Grade from databases came in.

Not only did I pass, but I actually got a B+, due to getting a 95 on the final. Woo! I'm not sure what made the second half of the course material feel so much easier. I certainly paid at least a little more attention during the first half, studied somewhat longer, and got yet >20 points less on the midterm than on the final. Weird.

In other news, noticed that my .project was set to "functor.org" which is quite defunct. (I now also feel compelled to consider the meaning, if any, of "defunked") So I changed it so it says "project: retract", har har.

Empty house: norm left for a party, adam's not around. It's dark because the sun set and nobody's bothered to turn on the lights yet.

Futzed more with the paper.

Been in a pretty good blues groove lately. Got the Blue Monk, got my favorite triplet-swing bass line in A minor, got the standard walking-up-and-down thing in C, got Blue February, and a new Muddy-Watersish thing I've been experimenting with.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: I turned on a light. It is less dark now. The feeling of creeping loneliness not really subsiding, though. My latest crazy friend acquisition plan (parenthesize that any way you wish) seems to be failing, sadly.

Whup! Maybe there's a viable JM trip in the works. That'd be cool.
