It'd be a good restaurant to go to with a large group, say six people.
Back home, after a little time to let the food settle in our stomachs, it was time for cake, tea, and presents. None of us had room for more than a thin slice each. My aunt, uncle, and cousins sent me a CD of Richard Yardumian's Armenian Suite and Symphony No. 2 performed by the Utah Symphony Orchestra, which they found on my Amazon wish list, and which I'd been wanting to get my hands on for some time. I'd read about the tertian twelve-tone system Yardumian had devised (independently of Schoenberg's atonal tone-row system), and wanted to hear what it actually sounded like. Sounds good!
The gift from my parents was a new computer and a flatscreen monitor. I didn't really know how to react. On the one hand, hey, new computer! I wouldn't have to use my dad's, and could go back to doing all my Intarweb stuff in my own room. On the other hand, I'd promised myself that my next computer would be one I'd built myself, with three hard drives in a RAID-5 array using Linux's software RAID driver. I also already own a good monitor. So, while turning it down would be stupid and ungracious, I still felt kinda let down, and angry at myself for feeling let down. Anyway, I figure I can either try to use both monitors in a multi-head arrangement, or just give my dad my old monitor to replace his, which is slowly growing dimmer and dimmer (very dark images may as well be entirely black at this point). Maybe I can fit a couple more hard drives in there and do the RAID array anyway.
