Thanksgiving in Atlanta

My wonderful parents came to visit me in Atlanta for Thanksgiving! Lots of walking around: my office in Chamblee, Midtown, the Georgia Institute of Technology, Pemberton Place, Centennial Olympic Park, Piedmont Park, Little Five Points, East Palisades Trail, downtown Decatur, Emory University, and the CDC Roybal Campus. Almost twelve miles on our longest day!

I would have been sadder to say goodbye, but fortunately I'll see them again in less than three weeks for Christmas.

A presumably non-controversial statement

I know everyone's on board with libraries and I don't need to hammer home how not only amazing but also necessary they are, but here's a fun case study: the amazing book Our Bodies & Other Fine Machines by Natalie Wee. Published in 2016, now out of print, $750 on Amazon (+ $3.95 shipping). The DeKalb County library system was able to get me a copy from the King County library system in Washington for $3 and a little bit of patience. Thank you to Natalie Wee and the DeKalb and King County libraries! I will return it on time and unmolested.

I tried making koshari...

...and it turned out pretty okay!!!

Second recipe at this link, although I combined the onions, tomato mixture, and spinach into one, and I did use chickpeas. I also used store bought fried onions and my proportions were different. Still!

Damp and... Sun-kissed?

Tubing on Sunday, Cedar Point (interrupted by rain) today, kayaking tomorrow--I'm going to show up to my first day at my new job looking pretty pink and wrinkled...
