Things didn’t turn out that well for the Suns in game 5, even though they played hard and had it tied up until the final 0.2 seconds. Sigh. I’ve been reading Herodotus recently, and it seems that in the real world, Xerxes and the Persians win more often than not. (This could be one reason why Herodotus’s book was so darn popular; it showed a real-life example of the underdog winning very convincingly.)
Thursday: went out for lunch with Stephanie and Iqbal. Iqbal used to ride the bus with us, but then he moved to a house that was much further away, so now he takes a different bus. That was nice. And we’ve still got hardware problems with one machine at work, which are really annoying. But anyway, it’ll be Friday soon, and we’ll all be greatly relieved when that happens.
