My cousin Gwen and her boyfriend Mike drove out from Ohio this morning and are visiting for a couple of days. This is the first time that I have had a relative that was old enough to come and visit me. It is very exciting. We went to the Nines and got some pizza and cheese sandwiches. Then we went to Madeleine’s and got some coffee.

Went to a party for one of Dominica’s sorority sisters today in Buffalo. At the party, I ran into a friend that I used to work with at Pizza Hut in Geneseo in 1995. She now lives in Charleston, South Carolina. It was pretty weird to run into her at a party for someone that I didn’t know in Buffalo after seven years!

Boy time does fly. I stopped by Borders today and picked up Sue Grafton’s “H is for Homicide” and Douglas Adam’s “The Hitchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” on Audio CD. I am driving to New York on Saturday and then to Buffalo later on Saturday and then back to Ithaca on Sunday so I have about twelve hours of car time in there and they will help out a bit. I also need to stop by the Barnes and Nobles in Vestal to get a good copy of the Linus Torvalds autobiography “Just For Fun” and that will give me another hour to listen to as well.
