Vacationing

Tomorrow we will be leaving for a ski trip sponsored by my research advisor, Craig Carter. For those of you who don’t already know this, I might as well say this now: my advisor’s brother, Chris Carter, is the creator of the X-Files. This means I have 2 degrees of separation with Chris Carter and probably only 3 degrees of separation with much of Hollywood.  Not bad.

Anyway, we will be going to Sunday River, which is a ski resort in Maine. The nearest town is apparently Bethel, ME. I was looking up the area on Google Maps today and I noticed that near Bethel are towns with the creative names: East Bethel, West Bethel, North Bethel, and, my favorite, Northwest Bethel. It’s probably just a matter of time before some disgruntled citizens on the western outskirts of Northwest Bethel secede and form a new municipality: Westnorthwest Bethel.

Anyway, since I won’t be near a computer (or internet connection) for a few days, I won’t be able to make any blog posts until Sunday night at the earliest. I hope you all have a good weekend without me.  If you’re not in the market for a car, I may be able to help you celebrate Presidents’ Day anyway.  I have a bunch of posts I’ve been working on but haven’t finished, so perhaps I’ll get one or two of those done on Presidents’ Day.  And maybe I’ll even have a picture or two to share…

    Not in the market for a car, and Monday is my day off every week…I’m thinking to get dishes and laundry under control. Have fun skiing. I haven’t been in eons.
