Cake and champagne

I don't know if there's anything better in life than celebrating graduation and a great quarter in D.C. with cake and champagne. We're older students, after all, so this is how we roll, or whatever.

Here's a dino that Sarah Baicker made to represent a Medill student: carrying our crappy, school-mandated huge-ass Lenovo laptop and nursing a cocktail. It appears with a graduation cap and my cocktail, the champagne. How fitting.

We also had these fabulous cakes decorated by our multi-talented office manager Salome. I partook in the chocolate cake and it was so delicious -- there not only was semi-chocolate flakes and chocolate icing on the outside, but there were layers of ganache between the cake. Just imagine that one for a second.

Oh, the memories. I'll miss the Washington news room.

My wife finished her first semester of grad school yesterday--we celebrated with rice krispie treats and (really sweet) red wine :) Glad to see there's a trend.

Congrats on graduating--my wife's got another year or so for her masters, then 4 more after than for a PhD.
