So apparently a nap was more important than all the new student social events. We both slept through that, then the wife went to "Cosmic Bowling" to celebrate Galia's successful defense (so I guess she's "Dr. Galia" now). I had a bad feeling about it so didn't go, even though they were both being pains about trying to drag me there. Turns out to have been a good choice, too much loud bad dance music and smoking. I would have felt really disconnected and miserable.
Remind me to whine about my dancing thing sometime.
Our houseguest arrived very late, around 12:30am, after having to drive all the way from Detroit. Her flights got all screwed up so she just hopped into her car. She seems nice... a small woman in every way except that she's six feet tall. We chatted politely for a few minutes and then showed her her room since she has a very busy schedule today.
My dog, of course, was very impolite and jumped all over her. I think he still tries to get me chicks as if I were still single.
I am still psyched (no pun intended) about the dinner tonight.
And, I got a bonus this morning in that I got to chat a bit with two of my very best friends.
