Games and Zoo and Sakura Mitsuri and I'm so tired I can barely see straight

Oh my god I'm so tired. Today begins the month of Wall To Wall Workshops at work. I have four days on my calendar for the whole month when there's not a workshop going on, and I'm already feeling worn out.

Admittedly, this is almost entirely because I accidentally stayed up late last night writing social commentary on FB, and then when Miss Ioliel Kittycat woke me up at dawn wanting breakfast, and then I couldn't get back to sleep, so I only got half as much sleep as I normally do. I wasn't feeling sleepy during the day, but every so often I could feel my thoughts decohering like a flock of birds suddenly taking flight. Soon, soon there will be bed.

I still need to post about the trip to SF, but I should mention that Bryree and Marty were in town and in celebration we had pizza and boardgames at the Floyds' on Friday night, which was excellent. And then on Saturday, I went to the zoo to meet up with a visiting walrusjester and his family (plus Floyds and Gamachen). The Denver zoo is way nicer than it used to be. I saw elephants and monkeys and otters and three baby clouded leopard cubs who were so damn cute it hurt. Seriously, it was almost literally painful. And then Jerry and I went out to dinner at Dae Gee for all-you-can-eat Korean BBQ with Bob & Jeff, and so that was entirely excellent also. And then yesterday the two of us bopped downtown for the Sakura Mitsuri Japanese festival. It's just a little one-block street fair, but we had fun window-shopping and had ourselves some tasty teriyaki chicken and spam musubi for lunch. OH! And I bought an entire bag of aji-no-moto at the little Japanese supermarket! Mmmm, umami.

ETA: Oh, and having met Matt's youngest, who is about to head off to college to study zoology, I now have my official piece of unsolicited advice for young scientists: Learn Bayesian statistics.
