grattis på födelsedagen!

in preparation for grad school applications, Phil and I took a practice GRE this morning at 9am. By 12, our brains were of a creamed corn consistency, but we finished and did decently. i did much better on the verbal than the practice test I took a few months ago, and I was in the 73rd percentile for the math/quantitative part. it's nothing to brag about (especially if you are philip i-eat-mathematics-for-breakfast white and such a score would cause a total meltdown), but this little french major who hasn't taken a math class since high school calculus was happy. 

afterwards we were invited up to salt lake for a little surprise birthday dinner at cheesecake factory for my friend/Swedish teacher, Jacky. we ate so much bread and pasta and cheesecake. we thought it was kinda funny that they offer a "low-carb" cheesecake selection. i figure if i am going to eat cheesecake, then i am going to eat full-fledged, fully calorific cheesecake!
