Lunch break

I'm back in the land of easily-accessible high-speed internet, taking a quick break during lunch to say that yes, indeed, I am still here.

It's been a busy couple of weeks. I spent 7 days in Acapulco for a conference. Of course, I managed to squeeze in a little pool time. I also ate some yummy tacos al pastor and had some to-die-for azteca soupa. I walked on the beach, and waded up to my knees in the not-so-attractive Pacific Ocean. I even caught a cab to the other end of town to watch the famous cliff divers demonstrate their fortitude, diving as much as 100 feet into what appeared to be a rather shallow ocean surge. Upon my return to Colorado, Keith and I celebrated our 7th anniversary, ran or walk-jogged in the Boulder BOULDER 10K race, and then hosted the second annual big ol' Memorial Day barbecue... all in all, a busy week and a busy weekend.

And today, it's upload time. My research group is in the process of getting ready to upload our instrument onto the C-130. I suppose that the countdown is on: 2 months to the day until I head to Christmas Island for three weeks...

But in the meantime, a taste of my last week and a half. To see the rest of the photos, visit my flickr page.

I wouldn't mind a few days in a lounge chair with a frou-frou drink with a little umbrella....

Sigh.
