And We’re Back!

Finally, I’ve managed to take care of the domain hack that kept things silent here for a couple weeks. It’s good to be back.

In the meantime, things have been frustrating in the real world and I’ve been back and forth and traveling and moving equipment at work and all such things. Currently trying to get my experiments running in a new location and I’ve been thwarted at nearly every turn.

Steph and I have plans to run away to NYC this weekend to see Jonathan Coulton in concert, and we are, of course, looking forward to this.

In other news, my little sister has graduated from high school! Many happy and belated congratulations are due to her for this accomplishment. I have a few pictures, just not with me now, unfortunately.

And, lastly, I’ve started Plurking (sort of like Twittering), so if anyone cares to join in, you now know where to find me.

Downs And Ups

I had an absolutely horrible day at work today–the sort that ended with me lying on the floor laughing the desperate and hopeless laugh of one who’s doing her best not to break into tears. This state was vastly improved when my sister, Stephanie, Joe, and I got some sushi at Miyake and then walked to Madeline’s for drinks and dessert. (Madeline’s Peach Mixed Berry Crisp is so, so amazing–as are pretty much all of the desserts there.) We followed it up with a trip to Steph’s place for some Smash Brothers Brawl and Mario Party 4 on her Wii. There’s nothing like socializing with friends to improve an awful day.

And, to top it all off, I got home to my midterm TA evaluations, which indicate that my students are pleased with me. They rated me between good and excellent on all counts! It’s good to know that someone thinks I’m doing my job well.

Tomorrow’s forecast: more unpleasantries followed by dressing up and dancing the night away at Grad Ball.
