Hans, Amelia and I went to a very swanky PhD party in downtown Minneapolis. Everyone behaved themselves rather well and once Amelia realized the host had cats, she was in heaven.
This cat's name is Alfalfa and she pretty much sat on the bed, in that position, the whole time of the party. Whenever Amelia needed a kitty fix, she could go and sit on the bed, pet the cat and go back to the party. Alfalfa was a great babysitter/live toy.
Amelia is one of the few children in the PhD program at Carlson Business school. She is sitting next to Kang Yong, one of her econometrics classmates from China.
