I actually left the building and went on a walk around the slough today. I saw some kind of funky duck with a crest on the back of his head, and I noted some kind of tree was putting out pussy willow looking kind of buds. I snapped a branch off to bring back to my office. On Friday I snapped a branch of witch hazel from in front of the UW Employment office on our walk back to the car after the Limon show, and it was still smelling good last night. Did I mention that on the way back to the car I saw my friend Ann Donovan and her boyfriend Randy? I said hi to her but didn't stop to talk. I figure if she wanted to have anything to do with me she would have done so by now. I also considered not saying anything to her at all, but I guess I wanted her to know that I was still interested in the relationship. And the idea of walking by her on the street and acting like I didn't see her was just too sad.
