jactrades: Mole from Arrested Development (AD - Busy Day)
So, a bunch of things have occurred since we last talked, internet!

1. I dropped out of [ profile] het_bigbang. *sadface* I probably could have pushed to get my story done by the deadline, but I'll be traveling during that week (on the Pacific NW Roadtrip of Awesome), and would really rather concentrate on having Fun Times than revisions. Plus internet access will be hella iffy - I think we'll be in the uninhabited northeast corner of California on posting day, and at Crater Lake the day before.

However, I still really love this story and will get it finished sooner or later. Preferably sooner so that I can stop hogging all of the library's Berlin Airlift books. (Also, historians, why do you hide all the hilarious stories in the endnotes?)

2. The husband and I went to Outside Lands with a few friends. Outside Lands is SF's music festival, smaller than Coachella, but with much better food. It was Abhi's first music festival, and so fantastically organized and with so many great bands (oh, the scheduling woes of three great bands on three stages at the same time) that I fear I've ruined him for anything else.

long list of who we saw, and more importantly, what we ate )

3. We went to the SF Street Food Festival in the Mission last weekend, and I will not detail even more food again, but it was delish and I love this city and its wack-a-doodle chill folks.

4. If you got all the way through that, then you rock, and should fill out this meme I've genked from all over, especially if you're a new person!

5. There's a five that I forgot! I'm in the process of making a number of mixes for my best friend, who has been temporally transferred from her home in Bangalore to work on a project in England (somewhere... not London). Anyways, we're jogging buddies, and she's been having motivational issues, so I'm pulling together a bunch of fun songs to run to. One mix will be Bollywood, one will be dance/electric, one will be un-ironically awesome pump-it-up songs like Eye of the Tiger, and one will be indie-ish summer-y stuff. And maybe more, depending.

If anyone has song suggestions, they'd be extremely welcome. I'll post the mixes here once I get them all done. I've never really pulled together my running music, so this has been a fun process. (And also needed - see above for all of the nomnomnoming of unhealthy fried food I've been doing of late. But it's so worth it. *still dreaming about funnel cake*)
