I'm backdating this entry so it appears that I am keeping with my ordinary 1-post-a-day minimum, but I should inform you that the local time and date in Pittsburgh is January 6, 5:17am. I was supposed to be home at around 7:00pm the previous day. Con: snowstorm in Chicago, the cause of the ten freaking hour delay. Pro: Ran into Jack Lin, an old friend from undergrad I had mostly lost track of, at the Chicago airport, and his girlfriend Rebecca deHaven (who was planning on giving him a ride back home anyway) also gave me a ride, saving me from having to find a taxi at like 4am.
But I am back in pittsburgh, which is what really matters. Tomorrow there will be rejoicing, hot dogs, etc.
