And, it's been busy.
-I gave a talk this past weekend at the Fairmont Copley which went very well, thankfully. There were many attendees (for the whole conference, not just my one teeny, tiny talk). I saw lots of my former fellows and I had lunch with some of the participants at a place called the Cactus/Cottonwood club or something like that. I can't remember the name exactly, but I did get a funny little birthday surprise of chocolate and vanilla mousse served in a margarita glass with a candle stuck in it, all lit up, because I gave my talk on my birthday and made sure everyone knew about it. Sometime during the past week a resident asked me how many candles there should be on my birthday cake and I said, "duh, you are supposed to say: I could never fit twenty five candles on your cake....."
-I bought a new couch. It is white. I never use it.
-My mother and I moved my tv onto a new table I bought, but we messed up all the wires when we moved it and now it's all unplugged and sitting on the floor. I suspect I will have an extremely productive week.
-I am going to work out with my trainer today, after a week off. I give you a pre-emptive, 'ouch, crunches hurt.'
-I have some lovely flowers sitting on my desk at work that a bunch of people got me for my birthday. There are big bright yellow sunflowers in the mix - cheery, happy, and friendly. Thanks, work-friends! Thanks, thanks, thanks!
-And, that's about it for the update. More to follow.
