SIgma Tau Delta '08 - Louisville, Day 3

The snow that we thought was going to last all day and give us 10-14 inches of snow stopped just after noon and gave us perhaps 2 inches of snow. This would have been a let down if we all didn't want to go home, but the sun came out, snow melted, and aside from a slightly dangerous walk back from dinner tonight, the weather's change was happily dramatic. After the weather cleared up, and the sun came out and melted much of the snow, I took a walk down to Fourth Street Live, but there wasn't as much there as I remembered there being, or hoped there would be. Since I was close to finishing my book, I bought a few others before meandering home.

I've been up since about 6:45 this morning (it's what happens when you're asleep by 10:30 the night before), which Chris will tell you must mean that something is wrong. I'm still infected with whatever infection I have, but I've been coughing up some lovely stuff all weekend, and my throat occasionally decides to not hurt as much, but I may have to go see Student Health Services on Monday, if this keeps up.

Tomorrow's going to be a bit of a lost day; we have to check out by noon, but we'll need to store our luggage for a couple of hours before our flight, so I'm not sure what we'll do in the meantime. Tonight was the Awards Banquet, but we were a bit late in showing up; there didn't seem to be a place for us to sit and it seems the ceremonies had already started, so we went to the hotel restaurant, Blu, instead. And it was actually really excellent; good food, slightly more formal atmosphere, without being stiff or pretentious. I splurged a bit: Seafood risotto, which came with some very tasty mussels, and some very impressive shrimp, some lobster, and a very large scallop. I had Italian wedding cake for dessert, which was also just amazing. A good evening, indeed.
