Here's a brief, somewhat accurate, script of why this is the best day ever:
Susan Moores: There's an envelope here for you Liz
Me: Really? What does it say?
Susuan Moores: It says that you've won the... Montgomery Burns Award... for outstanding acheivement... in the field of... excellence... yes.
Me: Don't I get a fancy awards ceremony and my picture on the wall at Thorneloe?
*Susan looks at Dr Andrews who nods
OK so maybe that's not exactly what happened... but the good news is that at least a small portion of my financial woe has been remedied with a Thorneloe University scholarship. Drinks on me!
