Great Weekend

Well, we were supposed to go to Boston this weekend to visit a friend and help another friend move. We were just outside of town when Phil's car broke down (overheated) and we had to head back home. Boston will have to do without us for a while.

After pointing the car in the right direction, we screwed around for a while and finally went out to a coffee shop and hacked for a while. This week I made new packages for xppaut and hugs. I took over as maintainer of hugs.

Saturday I went out for breakfast with Phil & Jaquelin & walters, then went for a bike ride for a few miles with Phil & Jaquelin. We biked from the campus area to a lake where people walk their dogs (hey, this is Columbus, Ohio, we have to take our "nature" where we can get it.) We wandered around the lake for a while and through the woods to this little river. We walked out onto these rocks on the river and stood there chatting and watching the geese for a while. Eventually, the water level started rising and we became stranded on the rocks before we knew it. (Stranded in the sense that we couldn't escape without getting our feet wet.) We watched the water level rise for a while then took off our shoes and walked through the water back to shore when all of our rock island was gone.

Later, I watched a movie with my gf and we went to bed.

Sunday I got a new laptop, much like the one walters mentions here.

Yesterday I went to this new japanese place in town called "Bento Go-Go" and "Asian Yum-Yum". It was good food.
