This is my first post from our actual working internet at home. Not shared dial-up, not stolen linksys–actual internet that works. It’s all thanks to Jen, whose epic journey in making this happen you can read about here.

I have Flickr! So far I only have other peoples’ photos of me on it, but I like to think that just means I’m selective. Or that I have an army of staff photographers following me around and taking my picture.

On Friday I leave for Italy–Rome for a few days then Florence. Suggestions on what to do/see are very welcome; I’ve been to Florence a few times but never to Rome.
