Friends came over tonight and brought bags of tacos, and media. The tacos are from a little hole in the wall place on the near south side, and they're absolutely perfect. Just tortillas with meat, fresh chopped cilantro, lime, and onion. You can get cheese, or avocado, but... you don't need it. They are perfectly done in their simplicity. We chowed down.
Also, they brought media. Theoretically I'll have two days' bedrest after the transfer, and I've put out the call: lend me books and movies so I don't go completely mental, please. I have wonderful friends who've responded to the call, with everything from Major League to Nigella Lawson.
FYI, retrieval is scheduled for Monday.
