i went over to vist brad at the museum for lunch today. we ate in the cafeteria and then i went with him while he got ready to teach class -- they're going to be weighing ancient weights and trying to fit a variety of finds into a system of measurement -- "ah! this one weighs exactly twice what that one weighs!" sort of thing -- i'm always fascinated by the storage area, with all those just amazing things waiting for some grad student to realize that it's a missing piece to a larger puzzle.
then on the way back i stopped in the gift shop and bought a mood ring.
when i got in the elevator a guy got in right after me. it was David Silverman
