The start of something wonderful

June 19, 2007

Spring term is over, and I emerged from my cave. The last three days were a blur, but here are tidbits. . .

  • Commencement: my diploma is fake.
  • Dinner with my family: togetherness is a nice change of pace.
  • A bike ride through the rose garden: Fawn and Michael are two wonderful humans.
  • The Bloch family graduation party: Sophie’s ability to bring people together is a constant source of wonder.
  • Driving to California: listening to ancient mix tapes, but looking-forward to the future.

Until September, I’m working and playing in California. Cheers to the start of something wonderful.


Cake-Off 2007

June 15, 2007

Last week, Peter and I challenged each other to a “cake-off.” This competition pits Peter’s best cake recipe against mine. We invited other friends, and two cakes transformed into seven cakes.

The winner? I vote for Tracy’s lemon bunt cake. (To her credit, she is basically a professional chef).

A milestone, or something like it.
