Greetings from Graduation Week

My day was all chores, and I have a bunch more to get done before tomorrow afternoon when we are going to College Park for Adam's graduation from the University of Maryland's College of Computer, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences. (The full university commencement ceremony, which requires tickets so we couldn't take my parents, is on Friday, but Adam wants to go to a graduation party instead of to hear Wallace Loh and Michael Bloomberg speak, so since he gets his degree -- actually a dual degree in math and computer science -- on Thursday, I think we're not going to that one.)

All the excitement around here is that our neighbors are getting their roof replaced, so theirs will look as new as ours before they rent out the house again, so there was hammering and sawing and the cats were incredibly displeased to have more noise. We watched the live All in the Family/The Jeffersons event and I was amazed at how well the social commentary in the scripts held up with the exception of some of the language. Also, the orgy on What We Do in the Shadows was a riot. Flickr is down for maintenance, so tonight you're getting a rerun of Daniel's graduation:
