this week i

prepped for my close-up.  some peer-reviewed journals nowadays require a photo..

glassy-eyed professional

saucy demon

..and classic hunched.

watched a pretty good movie and then ate a grasshopper taco with britt.

stole up to baltimore.

dressed for diwali.

watched some traditional dance.

met the new president.

ate at hamid karzai's brother's restaurant.

drank some too..

..with unusually good company.

slept in a house of poe.

no longer fear chinese capitalism.  not my favorite alarm clock.

rediscovered reckoning, the grateful dead.  a lot going on.
