Back in the bay area. Alaska was awesome. I managed to not open my laptop the entire trip (though I cheated and read some email on the Blackberry) which led to a lack of blogging. For most of you this is a welcome respite.
Alaska was nice though. The weather was so-so, kind of cold for June, but summer in Alaska is unbelievable. The night we got in we landed at 1am or so and by the time I was getting ready for bed at 3:30am the sun was coming back up.
Did some hiking and hit up some of my favorite food spots. Got pretty hyphy on Friday night at the Avenue between whiskey shots and PBR despite the fact that I picked up a pretty serious cold on my third day in Anchorage. I am past the excruciating pain that was in my throat and now I am just hacking up phlegm from the depths of my lungs. My coworkers are going to be pretty pumped. The person sitting across from me on the shuttle is probably going to slather his face in hand sanitizer - speaking of which, bad idea, it burns the eyes.
Two good things happening in the world of sports. The Celtics are two games up on the hated Lakers. The Giants, poor as they may be, are in third place in the division with a chance to sweep the Nationals today. Yeah, its the Nationals, so what, we could use the shot in the arm.
OK, close to work at this point. Enjoy your week.
