I can’t believe D. is leaving. I really can’t believe it. I don’t know what the library will be like without her. Sadder. Less fun. Less good. Less useful and responsive and communicative. So we went out to lunch, on me, I got the ramen with pork and D. got the ramen with chicken and she told me, among other things, why Cantonese? We got the ice cream for dessert, a scoop of green tea and a scoop of black sesame, the black sesame was far and away my favorite.
