I'm so glad you did! It was wonderful, and I had tears in my eyes.

So far, besides the excellent weather. . . grocery shopping. I bought a Daiya harvati wedge, EB buttery popcorn, pizza-flavored lentil chips, and the Silk vanilla latte stuff for cheap at the discount grocery store (and some staples like oats and potatoes, but that stuff is boring and doesn't really warrant mention). I feel like such a stereotypical PPK-er for getting all excited about it.

And! I'm going to see They Might Be Giants tonight, so that probably trumps grocery shopping. Hope they play mostly older stuff (I'm not crazy about their newest album. . . ) but in any case, can't wait to dance!!!

Well this was yesterday but I'm posting it pretending I did so yesterday!

Frakken put on a show! It went off (mostly) without a hitch! My friends painted a big sign that says "We love you, Tyler!" Quite a few people in the audience that I didn't expect to be there! I got really good feedback about my performance!

I will post pics/video when it's available.

One of my dearest friends was unsurprisingly in town and available for dinner. I hadn't seen her in almost a year! It was so incredibly lovely.

I'm glad it went well! I am sorry I wasn't able to make it. Are y'all doing more performances? It looked like this was more of an in progress from the FB page.

Sunshine. Also, playing my recorder in the sunshine. (Tomorrow promises to have more sunshine, and warmer weather. It might be Prof. Gruntschnabel ice cream times. Specifically, madagascar matcha times. Yo.)

Sunshine in Brooklyn! Chicago hasn't seen the sun since Monday, or at least I haven't. This morning on the way to the airport, it was actually snowing. The sun reflecting off the clouds on the way to New York was so bright. I needed that.

The hotel we stayed at in Brighton had a (included!) vegan breakfast. Totally not my normal jam (beans, roasted tomato, hashbrown, mushrooms, toast, marmelade) but a novelty!

Yeah this was a very shortened version, and very low-tech version, the idea is to do a full real version late summer at some point. I'm guessing a big reason for this version was as something (footage, reviews) the creator could use to help get some real funding for a full run.

my day started out really bad, woke up super depressed and thought I was never going to make it out of bed. Well, I made it out of bed, and came home after work and created the most delicious dinner out of what I had around- came up with a citrus maple-chipotle marinated tempeh, sweet potatoes mashed with pineapple and ginger, and spinach sauteed with the leftover marinade. Ending the night on a high note, feeling proud of my creative home chefing skills, it gives me hope that I'm not completely burnt out yet, that I will still do something interesting with my life.

Went out for dinner with my family at the place with my favorite vegan pizza. (Bonus: there was a woman at the next table over wearing a shirt that said vegan on it, and I got really kind of excited.)

I skyped in to a book club meeting with my dear friends for 4 hours! It was mostly just chit chat, a lot about my friend's pregnancy and how she is going to have a girl and how she (the baby) is going to be surrounded by awesome empowered women scientist aunties. I love my friends and I feel so much better after visiting with them. I wish I lived closer.

I have a lot of older friends. One of them is an uncle-grandfather-type whom I've known for 12 or 13 years. He is one of the smartest, most thoughtful people I know, and today he paid me this awesome compliment (in a FB thread about Bengali New Year, and a Bengali message he posted which I couldn't read):

Quote:
Well, even if you can't read Bengali you're still on my list of the 10 smartest people I know personally. (Pretty good considering 2 of the other people have Nobel Prizes).




eta: He's not kidding about the Novel Prize winners. He's a really smart, really well-connected uncle-grandfather-type.

yesterday we went to a local park that has 3,000 cherry trees at sunset, and met this sweet family who had driven two hours to take their annual photo in the park, only to find out that they had forgotten their camera. So we ended up taking pictures of them and sending it, and they were so grateful and sweet with us. we got the nicest thank you email from them!

Tofulish, that's such a nice story. It reminds me to concentrate on the small niceties of life that pop up here and there.

And also that not all people are d-bags.

Congratulations biorobotics! How wonderful!

we are driving home from a wonderful PPKplaydate with sashi and Audrey and their families at Union Sq and Peacefoods and everyone was just wonderful and beautiful. And the food was megayum
