Fall arrived this morning with a mighty whump. Actually, I think it sort of started arriving yesterday as I drove around the students arriving in their dorms on campus and nearly killed one who stepped off the curb carrying a big box she apparently couldn't see over and couldn't hear my car coming. Yikes. But then this morning the heater kicked on and KQED said there would be thunderstorms this afternoon and the wind was blowing and I grabbed a coat before leaving the house. Then I went and gave the Fall Kickoff TIPS presentation and I've already gotten 3 big complements. Luckily, the presentation rocked as much as I thought it did. Woohoo! Er... wait, I meant to say, "Yarrr!"
