PhD part 2: the other party

The best part about a PhD? Drinking one!

  • chilled champagne
  • 1 oz gin
  • 1/2 oz anisette
  • 1 oz lime juice
  • pomegranate seeds
(some pomegranate seeds will sink to the bottom, others will be pushed up by bubbles. Oooh, pretty!)

However, the robot (who now has arms and an antenna) prefers wine.

Hmmm, these pictures do not show that food was served at this party... My friends prepared a 5 course french dinner! We had fennel soup, salade nicoise, tarte a l'oignon (onion tart), fromages from Murray's and tarte a la myrtille (blueberry tart). By some miracle, there was an entire blueberry tart left in my fridge. I've been having blueberry tart for breakfast and after luch and dinner. It makes a good snack too. If only it didn't turn my teeth blue...

Next up: knitting after a PhD. It's not all it's cracked up to be.
