My friend in Pakistan thinks 10 million people read my blog. Somehow I don’t think so, but I did get a lot of email asking if I were dead. I also discovered that my parents keep track of me via my blog and called the day of the London bombings asking if I was in London. So I hopefully will keep the blog up to date. So where have I been?
July was a busy month.
First there was the Tour de France. Enough said.
The gang then traveled over to Ohio to visit the whole crew over the July 4th Holiday. Jack brought us all out Lance Armstrong “LiveStrong” wristbands. I know that you hate Lance Billy but that is just because your coach, Greg Lemond, is jealous. We are wearing them for Michelle, our close friend who is being very brave and faces cancer (and surgery on August 11th).
After the Ohio gang threw us out, we traveled down to Savannah, Georgia for a while to visit Jimmy on leave from his duties in Iraq. Jimmy is a LT and leads a mission every day, takes small arms fire and faces car bombs. We got the inside scoop on what is really happening over there. He looks well and headed back and will be home in January from his tour of duty.
Next flew in Lara and we made it official, she is a member of the inner circle of the anti-suckieness club by performing the ritual on 4 continents in the calendar year. Inner members are now at: Malek, Goksin, Clemens, Stephen, Kathleen, Kimberly and Lara. (I think Alex and Adam qualify?) We took her around to the MOMA and the Circle Line. Any of my friends from Pakistan, Egypt, Algeria, Morocco, etc who come visit me in New York, I will take you to the MOMA and the Circle Line (and maybe to the top of the Empire State Building).
After a disappointing Mets game and some beach weekends, I am finally back into the swing of things. Work has been crazy but I am now back from the black hole.
Off to China in 2 weeks, lots of photos of course will be posted.
