I should have mentioned that I had good stuff today, too:
* Went to lunch with another faculty member; he has East-Coast and Chicagoan roots. Cool guy, and we have lots in common. Also, dude, India Palace!
* I'm meeting a friend tonight for some tabletop gaming... er, I mean, to blow up some 80-ton 'Mechs!
* Tatsuko is happy and healthy.
* Sophia-Mousey is the healthiest rodent ever. And has a new wheel. On which she can still almost give herself a full spin 'round using only the momentum of her tiny, blurring feet.
* I have good friends.
Okay, I feel better now.
Hugs to y'all,
