Day 181, Hipsters: I got into a long, involved conversation with my boss about Molson and the genius that was twin labels. I snapped this picture of my (stolen!) pint glass to prove a point.
Day 1085, Clogs: Dan brought over some Eastern European beers from his recent road trip. Then I went downtown to spend the night with friends, as I’d sold my bed. My friends’ guest bedroom overlooks the train bridge.
Day 1078, Clogs: I had a sort of apartment sale/get-together. Many friends had claimed particular items of mine and I made notes of who was getting what. Some people came over to claim their things, do a little window shopping (more on that another time) for other stuff, and hang out. We ate and drank many things in my fridge, which was another goal. Here you see the before and after photos of the area I’d designated for pre-claimed items. I’m sorry, this is probably really boring, but you’ll get these for a few more days.
Day 1069, Clogs: My various cabinets have many ingredients that need to be dealt with before I go. I think some things will get regifted. Are YOU interested in receiving anything in particular? (This offer is only valid for locals.)
Day 1065, Clogs: Brace yourself for a bunch of lame, quotidian photos. Life can’t all be street art and travel, allegedly. Some of my kitchenware has seen better days and will soon go to new homes.
Day 1062, Clogs: The conference included an outdoor reception for an annual prize, awarded to a cognitive scientist who has made an outstanding lifetime achievement in the field.
Day 134, Hipsters: One of my employees is leaving to go to graduate school (sad face!) so to wish her well on her way, we went to lunch and for some frozen yogurt. I really liked the wall at the frozen yogurt place!
Day 995, Clogs: We spent the day cooped up inside catching up on various tv shows and enjoying nice beers I’ve been saving for just such an occasion.
Day 988, Clogs: The annual Nijmegen Beer Festival isn’t big or amazing, but it’s growing. And, this year, Dave & Kat had come to town in time for it! A surprisingly large number of my friends were also interested in checking it out, so we had our own good sized crowd.
Day 983, Clogs: More Gaudi today, with a visit to Sagrada Familia (tip: buy tickets online & pick them up from a variety of ATMs(!!!) in town) and walk-by visits to houses including Casa Milà, shown above. Sagrada Familia is fascinating and worth much contemplation and research.
