For some reason, though I’m a bit sleepy and spacey today, I also have tons of energy. I’m feeling really cheerful and all afternoon I’ve had the urge to run and shout.

What am I, a kid? πŸ™‚

This is why I love the history department. Look at the letter they’ve drafted explaining Commencement to us. A sample:

A reception for graduates and their guests will immediately follow the ceremony. Refreshments will be served, along with a processed derivative of the grape. The ceremony itself should end at around 12 p.m.; the precise moment of your departure will be determined by the rate at which you drink.
