It rained, a lot, today. Apparently there was even flooding in New York City.
Luckily I didn’t have to go out for lunch, since we had a speaker and sandwiches. The sandwiches, although free, were not remarkable. But the speaker was a local magician, who talked about his career, magic in general, the psychology of misdirection. He performed several tricks and got the audience — myself included, briefly — involved, and I’d say it was probably one of our better “brown bag lunches.”
The rain had stopped by the time I left for the day, and it actually got fairly sunny. So that was nice, too. And somehow I managed to get some work done today. Not completely done — I’m not sure I’ll know what to do with myself when any of the books I’m working on is actually published and off my desk — but measurably further along. Like, I got a lot done yesterday, too — some of which I actually had to repeat today, unfortunately — but I didn’t feel closer to completing a goal.
Today I did. And there was a free lunch and a magic show to boot.
