
Strangely, now it's official and I get to call myself Frau Doktor, it no longer offends me in any way.

Apparently I'm very shallow indeed. I'm ok with that.

Should have posted this /after/ the drinking, I think.

It's after the drinking now. by sugar spun (2.00 / 0) #12 Tue Oct 21, 2008 at 01:47:11 PM EST
I have satiated my disgusting cheeseburger fetish (I'm a sober vegetarian and a drunken carnivore). And I'm still Frau Doktor, and would like to thank you and everyone else before I take BD off for further celebrations of the kind he will think twice before telling you about.

11:47pm BST and you're after drinking? by Dr H0ffm4n (4.00 / 2) #13 Tue Oct 21, 2008 at 02:04:38 PM EST

Drunken meat must be kebab. Thems the rules!
You know in Germany, they stack academic titles, so if you get another one, you can be Frau Doktor Doktor Sugar Spun<g>.

a Professor.

Frau Professor Doktor. That would make me very happy indeed.

You play the bagpipes? by Breaker (2.00 / 0) #25 Wed Oct 22, 2008 at 01:16:03 AM EST
An honourable person is someone who can play the bagpipes but refrains from doing so in public.

Congrats on the new addition, where are the cigars by marvin (2.00 / 0) #18 Tue Oct 21, 2008 at 04:26:35 PM EST
Oh. I see the second sentence claims it is for something else.Thought you'd knocked her up already or something,

Glückwünsche, Frau Doktor.

Vielen Dank. by sugar spun (2.00 / 0) #21 Tue Oct 21, 2008 at 10:08:59 PM EST
Please don't joke about the other.

Where have you been lately? by marvin (2.00 / 0) #27 Wed Oct 22, 2008 at 04:58:05 AM EST
There has been a poll on the topic already. There are surely topics that are not suitable for joking about, distasteful, or otherwise off limits, but the occupancy status of your uterus is definitely on the table.

Well, shit by sugar spun (2.00 / 0) #30 Wed Oct 22, 2008 at 07:26:30 AM EST

I've finished the PhD and no longer have an excuse.

I'm hoping my uterus stays vacant long enough for this hypothetical kid to have a birthday that doesn't fall in the summer.

BadPuppy wouldn't be so bad, I suppose, so long as he takes his sweet time in turning up.

Thank you everyone by sugar spun (2.00 / 0) #22 Tue Oct 21, 2008 at 10:10:13 PM EST
for good wishes and congratulations and for being welcoming.


You deserve the congrats by Phage (2.00 / 0) #24 Tue Oct 21, 2008 at 10:40:56 PM EST
And welcoming ? How else would you expect us to react ? That's why I like this site so much.
