The weather has turned positively Icelandic. I need to get home so I have access to a car, to run down to Mervyns and pick up some warm clothes.

The Fleetwood Diner at Liberty and Ashley is open 24 hours. It seats about twelve at the tables, and five or six at the bar. The atmosphere is smoky. A cheeseburger and half-serving of fries comes out to USD 5.14, plus tip.

On Saturday evening, the Byers (John, a classmate, and Ellen, his wife) had a potluck dinner at their house for CCS students. The turnout was decent, all of the food was superb, and the setting was beautiful—their house is tastefully decorated and the red-black-white color scheme is classy. We spent most of the evening chatting, then as the talk wound down John brought out the mat for some DDR (Dance Dance Revolution). It's funner than it looks, honestly.
