- It is a beautiful day outside but I'm at my desk working. Used up most of my vacation on OSD.
- Can't get "real" Volvo windshield washer fluid (the kind that came with the car) in the US. There is something about the smell.

Raves:
- Volvo dealer service. 7500 Mile service yesterday, no-headache Sensus 3.0 upgrade, and I even got a rebate form for the oil change (synth upgrade).
- Mount for FTM-350 head and Garmin GPS installed. A lot better than having those bouncing around in a cup holder. Pictures added to "what did you do..." thread (I think).
- Saturday York meet, wife wants to go and then visit pretzel factory afterward

Listening to:
- Nothing at the moment, hard to do when bouncing between conference calls.

Worked almost 100 hours since Monday, brain is in 'Limp Mode'. I seriously cant do simple math right now.
Advisor has been frustrating to say the least....other committee member asked how the week of advisor torture has been.
Utah still only sells 3.2% beer.

Raves:
Got final acceptance for my paper to the Journal of Hydrometeorology (my first peer-reviewed paper; life-long goal of mine)
Been married a month now, feels no different except we have nice curtains and some new kitchen stuff....I didn't get the classic car gift from the uncle-in-law like I was hoping haha
Starting another semester which means an extra $200 a month for a few months for being a TA, guess where $$$ gets to go?
Excited about future caR endeavors (see above)
Only car guy I am friends with just left for Oklahoma to pick up his F-body Camero RS with E90 blower....excited to help him on his quest to 500 hp.

I'm not sure which ypu remember more, your first peer-reviewed paper or your first marriage :) Loved Logan so much I stayed there for 2 BS degrees (Biology and Chemistry) and an MS degree (Biochemistry). Guess it has changed a lot since the early 70's. Have you had the typical newlywed event yet? You come home to find your wife cleaning the bathroom and your comment is "What? Are we moving??"
