I finally collected my doctorate (D.Phil.) from the University of Oxford on 29 November 2008 — my parents and an old friend from college were there to support me.  With the exception of the handful of animal rights activists protesting loudly outside the Sheldonian Theatre for part of the ceremony, it was a great success.  I managed to say “Do Fidem” in Latin despite some anxiety and to correctly bow multiple times to the proctors and the Vice Chancellor of the University.  Afterwards, we went to the Quod and gulped down mojitos to celebrate.
