William haircut


 William got a haircut to celebrate the end of the term. Yesterday I have returned to Sock-Vile and replacing audio throughout. This is meticulous work that will take me a long time.

Time loosens up


 Grades are in. Taxes are done. William's last final was handed in yesterday. I even caught up on my email. Took time to play a record and paint.

Maricarmen defends

 


Congratulations Maricarmen Tay Lee Sanchez on successfully defending her MFA thesis this morning. Mike and I supervised and we are super pleased. Things went very well. The external, Dr. Elizabeth Miller asked many great questions and was very supportive and encouraging for Maricarmen's future research.

Spring and essays


 Spring in the front yard. William has one last paper to do for tomorrow morning. I thought it was almost done on the weekend (I didn't read it but it had enough words and it had an introduction and a conclusion and a title page, so what else is needed?). Anyway, looks like there are many more details that will keep William busy all day.

Disc camera


 Painted another disc camera. This is my third. I looked them up and discovered that there were at least 16 variations, due in part to the fact that a few other companies licensed out the format (why???!!!).

Talisman concludes


 We've been playing the Allan Dotson mod of Talisman since Christmas (about 6 sessions). Margaret finally won, but I think a few endgame issues came to light that may have been overlooked in the old days when the game either doesn't end or ends at 4am with everyone exhausted. Saving every detail of the game within Tabletop Simulator and playing online makes huge differences, many good but some bad.

April Wine


 Was in meeting with Mike and Maricarmen this morning. There was an ongoing conversation about putting personal items on you walls, things such as concert tickets. I mentioned my April Wine ticket stub from the first real rock concert I went to and Mike said I should tell Amber. Such a mysterious thing to tell me, or so I thought. Anyway, I listened to four April Wine LPs while painting today.
