well, i'm unpacked, for loose values of unpacked. everything's piled up fairly precariously, but it's all out the boxes... shinjisan is going to be in town tonight; it'll be good to see him again. i'm drinking the first of my morning coffee. i'm hoping that awakeness follows on its heels. and, i'm happy, because i left the house at 7:30 and got to work on time. rock.
