Our top-secret mission this weekend was to attend the surprise 30th-birthday party for my dear friend and colleague Mrs. Brown down in Athens, Georgia, where I made my home for 13 years. Along the way, I bumped into many, many old friends, Will made his performance debut at the renowned Flicker Bar, and we both ate ridiculous amounts of pork. I just got back so am quite tired, but I must say once again: Scott, Hilary, Jared, Hillary, Tammy L., Bethie, Jason C., Jason N., Kay, Jim, Joe, Jeff, Andy, Stan, Serra, Ben, Zig, Chris, Henry, Tammy R., and Kirsteen, it was so great to see all of you again!
