I had a long day – took my wife to Phoenix, to put her on a plane to Chicago, where she has a job interview. Hopefully that will go well; she seems excited by what the company is trying to do. It would be somewhat of a switch for her, but she seems to want that too. (Yes, I’m being deliberately vague about who this company is. No, I can’t really give you a good reason why – afraid of jinxing the deal?)

On the way back, I stopped in at the Phoenix-area Fry’s Electronics, to pick up some blank CD-R’s. This was my first visit to a Fry’s, and I was suitably impressed – so much stuff!. I wasn’t able to give it the time it deserved, unfortunately, as I needed to beat the gawd-aweful Phoenix rush-hour traffic, so that I could have dinner with a post-doc candidate who’s in town for the weekend. Can’t beat that free food…

I’d offer up a link to Fry’s, but they don’t seem to have a web site. Maybe that’s part of the magic. There is Breakfast at Fry’s, however, which makes more sense now that I’ve been to one.

Because of all this, I didn’t really get any surfing done, so I don’t really have an update to speak of. Sorry 'bout that – hopefully next week will be a bit better.

Before I stumble off to bed, a couple of personal shout-outs:

First, best of luck to Lynette as she enters the beginning of the end.

And, happy birthday to my paternal grandfather, who turns 90 on Saturday. Happy Birthday, Grandpa Anderson! Wish I could be there for the bash…
