Wait, you guys keep records? Yes. Would you like a look at yours? I vaguely get the racefail thing but I don't get the annualness of it. Is there some race-related drama every year? Or just 2008 and 2009? Without being too snarky, some... [more]

Should I call her and tell her I'm sorry I can't make it, and that I'll try to come visit her soon? I'd go this one better and make a time to come visit, so instead of "see you soon" I'd say "will be there on March 17"... [more]
