39. Rest and Relaxation

Fig. 39-1: Overview of the Uncontrolled Research Environment

You know that calm, relaxed, and contented look that people have after spending extended amounts of time on the beach? After a recent five day stretch of hands-on research conducted between Om Beach, Half Moon Bay, and Paradise Beach on the shores of the Arabian Sea just outside of Gokarna, I’m beginning to think that these hallmarks of well-tanned people are simply a combination of sunstroke, complete physical inactivity, and a near-complete lack of mental stimulation.

As the saying goes: "Those who can, do."

Fig. 39-2: A tan Louis-Philippe suspiciously looks away from a book for fear that stimulating information might harsh his vibe. He instead concentrates on a bottle of water, which promises to provoke no thought.

This blog fascinates me, and yet I have no idea who you people are or what you're doing. I don't know what that means.

Brooke is all about it! Yes. Hey, Nick, it's time to come home and figure your shit out. We need to talk.

Twins v. Brewers June 25th.

My sorry-for-taking-so-long responses to the above comments, in order, would have to be: "Hello," "Okay," and "I'll see you in the cheap seats." The order here is only important because, while the first and second responses are more or less interchangeable, responding to the first comment with the third reply would just come off as weird .

So, to elaborate:
B.Alec  , while I don't know what of my shit so urgently needs figuring out, I have been looking for someone to figure my shit out for me for years, so if you're offering, then I'm taking you up on it. Perhaps we can talk about it over a Twins-Brewers game in Milwaukee? And ARRON, even if I wasn't already planning to be home by then—which, as it happens, I am—I would come home specially for a trip to Wisconsin like that. Likewise, Brooke: thanks for finding this blog, and if you're not up to anything on June 25th, perhaps it could be the perfect time to put all of the pieces together, while at the same time partaking of beer, hotdogs, and the Great American Pastime—drinking beer in Wisconsin, that is.

Hey, check it out—I did end up using the third reply to respond to the first comment! He Gu myself? He Gu someone, anyway.

No shit guys: I was planning on getting a bunch of people together for that game to celebrate my 26th. Shall we merge plans?
