The Google Cambridge summer party was last Thursday, this time at Six Flags New England. Unfortunately, Julie had an important business meeting the same day and couldn't go. The weather was a bit more rainy than ideal, but at least that meant short lines. Was just dry enough to allow for a fun visit, though, and I did get to ride some steel roller-coasters for the first time. Turns out I don't find the inversions as scary as I'd thought when I was younger, long drops get to me way more than the twisty, loopy elements. Mind Eraser was a blast. Plus I managed to get in an entire book's worth of reading on the bus from the office. Will have to return some time with the whole family.

Yesterday, Scott and Diane (Julie's cousins) were in from out of town for a wedding, and they had some time to drop by for a visit. Erica was a bit shy, but was more outgoing after a long-delayed nap, and we had a wonderful dinner at Loyal Nine. Was great to catch up!

Aside from that, work has been busy, and I've been trying to get a little work in on Mystery Hunt writing. I swore I'd help my team somehow, and January is sooner than you'd think.

Eristic improvements: Climbing up and down from chest-height obstacles, putting together shape-matching puzzles by herself, walking a lot faster, staying up inadvisably late.
