Vicarious Travel Log #2: July 19 – 25, 2010

Worth 90+ minutes of your life

I got a Measles-Mumps-Rubella booster shot today (fun!) to make sure all my immunizations are up to date, then came home, played stick-tug-of-war in the park with the dog (I won!), ate lunch, and skyped with my parents who have (inadvertently – according to them, their sat-nav doesn’t indicate European borders) wound up in the [...]
