Hooray for PhD Octopus!

If you take a look at the lovely “sticker” on the right side of the screen (thanks Luce for figuring how to put that up there), you’ll see that PhD Octopus just won the History News Network’s 6th annual Cliopatria award for “Best New Blog” of 2010. Hooray! We’re really excited and honoured (Nemo and I with a “u,” Wiz and Luce without) to receive this award. We’d like to thank the History News Network at George Mason University for selecting us, and especially this year’s judges. We’d like to thank our professors and fellow doctoral students, for keeping us informed, engaged, inspired, and entertained. We’d also like to thank you, our readers, for reading and following and commenting. We hope to provide more fresh, fun, and interesting posts in the new year.

That’s probably the closest I’ll ever come to an award show acceptance speech.
