You might be wondering what the heck is this new super cool cyber place? I figured it’s time to get with the program, blogs are in, emails are so last-year.
In case you are not familiar with the term “blog”, consider it an interactive online diary. And the great part is you can read my diary and live to see another day even comment! Don’t you wish that’s how it went when I was 13? 😛
The reason I created this blog is to keep in touch with all of you. I’ll be updating you about our lives (or lack-thereof) through this fabulous blog. Of course, you can feel free to still email us. And of course, we will still reply! But when it comes down to general updates, it might be easier to just put it here for everyone to see instead of writing one thing to Chris’ parents, then something else to Jill, then telling my parents something else on the phone, and finally writing something else entirely to my brother on chat. Of course, we will still do all of those things, but I’ll be sure to also post pure boring randomness awesomeness here often so you guys don’t miss a beat!
Now that you’ve been introduced to the blogosphere and more specifically to this blog, let’s get some content, shall we?
First of all, have you seen the picture of the new Tesla S sedan?!

We’re in love (not with each other, with the car!). It is officially our next car, and despite the hefty price tag – it is half the price of the first generation Roadster AND electric and therefore practically pays for itself. And it saves Mother Earth, so there you have it. It’s perfect. Tesla (the name of the company making this car) has opened a store in L.A. and we are planning to visit it on Sunday. It will be a nice excuse to do a little road trip to LA, and it would be great to even just sit in a car in the showroom! I hope they have a model of the sedan. And being a huge fan of Telsa the man* and Tesla the car, I hope they sell something else in the store that I could actually leave with. I’d be happy with a t-shirt.
*(Philippe, remember when we were studying to build a tesla coil!)
In other news, my UCSB winter-quarter yoga class finished a couple of weeks ago and the next quarter doesn’t start for another couple of weeks. Jenny and I, much desperately needing the exercise, decided to try out a yoga class in a “real” yoga studio. Holy cow, what a difference! While the UCSB class is nice and a great stretch for the body, this was a total kick-in-the-face 2 hour workout! I will be sorry tomorrow.
Talking about tomorrow, a friend of ours is having a costumed party – the theme? Knights. Monks, wizards, princesses, jesters, and any other creative interpretations are welcome. We will spend the day tomorrow making our costumes. Chris wants to be a wizard, he has a great idea for making a staff with blinking LED lights on top (anything excuse to use his new electronics skills!) and I made plans for sewing myself a jester costume with some felt I had laying around. We’ll be sure to take pictures!
