To take a long and quiet walk home, to listen to the cars whispering through the distant slush, to shuffle along the sidewalk under no particular haste, is a very pleasant and calming thing.

The walk was from a birthday party over at Dalzell. It was fun. Listened to Sara-whose-last-name-I-don't-know talk at length about various things going on in the european sociopolitical scene, which was interesting. I had never talked much with her before; being as it was largely at D's, the conversation was usually very brief and had to do with asking about the football game currently on the tv.

Before that had a pretty good advisor meeting. I kept pounding away at the twelf code and eliminated some of the hackishness out of hackbind, in a way that I was quite surprised was possible. Not that my level of surprise is historically correlated with worthwhile achievement, but still.
