Time to brush up on the ol' Spanish.
Good thing we planned a vacation to Oaxaca in October.
If you're coming here to read about linguistics, or internationaly things, you might be interested in the work blog I just started:
I don't think I've had enough posts celebrating Dutch cheeses. My life would be sadder without edam, gouda, and leyden. There's just no way around it.
I am tireder than I have any right to be. It's not just because of lack of sleep, since Saturday night after Puzzle Safari I slept for 10 hours at least, more than making up for the deficits of the week past. It's also not because I've been running like a lunatic, because yesterday I hardly moved from my sofa. Work? house? work? Some combination of all of the above.
This day started out strong and then took a sharp decline downhill. Now I'm sitting in my office practicing active work avoidance and listening to Magnetic Fields and blogging. If the best way to snap yourself out of a funk is to surround yourself by happy people and happy thoughts, I am not really doing that. Magnetic Fields, I tell you! Wtf is wrong with me?
Yesterday was our one year wedding anniversary. It's been a pretty good year, so we celebrated by going to Le Pichet for dinner on Saturday night -- good, but not great -- and hiking at Thunder Creek/4th of July pass in the Northern Cascades yesterday. 10.2 miles later we were a bit dehydrated, and coming down off the mountain is kind of brutal in terms of the steepness and the associated effects on the ol' knees, but it was a great day.
