This Week…

Had a couple of bits of excellent news this week…

The first one was that my ex-girlfriend Jessica both successfully accomplished her first day working as a substitute teacher since getting her California teaching credential at the end of last year, and also landed a sweet 3-month teaching job at a school in the South Bay that will kick-start her teaching career and open up lots of options for the future.

The second excellent bit of news is that my oldest friend Johnny D. (we’ve known each other for 30 years) proposed to his girlfriend Emily while snowboarding for the first time in Japan — nice one geezer!

The week was rounded off nicely when another old friend (of 22 years) Andrew came up from Washington DC to spend a boozy weekend with me in New York, including a fun 30th birthday party in my neighbourhood in Brooklyn for my colleague Barbara.

The only fly in the ointment was that I lost my shiny new Canon digital camera somewhere in Manhattan early on saturday morning whilst Andrew & I were out having fun in Manhattan. I only bought it last May, and it cost over $400. Doh! Anyone that knows me will also know that this is not the first time I’ve lost an expensive camera; in fact, I seem to do it with depressingly predictable regularity.
