We had a great time in San Jose (3/19-3/23). Paris and I drank innumerable beers with Choo, and of course the highlight of the trip was the "Shark for a Day" fantasy camp at HP Pavilion. There are lots of pictures and videos in the works, which I'll post when I get them all organized.
Then reality began to set in. I got monstrously sick on the flight home Sunday, and when Paris talked me into seeing the doctor on Tuesday, the diagnosis was the flu. Drugs and codeine-flavored cough syrup helped, but here it is a week later and I still feel like a cold turd.
You'd think that being off work for a week would give me time to organize those pictures and videos, but alas, no. The monitor on my laptop went to hell for the last time. I've ordered a new Dell — no more of this fragile Gateway garbage — but it will be a couple of weeks before I'm online in full force again. So you're free to entertain yourselves in the meantime in whatever depraved manner strikes your fancy, as long as it involves beer.
I'll check in when I can.
