My sister has the cutest pup, which I finally got to see this weekend. Ball of energy. She's a little biter, too, but not in a way that hurts. (Yet.)
Paper is going well. I think after another revision, it'll be good enough to be called 'Draft' instead of 'Rough Draft'. In a way, writing an actual paper is more fun than doing all of the research before it - instead of grinding at a problem, I can focus entirely on perfecting the text. Which is the difficult and rewarding part.
Yesterday I went by train to another date. Sadly, someone jumped in front of a train before my train, so I got stuck for a while and had to cancel those plans. Grabbing lunch with her tommorow instead! I happen to have a conference tomorrow in the same city as hers. So far, I have had a whole bunch of conversations and dates (one or two each week), and there are two girls that I'm quite into. We'll see. :)
Also, I just today learned that nobody uses the krul outside of the Netherlands. I thought it was universal, but it totally isn't.
