Today, I am writing from the beautiful city of Mountain View, California, home of Google and Mozilla. I drove down last night to visit my very good Foreign American friend, Fred. It was a long trip, but totally worth it. Today will be spent catching up on things with Fred, whom I haven’t seen since September. Tonight will be spent catching up on some liquid bread. Tomorrow we’ll probably see if we can’t find something to do in San Francisco. Right now, while Fred is diligently coding away at work, I’m shamelessly raiding his kitchen and watching HBO on digital cable. It sure is great to get away for a while!
