Our friend, Vidya, came from Philly to spend Sat. night with us. When he walked in the front door – he couldn’t recognize Jeremy without his goatee. Vidya was a few years ahead of me in grad school – helped me out on my slightly disastrous research project. We stayed up late, late, late talking about Indian politics. Diplomats, conspiracy theories and LGBT rights. Reminded me that I should read Son of the Circus again. Seems like just yesterday we were all sitting around grad student housing watching Friends and Seinfeld.
