Shira's grandmother passed away two days ago (on Friday). She was 94 years old. She'll be greatly missed as can be expected. We drove up just a few hours ago to be here for the funeral today.

As usual, Shira drove the whole 7hrs, and now we are both pretty exhausted. She for driving. Me for passengering (hey, it's not as easy at it looks).

On a plus note, I got to re-read a chunk of a book on Haskell, and for the first time, I think I get it. I mean really get it. Wow, what an impressive language. The combination of pattern matching, lazy semantics, use of automatic currying and just plain emphasis on terseness makes for unique code. Unique good, or unique bad, I have yet to decide. But it certainly is unique.

It makes most perl code look long winded.
