If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Nandini and I hung out last night most profitably. She gave me a Mardi Gras mask and we made pilaf and curry, and I got to introduce her to Josh Kornbluth, Get Your War On, and Penny Arcade.

Off to see Adaptation with Joe.
