July/August Round-up

So here's the thing.  It's not that I am super busy.  I'm not, really.  In fact, I've been incredibly lazy lately!  And it's not that I don't have anything to write about - there are many stories to be told, book reviews to post, and recipes to share!

So I have made a decision to be better about this blog for the rest of the year... which... well, we'll just have to see how that goes. 

Anyway, the summer was fun, you guys!  I did things!

First off, on July 5th, my parents celebrated 37 years of marriage, which is pretty awesome.  Thanks for setting a good example, parents!  Maybe even I will get married one of these days...

In mid July, my third niece was born (!!!!):

Haley Grace

So that was fun!  It was especially fun because I wasn't the one doing the birthing.  

Soon after that precious miracle, Ann Arbor was hit by the precious tornado that is Art Fair:

This is the calm before the storm.  The morning the Fair started.  My building is in the background, and I was walking to work with my fancy coffee.  The next time I looked out of the window, it was mass hysteria. So. Much. Overpriced. "Art."

I saw The Dark Knight Rises:

It was good!
(But version #2 - Heath Ledger Rules All - was better.)

During the first week of August, my work switched from Outlook email to Google mail.  The old-timey professors collectively lost their shit and HILARITY ENSUED, especially since some of them still used PINE.

Ah, freshman year of college...

I turned 32 years old.


And August crawled to the finish line and students moved back to campus, ruining the serenity and calm that accompanies this town in the summer, yet ensuring my employment.

And that is it!  There is nothing more that happened this summer!  TIME FOR SEPTEMBER. GO.

Oh my gosh, PINE?! I totally remember using that in college! Was it really that long ago...?
