So this morning the phone woke me up at 5:30 and it was a lady with a beautiful Swedish accent. Frank was already in the shower, but he got out and dripped all over the floor while she informed him that he and his thesis advisor David Gross, and a third physicist named David Politzer, just won this year’s Nobel Prize in Physics!

Awesome! I’m so pleased! Frank Wilczek rulez!

What a way to wake up! Congratulations to all of the family! 🙂

    Thanks so much, Julie! I’m still in between sleep and waking, and the phone keeps ringing nonstop, but once I get a half-hour I’ll blog some fun stuff.

    Thanks for the funny e-card, this means you!

    It’s been great getting email and phone calls from old friends.
