Berkeley Update

Took a trip with Laurie back to Berkeley to pick up her diploma. A few things that were different since we left (mostly new buildings… or lack of old ones):

1. There is a gaping hole across the street from Soda Hall… and half of Cory Hall is gone.
2. The new building across from Pimentel is HUGE.
3. They are building some crazy new East Asian Studies Library.. but it doesn’t look like it has windows…
4. The newest hotspot in the Asian Ghetto is.. Satay House?


I am eagerly awaiting my golf clubs which I finally ordered earlier this week. For those golf geeks, I got a set of used Callaway X-16. There is just something about ordering something online.. and then waiting for it… and then checking the fedex/ups website to see your package travel across the nation that makes me even more eager to get whatever you got. And now, with Gmail and their super clever detection of tracking numbers, it is just one click away to see where that package is. Heck, to be completely honest, I found myself checking where my mom’s books were that I ordered for her from Amazon…. why?… I have no idea to this day. Anyway, I hope I am not the only one that has this “problem.”

Man’s Best Friend

This weekend Laurie flew off to Las Vegas to have a fun time with her friends from Berkeley. As a result, I have had the luxury of dog-sitting Toby for the entire weekend. I have figured out why dogs have become man’s best friend and the answer is simple. This guy is ALWAYS excited to see me. Who wouldn’t like that! He wags his tail furiously when I get home, when I throw his toys around, and even when I wake up. This guy just doesn’t care that.. well… I just am not that exciting. Makes me feel like I live a “happenin” life.

Also, here are some great pictures from the Sharks game that Laurie got me tickets to. Go Sharks!
