I received a (shocking) e-mail from Arvind about my EAGLE announcement and award. Later on, at home, I got one from Carl K. It just floored me. Arvind had showed him my "Cost of the Closet" poster, and he said, "I loved it!" Cool!
I left work at 4:30. Robert had arrived already when I got home. We left for the N.C. Museum of Art, since it was "Free Friday" at the museum. We saw Robert M. there (who had sent me e-mail about "Free Friday" earlier in the week.) We went through the Augustus Saint-Gaudens: American Sculptor of the Gilded Age exhibit.
We had thought about having dinner there, but we were really very under-dressed, and they had about 135 reservations for dinner for the evening. We bagged that, and went to Crowley's on Dixie Trail instead. I had a killer Grilled Teriyaki Chicken Salad.
We stopped by the Harris Teeter to get ingredients for the Pistachio Nut cake. At home, I mixed it, with Robert's help, and baked it. It turned out great! I had to remove a shelf from my refrigerator in order to fit the glass cake dish in it.
We got to bed early, did a few crossword puzzles, MMMMMMMed, and tried to fall asleep before any noise next door might start up.
