    Zenith is a beautiful-ugly word. Dont get all icarian on us. If achievement is in grasp, then context requires redefinition.

    Congratulations!!!!

    As for your future - you should drink heavily, isolate as much as possible and for added authenticity, dress in period clothing until the day you die. If you want to go all dramatic - be sure to never dust, keep the drapes drawn at ALL times and perhaps have a huge elaborate wedding cake rotting on a perfectly set dining table.

    Good luck breathing the rarified air at your dizzying heights. I envy you.

    True story.

    In my American Poetry class sophmore year, my professor was droning on and on about Sylvia Plath during lecture. When he reached the part about how she died, a solitary female gasp broke the quiet of the room. This was immediatley followed by, "Oh My God! She baked her head?!?!".

    Oh, and congrats.

    Oh wow. Muscles and brains! A lethal combo!

    That paragraph alone was witty, entertaining and well-written!

    Maybe YOU should write also....or at least, start a blog (if you haven't already.)
