Where did Oct Go?

Seriously. Wow. Two months with no update? Yeah, I know, you guys have been disappointed with that (judging from some phone calls and emails) since I disappeared. So what’s been going on?

Of course, I have a general policy not to blog about work, with the general exception of broaching vague summaries such as “busy” or “good.” And I’m not goig to change that now, but I will say this: working for Google rocks. It seems like they really value the employees, and everyone from engineer to exec seems to really buy in to the various phrases associated with Google (e.g., “Don’t be evil”), unlike other companies that just give such things lip service for the PR machine. There’s absolutely tons to learn and do here, so I’m really excited.

But, I only started just over a month ago, so what else has been going on? Ok, rewind, and let the snapshots do the talking….

And Nae and I went to Seattle for a week for a whole slew of reasons: Andrew’s wedding, hang out with Matt and Lindsay, and see some friends and family.

Nae and I took one of those tours of the old underground Seattle. (Touristy but pretty cool to be down there.)
