The Great Iguana Distribution and Meeting Dr. Bob

On June 10th, I had to get up at 4:15 am to do a sanity check on the Blackboard system and then I went back to sleep. Twelve hours later, I picked up AE, GM and met JH and AB at Southpoint. We saw the movie, Cars. It did have a plot and the computer graphics had improved even more since the last Pixar movie I saw. Overall, I found it entertaining. We ate at Champps afterwards, which was extremely noisy. They were showing game three of the Stanley Cup Finals. We had the Great Iguana Distribution in the parking lot afterwards. Several months prior to that night, we had eaten at Chai's and decided that we wanted to submit a group order of iguana manikins from the Dick Blick catalog. They were out of stock of the small size for a while, so it took a while for me to order them. They were just as cool as we had imagined.

Two days later I observed that I suddenly had spiders in my house that were slowly dropping from the ceiling. Ick.

The next day, I met KS, MS and Dr. Bob the Dog on the main quad. This was my first opportunity to meet Dr. Bob, who lives in Richmond She was adorable, soft, sweet and very friendly. We went to Twinnie's to pick up sandwiches and then ate our lunch on the library patio. I got to show KS my cube, too.

That night, SE gave an excellent talk on the Duke iPod Project at the Durham FM Association meeting. I had worried about how a talk would work at Shoney's since the room we had was pretty cramped. It worked out fine, because SE didn't use a projector. Shoney's has since closed, so we won't have to worry about that anymore. It sounds as if we're going to be meeting at the Mayflower seafood restaurant, in September, at least.
