I recently, for no good reason and at no expense, won some money. This allowed me to spend tonight doing what I think is the highest calling in my life: treating friends to a good dinner. Good friends, good food, good conversation. We went to Himalayas, the best restaurant in Boulder in my estimation. We stayed a long while, talking and eating. We ended up talking with the guy who runs the place for a while, too. He gave us their chai and saag recipes, and then pointed out that they had accidentally made a double order for some takeout, and that we should take the extra.

Fortune, thank you.

(Beyond that, life has been busy—reading, writing, grading, playing.)
