Current and former SJC residents, I invite you to join me at the spring graduation reception today at the Fairmont Social Lounge at 5pm. You were supposed to RSVP, but I’m sure no one will notice if you slip in a few minutes after it has started.
There will be refreshments, alcoholic ones as well. A rumour also exists that they might be serving shrimp dumplings too.
In any case, be there as I transition gracefully from grad student to an unemployed bum with an advanced degree.
