Vacation is Over

Today is my first day back in action, I had a wonderful vacation and I’ll be giving the full story out over the next couple of weeks, but here’s the highlights:

We flew out to Michigan about 10 days ago for MarcusMania, the annual family runion. On the way up we missed our connecting flight and met up with two other folks who missed it too, so I rented a car and we all drove up to Traverse City – myself and the lovely Carin, along with one of the curators from the MFA and the manager of a Squash Club downtown – a great random adventure.

A week on the lake was incredibly relaxing, as it always is and we also had a chance to wander around town. I found a really cool new brand called M-22 that I’ll be writing more about, it’s where the cool kids are hanging.

On Thursday it was the return flight to get back in time to see Chris Botti at Tanglewood with the Boston Symphony Orchestra on Friday. Saturday was Carin’s High School Reunion, and then a mad dash off to the Cape at 6:30am on Sunday for the Falmouth Road Race, complete with “Peanut Butter Jelly Time” reference.

Along the way I also stumbled upon Steel Panther, the most offensive 80’s band parody ever. Sadly, I find it one of the funniest things I’ve ever heard (NOTE: Not Safe for Work – your family, your kids, etc. You have been warned!)

Unfortunately vacation got in the way of Podcamp Boston 4, which sounded like a great show, and catching up with people who had come to town for it. Plenty of interesting things going on, but for now I have to dig through the pile that grew while I was sleeping on the dock.
