Wow, I just had the longest Spanish conversation I can remember, like 15 or 20 minutes or something. We had a really busy afternoon and early evening here at Project Read and then most everybody cleared out early except for Thelma. She always makes me practice my Spanish when she asks for help with the computers, but today we also had a relatively long, fairly coherent conversation, all in Spanish. I don't even think I sounded like a complete idiot, though it's sort of hard to tell. It was a brain stretch, and I got a bit stuck sometimes on stuff I knew I should know, but it was good practice.

Something I just realized is that earlier today I passed the midpoints of both Harry Potter book 5 and Waltz Week (including the weekend) at approximately the same time. That's just a random, useless fact there. Unfortunately, I had to come in to work, so I left off after chapter 21, which was a doozy. I'm afraid I may have another night of insufficient sleep ahead of me. :-) But first, I'm heading off to tonight's dance.
