Got a call from SonofV today. He wants to visit this weekend. We're gonna work on our costumes for SakuraCon.

I'm happy!

daughter of glatt just heard from her second college. Dickinson. They gave her what I understand is a pretty good deal, although I still have sticker shock.

Annual sticker price cost of attendance is $69.1K but her special price is $24.3K.

By way of comparison, in-state University of Virginia is $30.4K. Rumor has it that UVA is much less likely to give scholarships, they mostly do loans. So these private out of state schools are actually cheaper with their scholarships.

But she got in! She's currently 2-0. Waiting to hear from 3-4 more.

That's very exciting! You have a lot to be proud of. My congratulations to her, and to you and her mother. WTG!

Went out to dinner with a good friend, fancy place that opens at 5pm with a line down the block because they won't take reservations. 45 minute wait for a table, and both bars backed up three deep. $9 for a glass of Cabernet, $6 for Beam and ginger, $10 for a burger to $25 for a steak. Her son is a chef there and the owner comped our meal and drinks for four. I did take care of the waitress and Jazz Trio though. Splendid night.

Only the highest calibre of ladies and gentlemen tip the dinner band.

Sounds like patting m'self on the back, but, if they're good, I always send the band drinks at some point.

Helps get your requests played.

So, Toad is wrong about that "highest calibre" bit.

Helps get your requests played, though.

Not patting myself, Relieving the embarrassment of the waitress getting stiffed on the bottom line... what's 30% of 0?
The three piece Jazz combo? Well jazz is not my forte, the only thing I could request is "Take Five" and that might be an insult.
The guy who was I presumed the leader, playing an upright piano, and was dressed perfectly for an 1890 NOLA whorehouse.
They were nice to listen to with no urge to sing along or intrusive on conversations... just a little toe tapping.
Oh, and when the ambient noise overwhelms my hearing aids so I can't follow the conversation (or get bored with it) I could crane my neck a little like I was watching the band and not seem rude. Worth every penny.
