am--6 Some pickups w/ various groups. It's fun to show kids they have more than they think they do.

pm--1.5 Another heat run a bit slower than the other day.

I finished Oblivion by David Foster Wallace. Conceptually, there are some intriguing stories, mostly tragic juxtapositions, but I prefer his nonfiction.
