Official spring break report for Friday, March 24

Quote for the day: The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands but in seeing with new eyes. --Marcel Proust

Sleep: 8.5 hours at night, 2.0 hour "nap" (wow!) (This compares favorably with the average 5.0 or so hours I’ve gotten nightly for the last 2 weeks.)

Weather: A neat mixture of rain and thunderclouds and patches of blue sky. Warm enough to wander around wearing a sweater, but no coat.

Fun: Watched some TV while doing absolutely nothing else: “What Not to Underwear.” Fun!

Chores: Trip to Costco for miscellaneous needs—TP, toothpaste, birdseed, etc. And, of course, can’t leave Costco without one of their cheap and fabulous rotisserie chickens.

Food Events:
Lunch with Valerie at Pho Van: charcoal pork and spring roll over vermicelli, Jasmine pearl tea, ginger-infused crème brulee.

Dinner with Bill at McGrath’s: crab won-ton appetizers, salad, mixed grill of halibut and shrimp, baked potato, veggies.

Dog: Pensive, thoughtful.

Thanks, Rebecca, and hey there, Spine! Done grading portfolios, or just taking a break?

Grades are due at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, so I'll aiming to get mine in early--around 4:45, I was thinking.
