Fishy Circumstances

Hail

It's been hailing for the past several hours, a very fine hail, which has accumulated like snow, a full inch of it, but still hurts in little flecks when it hits my skin. At least I didn't need to spend too much time outside in it. It's still going strong. It looks like winter again outside.

PhD - the comic

Thanks to makyo, who introduced me to it, I used up the entirety of yesterday evening reading the comic PhD. It's a weekly comic about life as a graduate student, one which has been running since '97. I found it absorbing, funny, and very true. It has a certain amount of long-term plot development, but I think it would be quite accessible if you just wanted to take a look at a few of them. I recommend it.
