Not going to go to the graduation. First, it's during a pandemic still. Second, it's the same day as the final for a class I'm teaching, and I could get somebody to cover for me, but I don't care about it that much. If I didn't have to travel 8 hours as well, I might consider it. Actually, maybe I should at least think about logistics: it's Dec 17th, my parents could come, I could go and stay with my parents (only a couple hours away from there and on the way back) for a few days for Christmas, then come back? I don't know if I'd want to be out a whole week, though. Even if I hung around $UNIVERSITY_TOWN for a couple days so I wouldn't spend too much time at $PARENTS, seems like a while to be out. During a pandemic. But I'd get to wear a funny hat.
anyway, my contract ends this spring, have to find something else. Will start looking after the semester ends. willing to relocate. let me know if anybody needs a statistician.
broke out the bottle of dom perignon 2000 that somebody gave me as a wedding present. it was very nice, though it had not been stored in ideal conditions in the interim. I really need to sort out just how high you have to spend to get the "good champagne" effect, because it was an entirely different world than the <$20 ones.
not that I'm drinking. Giving it up for health reasons apart from occasional celebrations. Not really missing it. This counts as a celebratory occasion. But, you know, I should figure out how much I need to splurge.
baseball is over.
other news: it's really nice outside, so i'm going for a run.
: I mean, there are a few little formalities to go - minor revisions, and then you have to have it typeset correctly for the college to accept it, and I need to do all this in like the next two weeks, but those are details, it's a done deal.
