1. Justin came by and we had a long talk about the relation between modernity and old traditions and I learned more than I had previously known about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Fascinating.
2. Then Sally came by and told me all about her travels this past December to Vietnam and Cambodia. Once again: fascinating.
3. My new favorite sports team, thanks to Rocket, the San Jose Sharks are one win away from the Conference Finals in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Tonight's game was a 4-3 overtime thriller, a win over the Detroit Red Wings. The Sharks fought back from a 3-1 third period deficit to win it. In Detroit. Very impressive. I hope Rocket, who saw the game on television (I listened on the radio) will write up some post game reflections.
