I'm always a little surprised how well my parents function without any kids in the house. It's nice and unexpected.
In the afternoon, I went to the office and did a little bit of work. I finally got around to circulating a pre-publication manuscript; so I will have comments to deal with over the next couple of weeks. Then a poster to make for the conference in November.
I really need to decide what I'm doing next quarter in terms of classes and projects. So far, there a couple of classes that might be worthwhile. I'd like to maybe take something non-public health just for fun. Alas, there is no Icelandic.
Tonight was Kate's birthday. She had a nice little party at her apartment in Ballard; so I missed Dante's.1 I didn't realize that I knew her roommate until tonight. A guy brought a black lab puppy to the party. I'm totally ready to have a dog, but that seems really unlikely especially since I have no desire to settle for a "small dog."
(1) Actually, people are probably still there, but I'm not really motivated to go right now.
