Long day... drove all the way to Cleveland to meet with my advisor (for about 45 minutes), met another grad student doing some similar work, finally got a chance to poke my head in at the Kang Do Won to say hi to everyone, and stopped by Mom and Dad's on the way home for dinner.

UPDATE: We didn't get the boat; the owner sold it to someone else.
