Vacation Notations

In the last ten days, I:

went to an Indian wedding with James (here we are being cool);

climbed a mountain (Half Dome in Yosemite National Park, behind me);

hung out with my awesome family (this is me; Angela, my cousin Bruce's girlfriend; my sister Melissa and brother-in-law Joe; and said cousin Bruce on Half Dome, showing our guns. My parents and James were below);

and saw Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix in IMAX and partly in 3-D (and I liked the movie a lot -- as opposed to Transformers, which we saw to satisfy the eight-year-old boy in James, as well as the adult video-effects geek: "Optimus Prime has 64,000 moving parts!").

Hurrah for vacation!
