As Ana_ñ pointed out (and a good thing, because I’d have forgotten), today is my two-year blogiversary! Hard to believe it’s been that long already. WordPress sent out the annual reports last week, and in 2011 this blog had 99,000 visitors. That’s a lot of wonderfully geeky people, many of whom wrote thought-provoking comments that make this blog so much more than I could make it alone. Thank you!
In other happy news, I’ve recently learned that I’m going back to Oregon this year. It wasn’t planned until next year, but circumstances shifted and so I’m going alone, leaving my poor wife to hold down the Portuguese fort without me. (She says there will be nightly raves and probably orgies while I’m gone. But I’ll get to eat Mexican food, so I’m still coming out ahead.)
No matter how much I’ve learned to love Portugal, the knowledge that I’m going to Oregon flips some sort of switch inside me. I am suddenly missing the hell out of my home state. So today’s wallpaper is a scene I’m looking forward to seeing again: the Three Sisters, seen from the eastern side.
