My aunt apparently got diagnosed with dementia with Lewy bodies and got moved into hospice care - she's apparently deteriorating rapidly. She's had mental problems for years and is only in her early 50s (if that, she's younger than my father). My grandmother died just last year and had Alzheimer's, so it makes you wonder about heritability. Hrm, aunts aren't covered in the bereavement leave policy at work.
Chess is going decently. I won a terrible game today at lunch. I severely messed up the opening, but the opponent flubbed the attack allowing me to equalize and then win. I played inaccurately at the beginning, he played inaccurately at the end, and what counts is that you're the second to last person to make a blunder. Seriously, I severely messed up the opening. There ought to have been a devestating attack in there somewhere.
Huh, 4:30 already? I guess I haven't caught up, mentally, to daylight savings yet. Still feels early.
I am in favor of nuclear power.
I'm working on a take-home test right now in stochastic processes. It isn't so bad, really. There's only one or two that are tricky, the rest are just matter-of-course. I just have to hammer out some details.
I got my 2010 bonus, but, as the wifing unit is thinking of going back to school to become a Montessori educator and we're not sure about some other financial things, we're spending a very small amount and saving the rest rather than spending a modest amount and saving the rest.
An old friend of mine is coming through town. I'm totally letting him crash on the couch! Woo.
