The irony of going to eat at a Lebanese restaurant in Cortland with elizabetheileen tonight didn't escape me. :-) I chatted briefly with one of the owners about the conflict, and he said his relatives are all safe, as well.
Pita Gourmet provided yet another fantastic dinner, which ended with strong, sweet Lebanese coffee.
The thunderstorm I figured would turn up eventually did so while we were eating, and it's still quite humid outside... and not quite cool enough for my tastes inside. Ah well. Off to bed!
