thesis defense... literally

man, when they say "thesis defense," they really mean it. you have to defend that thesis with your life. those professors totally grilled him. ben defended his thesis on tuesday, september 18. he did such a fabulous job. he totally sounded like he knew what he was talking about. considering this crazy, physics stuff that he's been studying, he totally had to be faking it. just kidding. in all seriousness, he did a great job and i'm so proud of him for getting through it... and he passed. woohoo! now he just has to make some revisions and get it printed and we can finally move on with our lives. we still don't know when we are moving yet, but i'll keep you posted.

Good work, Ben! I know that my defense was pretty crazy, too, so congrats on being finished. (Of course, it's been almost a month already, and I'm still hammering out the formatting issues for the ETD submission...) I'm excited for you and your family!

Ben is the man! Congrats on being "done" and good luck with the move. Utah will be a little less bright.
