I finally broke down and bought a Nintendo DS Lite. I've been wanting one for a while, but was wanting to wait until I finished the thesis. When a coworker came in with one (at the wind tunnel), I broke. I had to have one. I did compromise with myself, and I have to work on the thesis before I get to play on it. So I did some work while it's sitting on the charger. I got Brain Age2 and Super Mario Bros. I saw that they have a game that is like the puzzles I'm so addicted to (see www.griddlers.com), and I'll probably pick that one up before I leave. The DS I got is Crimson and black, and came in a pack with the Brain Age game and a carrying case.
I'm looking forward to going home on Friday, and seeing my kittens, and, of course, Larry. He promises me lots of fun when I get home. He said he got me something - I'm pretty sure it's either Guitar Hero or a Wii. He said it will be kept at his place, which is better, since he's closer to getting his thesis signed than I am.
It is thundering outside here in Dallas. I hope we don't lose power to the tunnel again. Other than that, things are ok here. I'm trying to catch some sleep when I can - I was doing very well there for a while, but now, I can only catch sleep in spurts. I also hope that my kittens aren't too pissed at me when I get home, so I can get some quality cuddle time in.
