going coastal

Just as the frost is leaving the ground here and the sun is starting to make things feel like actual spring, we are packing up to head to the wet coast. Despite our best efforts, we have found that continually refreshing the weather app does not keep the forecast from deteriorating. Evidently we are in for a solid run of cool rain.

But we aren't necessarily there for the weather. Watching the Offspring receive her degree and shouting she doesn't even go here! from the stands will keep us plenty busy enough. I am also told there will be cake. A peace offering, no doubt, to the assembly of proud parents who have spent a small fortune at this institute of higher learning.
Also on the agenda, dinner with friends, a Vancouver/Seattle grudge match soccer game (at which I am told there will be a chance to sample Vikram Vij's stadium food), a group sushi lunch with friends, and not nearly enough time to hang out with the (now graduated) Offspring.

Catch you on the flippety-flip!

Pass along our hearty congratulations. And if you wouldn't mind using flag semaphore, that'd be great. Make it real hearty.

The flag semaphore was an excellent suggestion, John! The people behind us in the hall were particularly impressed with my signalling skills.
