WHAT? Where did the summer go?

Cripes! It's October! When did that happen?

So, the headlines are that we went on our honeymoon to Europe, and that I've successfully helped to open a school in New York City.

For the former, I will force you to wait, breath abated, a while longer. We took, literally, thousands of photos over the course of 40 days touring through France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, the Czech Republic, Austria, Italy, Ireland, and England. We have them, we have looked at them, but it will be a herculean task to post and caption them all. So, likely what I will do is make a cute little blog post here about each, say, city we spent time in, with the best pictures. If you want to see all of them, you'll have to come visit us and sit in front of our computer for a few hours.

We also have videos! I'll be uploading them to youtube starting.... now. (Uploading videos to youtube is distressingly slow for some reason. I will let you know when they're done.)

For more immediate satisfaction, you can go check out my school's website, which has some pictures of our opening day. It's at www.academyofthecity.org. Many of our students come from the Queensbridge and Ravenswood housing projects. The work is challenging, and it's very time-consuming, but it's a fantastic feeling to see these kids learning.

All's well in New York. Katie has started doing yoga, and she loves it. I have re-attached the World of Warcraft drip to my screaming, yearning, begging vein, but with significantly increased moderation this time around. The days are darker, the highs are lower. There's been a protest happening downtown for going on two weeks now, that the media is only now beginning to pay attention to.

I made Katie watch The Road and I Am Legend. I have to stop putting such strain on my marriage.

Have some fun links to give you, going back to May of this year. Ah, well.

I was wondering a while ago if dogs are really color-blind, or if it's one of those things that people just believe for no good reason. Answer: the second one. TL;DR*: Dogs can see colors, just fewer of them. If you want to be mean to your dog, throw a red ball on green grass. If you want to be nice, use a blue ball.

I like OK Go, so here's one of their videos.


I wish I was a person who had the amount of free time I had about a year and a half ago.
Wait, no I don't. The reason I had free time was because I was barely working. That sucked.
Anyway, if I could work _and_ have free time, I would spend lots and lots and lots of time on this website. And I would also waste buckets and buckets of paper.

Another, for all intents and purposes, infinite time-waster, is the World's Biggest Pac-Man. I understand that people are creating new boards faster than a person could possibly finish them. Which boggles the mind.

Here's a video of a little girl making a choice. A choice she is immediately told is wrong.

If that's the case, then I don't wanna be right.

And finally, a good investment of about an hour is to watch some very funny and dated news clips dedicated to technology. My favorite is watching Bryant Gumbel and Katie Couric trying to figure out what an @-sign is.

I've also discovered Reddit, which is now my default go-to-when-I-have-30-spare-seconds website.
I used to go to Wikipedia during those decaseconds. Have I gotten dumber? Or smarter? Or.... something elser?

That is all for now, I'm going to spend some time uploading videos for you. More to follow.

Now fuck off.

Love, Adam
Like a boss.
