I gave Sharif a couple of presents and a card with the Weighted Companion Cube on the front. He had roses sent to my office. They're still here on my desk, lovely and fragrant and just starting to open. I'll take them home this evening and watch them bloom over the long weekend.
It's always interesting trying to get a vase of flowers home without either crushing the flowers or spilling water all over the car. But I shall prevail!
