Sara has passed her thesis defense. She said the defense turned out to be a lot easier than she had thought it would - she even called it "fun." Frankly, I suspect that she was delirious when she said that. She is a very intelligent and well-educated woman, but when I called her this morning to see if she was ready for her defense, she was in a panic because she needed steak seasoning. I convinced her that that particular task could wait until tomorrow, unless she was planning to eat her committee, which would be a novel way of avoiding her defense, but probably couldn't be counted as "passing." She was pretty much a wreck all day. But, hey - all better now. They didn't ask her any questions she couldn't answer, and they didn't even demand any revisions, so she is well and truly finished.
