Thursday Night, August 10

1) Spent most of the afternoon at an office "collaboration fair," an opportunity for other units from throughout MIT to check in with the Association and see where we might work together. Some interesting conversations, and it's surprising to find out who knows some of my volunteers.

2) Drinks at the home of a South End friend, then hobbled home for light dinner and a long "tough love" conversation on the phone. I have to say, my feet are killing me.

3) Without intending it, I'm in the middle of about five books now: Unleash Your Inner Company, So Near and Yet So Far, John Julius Norwich's history of Venice (I forget which one since it's not in front of me), Vital Friends, and Death on the Nile.
