16 glorious degrees in the middle of November!

For those of you not so up to date on your celcius, it's 61 F here in Tübingen today, the sun is shining, and a light breeze is keeping the smell of autumn fresh in the air!

While I have nothing of great interest to report, life in Tübingen continues to get better and better (although not surprisingly, since I wasn't at all thrilled about being back at all when I arrived a month ago). My classes, both taught and taken, are progressing well and I feel that I am getting better at managing my time with regard to leisure activities, exercise, school, work, and friends.

I do so very much hope that all of your lives are equally fulfilling at the moment.

P.S. Did I mention how much you guys rock at commenting? It's like Christmas every day!

P.P.S. Just a animals were an ever-present feature of Maria and my What's Hot/What's Not list at 259 Bay St, grown ups on scooters will also forever be on this blog's What's Not list. Every couple of weeks I see an adult on a motorless scooter (you know, a board with four wheels and a stick that you steer with) and am overcome with the feeling that it is not only not hot, but downright not right. Take that scooter people!

and just one more thing before I go: Today I learned an important rule for life: wear socks and wool clothing in months that have the letter "r" in them. If that's not a rule to live by then I don't know what is.

But not as great as the Chritmas we will have. If we still had that fiber optic Chritmas tree from Bay Street I would leave you a hundred gift wrapped comments under it. As it is, maybe I'll give you a mandarin (orange).

How do you feel about those two-wheeled motorized devices you stand up to ride? You know the ones I mean, they look like floating lecterns. Hot or not?

Hmmmm . . . good question about the Segways. I'm going to have to side with Sarah on this one: hot. Why? I never saw the ads for these things, but they were obviously silly enough to spawn the hilarious South Park parody that many of you may remember. Furthermore, Gob's use of the Segway truly put the Segway in the history books. Moral of the story: if you haven't seen Arrested Development, go to the video store, rent the first season, and set up camp for the weekend--you won't regret it!
