Many things have occurred.

- Congratulations to Dr. and Mrs. Aris & Blythe Winger, and a truly hearty "damn good to see you" to them and everyone else I had the pleasure of spending the weekend with.

- It turns out that there's something in the air in Virginia to which I am insanely allergic, but I'm comforted by the fact that I wasn't the only one.

- Just this morning I switched to a new aftershave that's a liquid instead of the balm I've been using for basically forever. Something I'm noticing is that I can smell it on me even now, which is something the old aftershave didn't do. Is this a thing of all liquid aftershaves, or did I put too much on? I don't want to be that guy who exists within a nebular cloud of noxious chemical miasma that everyone hates on the bus, or on BART, or within any reasonably-enclosed public space. I am just a man who shaved some of his face this morning. If you see me, please tell me whether or not I put too much on; I'm not an expert with this kind of aftershave yet.
