I do not claim to be an Astros “fan” but I do try to support my hometown team. I am sad we lost, but proud that we advanced farther than we ever have before. I watched the game at a nice venue downtown called Pub fiction which had great happy hour specials ($6 pitchers!) and good food.
Today has been a blur of preparing for classes, a meeting with graduate students who were unsure about research, a meeting with the boss lady, and a hastily eaten lunch. Geez, I just looked at the clock and it is barely past noon. I still have a desk shift to survive, so if you do not hear from me in a couple of days, send out a search party. I will be the pile of exhaustion stuffed behind the printer with a jam in “the bad place.”
