Break officially ends in 9 hours. Let's sum up: I went to Georgia, I came back. That's when all the fun began. Ready set go! I spent the next day back with Toni, catching up from our six months apart, Salem came to visit me in Woodland Park and met my family, minus my sister, we saw Memoirs of a Geisha (an excellent movie, by the way) and then I returned to Boulder where we had a party that night and I got to catch up with Jyoti and see Trackmaster in the first time in forever, we hot-tubbed, Ricky and I began an arms race of psychic energy and reiki technique, Salem and I had dinner and played cards with her mother and her mother's boyfriend, I went to the stock show with Salem and her father where I rediscovered my determination to raise llamas, I started up systema again now that I'm back in Boulder, paid my deposit for the systema Summit of the Masters in August, worked on the curriculum I've been developing for iD Tech Camps, played classic video games in celebration of Wintereenmas, went skiing at Copper, had a going away party for our friend Beth who's now studying abroad in Italy, started reading 1984, named the monkey The Albatross, learned five different card games, started making vague plans for summer, roasted s'mores in our fire place (kindling provided by Capital One and Visa platinum card junk mail offers), got a haircut, had Chipotle several times, did some deep thinking, and rediscovered the semi-artistic side of myself. Now it's 4 in the morning and sleep beckons me, begging for one last fling before school begins again. I can't resist any longer.
And it's official - we have a forge set up in our backyard now.
