Another Week in California

I'm about to head to sleep. So far, my first trip of the year has gone well. The 9:15 AM flight on Monday wasn't completely packed, so I had an empty seat next to me on the exit row. However, the couple sitting behind me also had two small kids, one who liked to kick the back of the seats, the other who liked to scream as we were landing.

On this trip, Hertz gave me a brand new red Toyota Matrix as my rental car. I really like this vehicle -- lots of room and nice styling. I'm not going to replace my Saturn anytime soon, but if I was in the market, I'd consider this, especially if there was a hybrid version.

Work has gone well; I was there late last night getting some bugs fixed, but I left today about 6:30 and had dinner with former Austinites Alex and Kathryn out at Frankie, Johnnie, and Luigi's, a cool Italian restaurant in Mountain View. I'm back at my hotel room now, and I'm pretty exhausted.

One final note: I'm very glad to see the strong support that Donna Howard got in today's HD48 special election. She almost hit 50%, and I think she's positioned very strong to win the runoff election, something that will put her in a strong position for the primary and general election. I heard her talk at Democracy for Texas, and I think she'll be a strong representative for west Travis County.
