Six years in San Francisco

February 2016 marked six years of me living here in San Francisco. It’s hard to believe that much time has passed, but at the same time I feel so at home in my latest adopted city. I sometimes find myself struggling to remember what it was like to live in the suburbs, drive every day […]

Tourist in Darmstadt

This past week I was in Germany! I’ve gone through Frankfurt many times over the years, but this was the first time I actually left the airport via ground transportation. Trip began with a flight on a Lufthansa 380 Upon arrival I found the bus stop for the shuttle to Darmstadt and after a 20 […]

32nd Birthday in Squaw Valley

On Friday MJ and I left to head toward Tahoe to spend the weekend at The Resort at Squaw Creek to celebrate my 32nd birthday on Sunday. With my still recovering sprained ankle I wasn’t as mobile as I generally like to be for a mountain adventure, but the weather was cooperating for some nice […]

Tourist in the other Portland (Oregon)

After OSCON wrapped up on Friday I took the opportunity of a free afternoon to play the tourist in Portland. It occurred to me as I booked this trip that I managed to visit both Portlands this month, this one had less lobster though. And I will take this opportunity to say that I was […]

My last day in Dublin: Seals, Malahide Castle and drinks!

Finally, my last post about Dublin. I’m happy to report that as I write this post about my last day in Dublin, MJ’s last day has wrapped up and he’s coming home to me tomorrow! Saturday morning we slept in. We had a leisurely lunch on O’Connell Street and at 2PM hopped on a bus […]

Guinness, Jameson and prison (luckily not in that order)

Thursday morning I slept in a bit, because vacations are good for that. But by 11AM I was up and ready to go out, so I grabbed a bagel at a cute little cafe across from Trinity College and then bought a ticket on one of the City Sightseeing buses. Again it was my aunt […]

Birthday zoo visit and waffle

As mentioned in my last post, I took the opportunity on my birthday to take the afternoon off from work and head down to the San Francisco Zoo for a delightful afternoon of animal watching (and even got a Happy Birthday wish from the zoo!). My first stop was to see the meerkats, since I […]

Bitlbee tweeting, heat and SF food

When we picked up our television the other weekend we also took the opportunity to pick up the box we shipped my bike in from PA in and dropped it over at the local bike shop, Pacific Bicycle. Three days later the fantastic staff at Pacific Bikes had Nessy assembled and I was able to […]

Storage, Rogue, Touristing

We bought a couple of in-building storage units a few months back, got them primed in May and did the painting in June and some final touch-ups in July. But eventually we were ready to move everything from our rental storage unit down the street to the ones we have here! Last weekend we rented […]

La Trappe Cafe

While I was down at Noisebridge for their weekly Linux Discussion meeting this week I met another local sysadmin who ended up having some great tips as far as beer in the city. That night I took advantage of one of his tips and MJ and I hopped on a bus down to La Trappe […]
