fall is transitioning into winter and so far it's been a difficult phasing of one image into another. thanksgiving week took away both my grandfather and my dear friend and coffee companion crystal bryant. i've been hating the world; coping with loss is difficult and I'm sorry if i've been particularly cranky or distant lately. not your fault.
we went to texas for thanksgiving to visit my parents' new home. we'd just been in DC for my grandfather's ceremonies, and so i suppose it was helpful to burrow in my mother's overstuffed couches. there's isn't much better than eating expensive cheeses and looking at photos of my family in our earlier, nerdier, california days.
me on the left, sara on the right. that picture was taken here.
sleep creeps is going well. we played at the earl last weekend and i managed to lose a bunch of my own equipment. it's like when you're on your cell phone when you get home from work and you set your keys down in the middle of the conversation. total time warp, no clue where i set that stuff down.
five year anniversary at octane next week. holy crap! I've just about been there for half of its existence. my roommate alyssa has been there for almost all of it. kind of insane. party on friday night if you guys are around. if not, im sure ben will be twittering about it for those of you needing updates.
all in good fun.
(don't worry mom, i didn't steal that picture from your house. i've been holding onto it for forever!)
