Take an Instant Pot.

I am buying an Instant Pot! Subsidized by trivia winnings! Seriously, I looked it up online as soon as I got home and spent almost an hour reading reviews. Yesterday I watched an extremely earnest, kind of adorable Instant Pot YouTube video.

I'm taking vacation at long last, and can rejoin! I know I've met you all at least once, even if it was 2.5 years ago, but it might take me some time to find you in a crowded bar so if you see a bearded guy wearing a hat with a big yellow M on it feel free to grab me.

Grabbed a table to the left of the door in front of the big screen.

Sorry, kids. I'm swamped with work and need to play catchup tonight. I'll be also out for the next couple of weeks for holiday stuff but hope to see y'all in the new year.

We won! This one was a bitch, but we killed it. 28! Next closest was 21. Nice to meet existential dread.

I'll be gone next week myself but back after xmas.

Good luck! We'll crash at your place on our wine tasting tour of Walla Walla.

oh no! Literally drag-racing?

(There was *another* multi-car accident two blocks kittycorner the other way. Did we get out just after the roads frosted?)

I think that might have been the same guy. Apparently he drove off on three wheels after crushing my car and taking out a power pole. Luckily I could just catch the 40 and get home, after two hours out in the cold waiting for the tow truck.

It was great to see you all again and also win.

Why Thucydides Still Matters

If you swing by, due to wine tasting, exploration, escaping the inevitable explosion of Mt. Rainier, et al., hit me up.

I wish I could have caught you on your last night in, the man of twists and turns. Another time, I hope!

Update: State Farm has declared my car an "obvious total loss," what with the bent frame sticking through the remnants of the rear bumper, and now we have a minivan.
