I am tired. And sleepy. This has been one hell of a month. And the hell of it (good and bad) is not yet over. But I want to say: a) I already miss MP2 who flew out this morning and b) I survived the mall just now. I'm going to celebrate that last fact with a nap. Then I'll post some November photos and peregrinations. And after that, I'll grade some grad papers, and I'll put lights on the tree, and I'll make a flyer for a colleague's retirement party.
