I'm back, and I quit.
Back from the road trip.. lots of stories, photos, and "things I have measured" coming up next week.
In other news, I decided that I'm going to quit smoking on Monday. I've been pondering the idea for a while, and while I'm reluctant to "publicly" commit to anything, I think it might help me to proclaim a goal. So you can all hold me to it. Other goals include: getting back into cross-country skiing, finding a job, and various multimedia projects that I've started or dreamed up.
And yes, I came up with most of this during the long hours in the car, miles from civilization. Coming back to Chicago last night was weird. Good, but I got so used to being in towns of less than 20,000 people that it was a bit of a shock. And where's all this cold weather everyone's talking about?
