Highlights from 2013
2013 was a year of travel. On a trip to Europe I fulfilled a lifelong dream of visiting Vienna and fulfilled my fairly standard ongoing dream of visiting London and Paris. Gene and I also traveled to the Pacific Northwest for his brother’s wedding and some work-related nonsense. I even got to take a best-friends minibreak with Michele to Fort Bragg, the most glamorous fort available within a day’s drive, not counting Fort Mason during the SF Library Book Sale.
Here are some more highlights from 2013:
A Wednesday List
Stuff I don’t like.
Driving Miss Austen
The driving styles of Jane Austen’s heroines, according to me.

On why I will never have kids, probably.
Why did Michele cross the street?

Gene continues to be the best husband ever.
A tiny pillow
A fantastic prank from me, the master of pranks.

Gene gives me the gift of knowledge.
