Bohemian Rhapsody and Piano Man are the worst choices. people don't realize piano man is like 50 billion verses long and they don't know them.

you're telling me! 10 months is both a long and short time, especially in the policymaking world.

i'm really looking forward to the trip (minus the heat and I already know Croatia is gonna be a clusterfuck of tourists lol). my mom and i were commenting on how nice it is to travel w/ each other now as adults. and my dad is driving so that'll be fun too. he was telling me that on his Hippie Trail Adventure, he tried to go to Albania but couldn't. and i told him that i learned that nobody could get in or out under Enver Hoxha's Communist rule, so it'll be neat to show him all the neat Communist history stuff that was happening when he couldn't get in.

and by neat Communist history I mean a shit load of bunkers (173,000+)

Super into this! I'm very pro being barefoot and I admire you for toughening your feet up that much... among other things like having beaten a world record or something

one of my best friends when i was a kid is half slovenian and half croatian and introduced me to potica so i hunted it down while there. their layer cake too is top notch.

it's my 2nd trip. really pretty place, tasty food.

sorry that was kinda unclear -- i found it on craigslist at DC and had Topher pick it up. and it was free.

all the cool kids use subheadings

Kosovo

Just when I got comfy with the idea of leaving and only looking back fondly, I met and clicked with an academic who wants me to write an article on the policymaking environment for an upcoming book. I said something about having already bought a ticket home being my reasoning for solidly leaving, and he said something about it being simple to find the funds to keep me here... not sure if he meant in terms of just a plane ticket or something to live on. Not so sure about sticking around, but I'm gonna write the article and it can definitely be done remotely. I'd really like to go home haha

Things Done

My 2 research interns (yeah weird to think about having interns... I'm not so far removed from being an intern myself lol) presented some killer work that I assisted them with and they'll be graduating next week pending my evaluations.

Acquired while overseas a beautiful Ethan Allen set of chests of drawers and tables and stuff... FO FREE.

Upcoming

Ditching work to go wine tasting in the South tomorrow. Going to Ljubljana again but this time as a work thing. Going to Berlin for 5 days shortly after that.

then it'll be July which means the end is nigh!

sure i'll bite. it's part of a network of traits that contribute to a social hierarchy.

who do you suggest makes up the so called spook state?
