longer post to follow

Thursday I had anatomy lecture in the morning, worked most of the day and then went to anatomy lab for more squickful cat dissection. My ear (jaw) was hurting and I didn't feel up to the drive to Dallas so I blew off the PiL show.  Left home about 5:30 Friday morning for the drive to Dallas to meet with my surgeon, then lunch at an Indian place with aepilot_jim and then to the orthodontist for my adjustment.  Then to the Apple store to order (yes, order) my new iPhone 5. I was going to get the 4S, but I succumbed to Jim's peer pressure and ordered the 5.  He reasons that I change phones so infrequently that even the 5 will be obsolete by the time I change next time, so I might as well go whole-hog now.  Then, of course,  I proceeded to buy about $100 of accessories, including a heavy-duty Otter box to protect my investment. 

Went to Nordstrom Rack and got some mittens with a phone-screen-friendly patch on the index fingers so you can use your phone without de-mittening.

Had  a very nice visit with my parents Friday night/Saturday morning, then my niece and nephew and brother-in-law came over and the nice visit continued.  Headed home about Noon and ended up home before dark to reunite with the wee furballs.  Worked quite a bit on my Macroeconomics and a fair bit on anatomy.  More anatomy studying to be done today and a test to take.  I was a bit wobbly on my grades there for a bit, but I think I'm trending in a good direction. 

Sorry for spotty blogging of late, but work/school/sleep seems to be my entire existence much of the time, lately.  Happily so.  It's all for the cause.

Did you try the new location for Pasand's in north Dallas called Vindu at Frankford and the Tollway? I was quite pleased to find them again after they moved.

Get the education, blogging will wait... :-)

tc - that is precisely where we had lunch on Friday - Vindu. I have passed many a happy lunch reading and munching at Pasand, and that Campbell/Coit location was not far from my previous house in Prestonwood, so Vindu is a favorite now, too. Like you, I was pleased to find them in their new form.

Old NFO - of course, you are absolutely right, my friend. :)

Just as long as you take breaks for mental health. Like, say, arranging to get to Houston in May... ;)

Yay iPhone 5!
