I'm trying to get better at condensing my trip/visit reports. In case you've been curious, the reason I do this is just to try and fix things in my own mind. (Well, that's the primary reason; I also want to let y'all know what I'm up to.) Our family would go on great vacations when I was a kid, and they had a big impact on me, but I'm stunned by how little I can remember when I try to recall specific vacations. Part of this is because I don't have any photos in front of me, so I'm not able to prompt those memories. Since I never take pictures, I'm a little concerned that ten years from now I'll have absolutely no recollection of all the fun stuff I did right after moving to California.

The flip side, of course, is that if I spend an hour writing about what I did, that's an hour I'm not actually doing something new. So I want to write enough to spin up my mind in the future without necessarily putting down every detail.

So: this past weekend, I flew out to DC for Wade's bachelor party. Wade is getting married the first weekend in December so a group of his high school and college friends went to give him a night on the town. Josh, Nate and I represented from Wheaton North; Dave and Earl (and someone else whose name escapes me but was only there for the beginning) carried the VT banner. I arrived a bit before 5 and met up with the others at the ESPN Zone. We drank huge glasses of beer and watched a variety of televised college football games. Good times.

Oh, right.... it just now occurred to me that we're not supposed to go into a lot of detail about what happens at these things. I guess I'll use code for the rest.
* Went to see the H at the DCI. Nobody went up but it was an awesome S. Best moments were "Booie" and Disneyland.
* Went B-H at AM. Extremely crowded but still fun.
* Returned to an IP for the rest of the night. Nate met an "I" m.
Wow, that made it REALLY short! Cool.


  1. the code is good gossip!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Ah.... good memories about the I at the IP. The H was great too. Great recap, S.
