I changed the template on the blog and shifted things around a little bit, pretty much a waste of time since I post so infrequently these days. I'm killing some time at home until next week, when I head up to Microsoft Research in Redmond for the summer. I'm pretty psyched about the summer; I'm going to have great friends and roommates, and it looks like there will be lots of fun stuff to do in Seattle, including the Seattle International Film Festival, the Seattle Symphony (Rite of Spring and Mahler 5), and the Seattle Opera (Lohengrin in August). I'll also be making weekend trips to Berkeley, Vegas, and possibly Boston. And of course, hopefully there will be movies, drinking, basketball, outdoors stuff...oh, and a fun research project too :).
My bro is off to join Peace Corps in a couple weeks. He'll be spending two years in El Salvador. It sounds like tough work, but I'm sure he's up for it, and that it will be a fantastic experience.
There's only one episode of Sopranos left before another long hiatus. Overall, it's been a great season I think. Livia was such a fantastic character and a driving force in the show in Seasons 1 and 2 that I doubt it will ever reach that level again. But, there's still enough goodness left that I'll miss the slow a lot once the season ends. A new season of Six Feet Under will start afterward, but it's just not as good.
