|12:16 am - I wanna be sedated|
Back... not that it matters. Tanglewood was fun; seeing the whole family again (including my wayward cousin) was even more so. The cousin collective all drove out to an expensive, crowded distraction. Everyone was suitably impressed with my vehicle. It was somewhat scary that the wrx made an aggressive speeder out of my mom. But it was unbelievable to open it up on mountain roads. And there is a sick fun to passing someone on a two lane curvy road by catching up with them and then hitting turbo.
In ultimate news... Fiesty won a game! Fiesty has also challenged the winner of the All-Rookie game on Thursday. I don't think I qualify for the first game, although by the technical rules, I could be a rookie. But we do get to play, so that should be interesting. I did not make it in time back on Sunday to play in our games, and it looks like our next game is going to be rescheduled (and probably unlikely to intersect with when I am in PIT).
Basically have moved into the new apartment. Still a lot of unpacking. And getting used to a significantly longer and less convenient bus ride. But the place is just so happy.
And now back to work for me -- I managed to accomplish very little in the previous 10 work hours. And I have a meeting at 10am about my "progress". Woohoo!

If it wasn't bucy, and everything, I would almost think a carpool would work. I am actively considering getting a bike -- I am 3 miles from campus, but it is relatively flat. I haven't owned a bike in years
Meeting survived. Nice to have a brilliant gradstudent
to work with to cover for us both. And I get cool messages like "Don't worry. I got some plan.
And her name is Fang Fang! Which is like the name of a really mean panda bear, or something.
She doesn't come close to Dong Wang (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the competition for most unfortunate foreign name.
Yeah, Bucy kind of schedules his day such that carpooling would be non-optimal.
You're much closer than I thought. I am about 2.76 miles to work, though maybe a little hillier and windier than Pittsburgh.
