Today I had my graduation ceremony, BA Hons in Illustration. I got up the earliest I have in ages, dressed up to the nines (a smart shirt, and a skirt, and 2 inch heels no less! What is the world coming to) and, looking like a rather professional young lady, if I may say so, trudged up to the hall to pick up my tickets and academic gown. No mortarboard though, although we did get one for the official photo, was the only thing that puzzled us. Why no hat? What do you throw if you don't have a hat? We made up for it by whooping far louder than was really appropriate for the occasion!
*If, for some bizarre reason, you want to watch that ceremony in full, it will be available here for two of weeks following this post. I make my brief appearance around 32 mins in, and Christopher Frayling's spot starts at 43 mins, beginning with him being presented for Doctor of Letters.
