A quick update (and a plea for local help)

Okay, so I’m good at planning, not so good at followthrough. I’ve actually been more productive in terms of writing than I have been in a long time, but it’s papers for work. Writing long technical treatises on the molecular mechanisms of nucleotidases is a very different kind of writing than the kind of introduction to my work I hoped to do here, so that project lost steam. I did drink most of the beers of the world, and write essays about them, but I hoped to put non-beer-related posts in between them lest you think I devoted my summer to alcoholism. (I did not.)

Anyway, the update is that next Saturday, 19 August, I will be moving across town to what we informally call the Hinton House, next door to Hinton Ave. UMC. I’ll be living with Andrew Marshall, Jimbo Hughes, and Brian Vaughan. The address is:

513 Rialto St. Charlottesville, VA 22902

We also have a land line, but in the interests of some privacy I’d rather not put the number here. I’ll probably be sending out an email to everyone I’ve ever met with complete contact information pretty soon. I will have the same cell number, which I’d like to use as my primary phone.

The plea for help: If you live in Charlottesville, or can be in town next weekend, I would greatly appreciate your help loading and unloading the truck at 2:00 PM on Saturday, 19 August. (Yes, I do know that that is student move-in day, but both the old place and the new place are a few miles away from the University, so I think we can avoid the traffic.) Depending on how many folks show up, I hope we can get everything loaded and unloaded in a few hours, and then we’ll either fire up the grill and have a little picnic or order some pizza, whatever people prefer. If I were mean, I’d also remind you that I’ve helped move many of you over the years, and you owe me. But I’m not mean, so I’m not going to say that. 🙂 If you can help, please send me an email or give me a call on the cell, so that I know you’re coming.

Update at 10:00 AM, 16 Aug: The address is Rialto St., not Rialto Rd. Corrected.
