Finally kicked the heat on this week, hard to believe the last time I wrote here we'd just bought this house. But as always, I've been lurking.

This year, we had a baby girl. Plans change.

Mastodon, social media, reading, etc.

Popping in to reintroduce my fingers to the habits of sharing and writing, we are on a seven week trip to various parts of Mexico centered around S' academic research, writing and colleagues. Or focused on enjoying central/southern Mexico, depending what time it is. Here's the first week!

It's a good morning to be listenting to Deadmau5. I'm in a thread-following mood, best to stay away from wikipedia... one of my all-time favorite festival shows was him closing Lolla 2011 in torrential mud. And I haven't read the Ray Bradbury short story behind that linked track, but added it to the library list.

Nothing traumatic to report personally, love to everyone going through hard times here.

I've had good success with this recipe

Caveat: I like Rooster-green-cap sriracha but haven't done a head-to-head comparison.

I don't know why, it's a good August. Everything's compromise, waiting, too hot or too cold, but I like it.

Adventures in moving.
First thoughts on the new town.

Moving preparations continue apace, unless I've forgotten something, which I probably have.

Gonna just leave this open for a few hours.

Boston folks: lunch next Sunday 8/4 a possibility?
