Missing Matt Romano and Lucy Liu. He would have been 33 last Friday. (He's the one that found Lucy and brought her into our lives. I'll never forget that Saturday afternoon when I was working at the Wine Bar and he excitedly walked into the patio with this beautiful black dog and and he said, "This is Lucy! Do you like her?!" And I said "Yes!" and we both laughed and I greeted her for the first time. It was a beautiful night and he sat at a patio table with friends and Lucy and I kept telling all of my tables, "That's my new dog!". I will never forget how happy he was that day).
It looks like hell literally had to freeze over for me to get there, but today is my thesis defense. Hopefully by the next time I check mlkshk, I'm Dr. Klathrin! Also, secondary hope: I don't get frostbite. Enjoy the polar vortex, y'all!
