I’m downtown this afternoon. I am going to work a college fair this evening to help represent the University of Miami. I came down early to have a snack before the 3-hour shift. While on the train ride down, Emil texted how I was doing. This was my response: Productive/happy, the complimented, then yelled at, […]
We didn’t do much with/at #SXSW this year. We did make plans to and attended #gdgt. That was the same day as Circle Brewing’s birthday party. So we had beer (well, our friends and I had beer) and then took the train from there to downtown. On the way there, we stopped at Manuel’s Cuban […]
Emil and several of our #childfree friends have late-November through early-December birthdays: Kelly, Jeff, Emil, Judy, and Ryan. So, we made a huge weekend out of it for all of them. Friday, Jeff, Judy, Emil, and I went for Thai lunch in Cedar Park on our way to Flat Creek Estate winery. We had the […]

We bought soap nuts (reusable laundry soap!), black quinoa, hydroponic romaine lettuce, […]

Emil, or Genius from this point forward, had the perfect idea. We have a Romeo & […]

I’ll try to grab some pictures when we get them installed. We sold the washer and dryer to some friends. They have had their house back since 1-Feb, […]
Ack! 2012 has started off with a bang. This must be what runners and racers feel all the time….except we are sprinting through January instead of December. So, here’s a collective update. The Move Last year, our rent went up almost 10% and added some fees, too. We knew it would happen again (we heard […]
Last week, our Internet speed was inconsistent, and we ended up with a tech call to have the problems investigated. While the tech worked on lines and such, we chatted. He’s lived in New York and hasn’t been in Austin all that long. At one point, he was telling me about living in “this little […]
One year ago we found out we were moving to Austin!
Terrible event. Terrible experience with a staff member. No longer a fan of Spring Condominiums.
