Of course, there was a pile of work waiting for me back at the office. I’ll sprinkle Madison tidbits in with regular weblog entries over the next few days.

Just down the block from my friend Marjorie’s place is the Crystal Corner bar, where apparently many blues legends have played. Where, I couldn’t tell you, as the place was very small. Average neighborhood-bar-sized, really. But they had well-kept pool tables and cider on tap, and is a nice place to unwind. I was there for a bit on New Year’s Eve afternoon, and while playing pool, I was treated to fun games of pool with Marjorie, the Simpsons on one TV, some football game on a second, and a discussion between two wizened bar patrons about the Chinese calendar, the Gregorian calendar, the origin of year zero, and the whole arbitrary nature of the millennium. That’s a bar worth going to.
