Long Overdue...

Haven't updated in quite a while. Been too busy with this being a professor thing. Anyway, here are the latest random pictures.

The first picture is from us moving out of our apartment. This is inside the U-Haul that we inefficiently packed. Luckily, it was a lot faster to unpack the truck. The second picture is from the first weekend after we moved in. We had a nice ice storm in Atlanta which covered everything in a very pretty layer of ice. Unfortunately, it also brought down quite a few branches taking out a good number of power lines (we were not affected by power issues). This picture is a big branch that fell about one or two feet away from my car (which didn't get hit).

Sue's mom moved to Nashville in January just a little bit before we moved into our new house. We drove up one weekend to visit in February. The first picture is from a store window that sold cowboy boots... except I don't know what self-respecting cowboy would wear smiley-face boots. The second is from a lunch counter that apparently sells "Oriental Lunch", which I thought was funny because it just seems so dated. The last picture looks like we're in Greece. I don't know why, but they have a replica of the Parthenon in Nashville.

Finally, I was just in Austin this past week for a conference and to visit Intel folks. My ex-boss is a cheese fanatic, and these are just some pictures from his cheese-refrigerator. He gets all of his cheese shipped from a store in Pittsburg and he tends to order several wheels at a time. Somehow, he got stuck with about a dozen sticks of pepperoni with this last order, too (that's about half of them in the freezer). It's just an impressive amount of cheese.
