    Thanksgiving

    Played hooky this morning to go to a big farm stand/garden shop. It felt like Idlewild and other places I grew up around. Sadly, the strawberry crop was small this year, so the advertised pick-your-own wasn't happening, but there were strawberries and ice cream on waffles, a petting zoo, and friends to convince me that it was the right opportunity to start a windowsill herb garden.

    Hey San Francisco People
    On my departure from Seattle, I'll be in your wonderful city from the afternoon of Saturday, July 4 through the afternoon of Wednesday, July 8.  I don't have anything solid on my dance card yet, and so am actively seeking suggestions (and a sense of who'll be around so I can make sure to see everyone :-) )

    Hey Seattle People
    I will be attending a conference  in your fine city from June 28 to July 1, and then staying through the morning of July 4. I know I'll be seeing some of you at the VNV concert, but there should be more adventures (or oven-chars, as is your preference).  lakmiseiru  and I are getting tickets for the Friday, July 3 8pm Underground/Underworld tour (the uncensored version of the tour, http://www.undergroundtour.com/underworld/index.html). You should join us.

    Other adventuring suggestions are highly encouraged.

    With my housemates leaving the country or getting married, I've got two rooms open in my house:

    Research
    I'm giving a seminar talk (with cookies!) on Wednesday at 4:30 in NSH 1507.  It's on my thesis research, which offers a new perspective on how locomotion works and points out that coordinate choice really does matter. I'm shooting for the main flow of the talk to be understandable at a basic (engineering) vector calculus level, with bonus insights if you've seen some differential geometry.

    Gilbert and Sullivan trip
    I'm planning to go see the Pittsburgh Savoyards production of Iolanthe next month. Anyone interested in coming along?

    My housemate Greg and I hosted a Thanksgiving dinner, for work-friends from the lab and hospital.

    From right to left, onion cornbread, sweet potato (contributed by a guest), turkey, rosemary-chive red potatoes, crisped green beans, stuffing, and onions in cheddar-cream sauce.

    Thanksgiving in Pittsburgh
    I'm figuring out food for Thanksgiving.  If you'd care to join us (or are still deciding), please let me know so I can update my estimates of necessary foodage.

    Housing
    Keeping the word out that I'm in the market for a new place to live.  Key features are onsite laundry, bike storage, and grocery store proximity.  I'm very happy in Friendship, but would consider Bloomfield, Squirrel Hill, or Point Breeze as well.

    If we found a big place, one of my current housemates is looking partly in conjunction with me.

    Housing
    I just learned that my landlords are starting a family, and are planning to renovate the house into a one-family.  This means that I'm looking for new housing in July.  Anyone else looking?

    Key features I'm interested in are laundry in the building, and either some kind of garage space or a basement at or close to ground level.  I'm fairly partial to the Friendship/Bloomfield region, but that's negotiable.

    What'd be really awesome is if I could round up a few people to try the warehouse/loft thing, with lots of project/common space...

    Anyone around Cambridge on the 21st?
    I'll be getting into Logan on Friday morning, and I'm strongly considering hanging out in Cambridge or the surrounds for the day before heading out to family in the suburbs.  Anyone going to be around then, and free?

    Bike ride
    First (loaded) century of the season complete.  100.something miles, centered on the Montour trail.

    Stickers
    I'm looking to sticker up my winter/lockup bike to make it look less new than it is. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find any bumper stickers up to the caliber of those at Pandemonium. Anyone in BosCamberVille want to send me a selection? I'll pay for one or two for you, or buy you lunch next time I'm in town.
