All By Myself

I'm all by myself this week as Kevin is at a conference in the wilds of Los Angeles. Yes, he's staying the night there. The sessions go from very early to quite late and coupled with the 1 hour drive (worse in traffic, more on that in a second) we figured it would probably just be easier for him to stay there. His first session was at 8 this morning and we figured it would probably be a good 2 hour drive--apparently not. He made it in an hour and got to go eat donuts like a real programmer.

The weather is getting a bit cooler. Not cold, but not summer anymore. Yesterday we bought our glass for our first projects. I naively thought we could just go in and march out with it, but apparently not. Good thing we didn't wait until Thursday! Anyway, so now I go back on Thursday to pick it up. Kevin left me his car to do so. I think my car would have been fine but I'm a bit paranoid after the big scary lecture our teacher gave about safely handling glass. I just hope it doesn't break. I have a feeling it's going to be expensive, even though our pieces are relatively small. I did allow plenty of room for breakage. I collected some practice glass but forgot to buy it when all was said and done. But as it turns out, we're not going to be using the glass we bought for class 2 so I'm going to use that to practice with. I have some really hard cuts so I definitely want to get some practice in before Friday.
