Office space

For the past few months, my department has been in temporary quarters while our floor was being renovated. We moved back in today, and it's pretty cool!

Hooray for Annabelle!

The University of Rochester recently had their Relay for Life. Some of Annabelle's friends offered to donate money for cancer research if she would buzz her hair, and she did it!

There's a really good writeup about it here.

Group photo

We posed for an official departmental photo today at work:

Then we posed for a goofy photo, but it's kind of hard to tell the difference:

Love my peeps!

Secret Squirrel sighting!

The Secret Squirrel was in our parking lot today at work:

I am easily amused.

IRL meetup with Jen and Ted

I finally got to meet another of my long-time Internet friends! Jen and I have been friends online since around 2000. She and her son Ted have been staying with me while they are visiting colleges. Here we are enjoying some nice, hot Russian tea:

Girls' weekend

Jenny and I had a great time this weekend exploring the city with 3 of her friends (now my friends, too!) from work. They were a little early for the full cherry blossom experience, but we had fun nonetheless.

Some photo highlights:

We did find SOME blossoms . . . near Starbucks!

Stopped in at the American History Museum so Jenny could take counting lessons from an expert (sorry so dark):

I finally got to visit the National Archive!

When it rains . . . it's in my dining room! We are still working out the kinks in the new house, and it turns out we need to find a plumber. Something has gone wrong in the upstairs hall bathtub:
