I met this nice woman in the airport on her to way to Kazakhstan. She was making conversation about the ridiculous lines so I chatted her up.
"Kazakhstan? Wow... so, like peace corps or what?"
"Cool, so what do you do?"
"I'm an engineer."
"Oh, like a mechanical engineer or chemi--"
I guess she lives on this little compound over there half the year, and then in San Fran the other half of the year. She kind of had this tick where she was perpetually clearing her throat.
She totally got put through the sniffer by security and then they searched her bags. I'm guessing it was because she was headed to Kazakhstan.
I saw half the Golden Gate, small sections of the Bay Bridge, and then the towers of the Golden Gate again in the plane... and the parts I didn't see were obscured by the ubiquitous fog. A beautiful young girl in a classic Mercedez paced my car to exchange glances and smiles as I was cutting through the city just before the Golden Gate. That was a nice welcome.
I had an amazing time at my brother's wedding. I promise to catch anyone interested up on the redwoods I saw and the wedding festivities in more detail when I have a chance. Napa was lovely. Good times were had by all.
My brother and new sister-in-law are off to Bora Bora for their honeymoon. Some people thought he was kidding, because who would take their new bride to Afghanistan. An understandable mistake.
Zach quote of the day, in response to "who is she?"
"Some girl I made out with awhile ago... "
Zach, you're a classy man.
A classy, classy man.
