A number of friends, well-wishers, and enemies have been asking me to update my poor, neglected blog. I have two working hypotheses; the first hypothesis is that people care about me and want to know about my thoughts and adventures, the second hypothesis is that people don't like me so they want more of my time devoted to blogging so I stop bothering them so much. In either case, it is my pleasure to oblige, so here is a quick rundown of everything that's happened to be in the past 3 months. I didn't actually remember anything, so I dug through my picture archives to jog my memory.
Before leaving Eugene, I decided to throw a going away party for myself. I invited all of my many friends. I even promised free pizza. No one but cyclists showed up, either because my only friends are cyclists, or because cyclists are the only people whose love of free pizza overshadows their dislike of me.
The next order of business was to pack up all of my worldly possessions and pack them into a subcompact car with a 90 horsepower engine...
Somehow, it all fit...
After that, I drove to California and got Nick.
Then I got Google Glass.
Then I got an apartment.
Then I got a desk.
Then I got a bed.
Then I got a TV.
Then I got a banana split.
In case it wasn't clear by this point, I've been trying really hard to buy myself some happiness. It hasn't worked so far, but I'm cautiously optimistic that the next trinket will bring eternal bliss.
Then I saw some deer on a bike ride.
Then I went to Boston.
Then something happened to my office.
Then I went to some Stanford volleyball games.
Then Nick and I watched Dunston Checks In.
Then Nick did some ironing.
Then Nick got a lot of Apple products.
Then I decorated the guest room for Ty.
Then Ty liked his guest room.
Then Ty came to visit and we went to watch Stanford volleyball.
Then I ate a giant cookie.
Then I biked to the coast.
Then we all went to In N Out.
Then my doctor wore Google Glass.
Then I went to watch a World Cup fencing event in San Francisco.
Then I had to go back to work on Monday. Arrivederci!
