On Saturday, Liz and I went out to Valparaiso to celebrate Julie’s birthday (it really was a weekend of birthday parties). We had dinner plans at a downtown restaurant, but arrived a little early to just visit briefly.

Mind and Body and Mind Again

Midway through the morning, I realized I had become a nerd cliche – a middle aged man, sitting in his parents’ (in-law’s) basement, working on the computer in the dark. It felt like I was killing time, waiting for my friends to come over so we could play Dungeons and Dragons.
