Although it was over a month ago, I just have to jot a few notes down about my wonderful vacation to Los Angeles to visit my brother.

It was great!

Why, you ask? Well let me count the reasons:

  1. Convertables don't cost much more than other rentals and SoCal weather was made for them.
  2. There is parking everywhere. Living in the Boston area, this is a real treat.
  3. Beaches. Beautiful women. So much sun.
  4. It doesn't seem to matter which Mexican food restaurant you pick, they all seem to be great.
  5. My brother has a fabulous apartment, and it is a very, very gracious guest!

I could go on and on, but lets just say I loved it!

Meanwhile, back in Cambridge, I'm still trying to focus myself on stuff other than work (which is going well, mind you). I guess I'm making some progress, at least I'm having more fun lately -- dancing, movies, walking on the beach (not as fun as California's but better than a city sidewalk at least!).

I definitely know I have nothing to complain about. I mean, my friend is working but his company just stopped being able to make payroll (of course he is looking for a job but apparently the Dallas market isn't great). And I haven't (yet, knock on wood) had anyone die on me recently -- three people from work have had people somewhat close to them die. I have to say I can't personally imagine, because the last time someone close to me died I was very young still.

Okay, this was supposed to be a short note and it has turned into rambling. Laters!
