University has had a big impact on Engineering Guy (even more so than Computer Dude). The school he goes to is well known for it's school spirit and engineers have the reputation of working hard and playing hard. He was never very spirited in high school but he takes great pride in wearing his school jacket that he "earned the right to wear" after his December exams and is hoping to be a frosh leader next August.
Engineering Dad and I are going to see "Marley and Me" this afternoon. Any tears I feel the need to shed missing my baby will surely flow watching the movie. It might be too soon after losing our Retriever but I do think I'll enjoy the movie for the most part.
