I live.

I've been incredibly slack about updating lately, but I do still exist. Here's a brief taste of what's been going on:

1. I didn't get into grad school. Disappointing, but it's been a couple of weeks, so I'm pretty much over it. I'm going to get in touch to ask what I steps I should take to make my application more attractive next year. I'm already planning on auditing some classes in the department starting in the fall. In the mean time, it's back to the Job Hunt Of Doom.

2. Two excellent concerts on consecutive days; darwins_fox and I went to see Cowboy Junkies a couple of Thursdays ago, and I went to see Stars on my own the following night. Both of them were incredibly fun, and great shows. Margo Timmins' voice is still pretty much the sexiest on the planet, and Stars just lit the entire State on fire with their passion and energy and gorgeous indie rock love. I was amused to note that L and I were slightly on the younger side of the Cowboy Junkies demographic, but I'm pretty sure I was one of the ten oldest people in the Stars audience. I managed to get seated next to a couple who was probably about five years older than me, and a few seats down were a couple in their 50s/60s. It was a comforting island in the sea of Cornell/IC/IHS hipster kids.

3. Deviled eggs: delicious.
Deviled eggs + tuna: more delicious.
Deviled eggs + tuna + bacon: most delicious.

Yeah, okay, that's two goings-on plus an assertion, but I stand by all of it. Now maybe I'll get caught up on all of your posts.
