List of Things to Never Leave the House Without

This weekend, when visiting Wellesley and Boston, Jess decided to go puddle jumping and get her socks wet. This resulted in her taking them off before we went apartment hunting, which led to her getting a blister on the back of her foot, which in turn led to her walking on the heels of her shoes which seems to have led her to having a broken toe.

As a result, I'm starting a list of things to never leave the house without.
  • Dry Socks
  • $20 Cash

The $20 cash is something that I started doing a while ago in our cars: I had to run a toll once because I had no money. Since then, I've kept a $20 hidden somewhere in the cars I'm driving whenever possible.

Also, I got my bike today! It's the one thing that I've never been able to get out here, and my parents shipped it to me! It's a 1998 GT Talera, and I love it, and I've missed it. My dad included detailed instructions on how to put all the parts together. I put it all together myself! It's sad that I could hear the voice of my brother mocking me in my head because I wasn't turning the reverse threaded pedal the right way... *sigh* It's been three years since I've lived with my family, and I can still imagine their incessant teasing.

Still, I'm totally looking forward to riding the bike around. I've missed having my bike. Jess's was fine, but is a major difference in riding. (I also need to tune it, after having ridden it last summer without ever touching it.)

Life is pretty decent right now. I did a nifty demo using vnc2swf earlier. Maybe I'll post more about that later. It's work related, so I kind of want to get their permission first.

If you have a list of things that you don't leave the house without, help add to mine!

  • sigh, humans

    For the last 36 hours, I have been unreasonably upset by the simplest, stupidest things that people do. Why can't people just be more smart and less…
