|Eh, the third piece of bad luck was pretty lame

That wonderful cool Southern wind came through at 3 p.m. today, like an outdoors air conditioner. It ended three days of vicious heat.|
I spent most of today dispensing advice to people. First, a colleague took me out to coffee so I could give her feedback on her grant application. She took notes and said "wow, that is exactly the advice I need". Very flattering. A student went out to lunch with me and introduced me to a new good Japanese place on campus - I think I gave her good advice, but time alone will tell. Another ex-student stopped by to shoot the shit, then yet another student asked for advice on an article she was writing. I sent 60 emails, mostly to people I liked. The day went quickly.
Somewhere - the coffee place? - I lost my keys. So I had to take the tram home and leave the bike at work.
The Girl and I are now watching 'Generation Kill' - we started watching with the Boy, but it is good enough to keep on watching ourselves. Also, Alex Skarsgard For the Yum.
The Boy called - he's safely arrived in Israel. The consensus around here is: life could be a lot worse.
