Huge thanks to sweaterella and to everyone that helped for hosting a totally sweet dinner party tonight. There was extraordinarily tasty chicken parm and pasta and cake, and also the now-nearly-traditional 1kbwc.

During the day I got some decent paper-writing progress done, and finished off Donald Barthelme's novel "Paradise", which I enjoyed. It is about a 53-year-old architect who suddenly finds himself living in sin with three youngish women. I really love the way Barthelme writes dialogue. It's not naturalistic, but it isn't jarring, either.
