Total days in the winter with in-person social interaction: 58 (63%, a +7.9 percentage point change from winter)


. . . So. Stable trends, notable differences:

Shobhit is up over 20% in points, although his top spot in the rankings remains the same. But his being mostly unemployed helped contribute that, making him match his all-time second-highest point count, which he last reached in winter 2005, and fall three points shy of his record-high of 49, which of course he got in summer 2004, which was the first full quarter we ever knew each other. In any case, it's been a long time since Shobhit got this many points.

Laney holds steady as predicted and as usual in the #2 spot, with 12 points. Ivan repeats last quarter's #3 ranking with his own record number of points, up to 8 after 7 through the winter. Karen's position at #4 is arguably the most predictable, given our twice-monthly lunches. Elden is always with Evan so they tend to be right next to each other on the list, and they make numbers 5 and 6, respectively, followed closely by Danielle with 5 points. Everyone below her has only 1 or 2 points, including friends I have lately spent far less time with such as Shauna (#19) and Gabriel (#25). Changing life circumstances dictate these changes, which are hopefully temporary, in both cases.

I think that covers all the notes I need to make for this quarter's edition, so let's get to the who did what with whom when and where . . .
