Came back from Seattle yesterday after work via the train. Comfortable, pleasant ride that was only half an hour behind schedule. Had a nice weekend with , then , as well as attending ‘s birthday party, as documented by here. (Which reminds me, I need to get the photos from .) Played network and systems engineer at ‘s house, then saw her attack a welcome burst of productivity. Somehow, with all that, also managed a lovely dinner with my friend H—, who kindly transported me from the train station at this end of things.
