Shweta's friend Conor Quinn (possibly Connor) was visiting for the past couple of days. He's a linguistics student at Harvard, and was in town on his way to Indonesia, where he's doing a month of field work. He speaks half a dozen languages, most of which I had never heard of, and will happily animadvert on the resemblance of words or names that come up in casual conversation, to words in other languages.

We (me, him, Shweta, Nathaniel)went out to lunch at Vik's, which is a really great Indian chaat house down on Fourth and Addison. Then we wandered up and down the Farmer's Market and the Telegraph bookstore row for awhile, and in the evening we went to see Spider-Man (the movie).
