Also, they are unlined, which I think is very comfortable for all day wear, especially if traveling.

So a high school senior here in town committed suicide by jumping off a bridge. He's the third teenager from our town to commit suicide in the last year. Until this year I don't think anything like this had happened for many years. It's weird, and sad.

From what I've heard (not much) there's some suggestion that there might have been a bullying problem.

We only have one high school in EDH. As far as I know they were all unrelated.

Until I took my blue blazer in to be tailored a bit more and have the new buttons put on, I guess I hadn't realized how big of a hole (figuratively and literally) it would leave in my closet. I should get it back on Wednesday next week--I will have to hold on until then.

So I'm going to some sort of wine/canape/cheese event after work. It's being put on my a colleague of mine at his home. Hopefully he has Diet Dew, or at least Diet Coke. After looking at the invitation, it appears that he only lives about a quarter mile from my house, so if worse comes to worst I'll just zip home and grab my own beverage of choice.

Ew. I don't drink Diet Dr. Pepper. Historically I've been a Diet Dew fan, but lately I've been drinking a lot of Diet Sunkist Sparkling Lemonade.

I guess you'll just have to overpack. It sucks, but I'm assuming you'll be driving up so you ought to have room.
