December 2, 2002

music: the whirring of my computer (yes, again)
mood: okay, a little sick though

Considering I don't have a job, things have been pretty hectic lately. I turned in the first draft of my thesis a couple of weeks ago. Since then, I have been working on a paper for the PICS conference in May (the paper is due in January if I get accepted). It is pretty much done, but I want to see the comments from my thesis draft before I turn in my paper. Since my funding ran out and I don't have a job yet, I think I may be working on the ART-SI web site for a couple of weeks,as well as making changes to a paper on LCDs that we are submitting to Color Research & Application soon. Two weekends ago, we went to Don's grandmother's house for a combination Thanksgiving dinner/birthday party (for Don). His Grandma Bunny got us addicted to Skip-Bo. I used my new digital camera that mom and dad got me as an early christmas present. Here are some pictures that I took recently. The night before we went to his grandmother's house, we had a birthday party at our house for Don. I think it was pretty fun. I made lots of food, cause parties are my only excuse to cook cute little appetizers, etc. We had about 13 people here, which is pretty big for our small living room. For Thanksgiving, we went to my Dad's house where Anna made a great dinner and Don got to meet a lot of my family that he had never met before. We played lots of Skip-Bo while we were home in Albany. On Black Friday, he made me go to Crossgates (one of NYs largest malls). Not happy about that. I hate crowds and I feel clostraphobic. Then Saturday, on the way home from Albany, we met his dad and his girlfriend for dinner at Applebee's in Auburn. Then we played Skip-Bo with them! I have been spending a lot of time making jewelry and such for the Old Tyme Christmas in Weedsport (Don's home town). I am going to sell them there. I will have a table right in front of the Key Bank- come see me!
