Called madmadammim while I was on the bus. She's still stranded in bumblefuck, missouri, but I was happy to find out that my haphazard guessing at what book-on-CD to gift turned out to be successful, and she enjoyed it. If only I could remember the author or title. Oh well.
Now to quickly toss together some slides. I do enjoy having random piles of old LaTeX to cannibalize.
