T minus 13

Less than two weeks remaining before we leave. Wow!

Today we need to find luggage, go grocery shopping, make pens, schedule a few dinners, find a hotel for my parent's visit this weekend, maybe go out for pizza with my classmates, potentially hear a talk on the past year of Supreme Court cases, clean the apartment, find a glucagon emergency kit, make a list of things to pack, and ... maybe eat breakfast.

Status Report

Oh yeah, I took the California Bar Exam two weeks ago. The process went very well. The results will be out in three and a half months, on November 21st.

DefCon's Network

The most actively hostile network in the world is set up each year at DefCon in Las Vegas. The level of hostility is summarized in this post on Slashdot very well.

T minus 15

We're moving to China in 15 days.

In the mean time, we need to pack clothes, fill a year's worth of prescriptions, find out how to buy insulin and pump supplies in China, put our cars in storage, get traveler's insurance, pack up our apartment, graduate from Law School, finish filling an order for pens, get TESL training, take one final session of marriage counseling, plan a graduation/going away party, spend time with my parents, meet with a seamstress about reconstructing our wedding dress (it got ruined by the dry cleaner), register to vote absentee, figure out what to do with our mail while we're gone, and a bunch of other miscellany.

The days are just packed.
