My cousin Jessica is getting married on Sunday, so I'm in Florida for the weekend. This is my first time in Florida for several years and my first chance to see many of my relatives for at least as long (for those of you who don't know, my mom's family is from Florida). I just met my step-cousin for the first time in my life, not two hours ago. I think that means that I've now met all of my relatives first cousin and closer (perhaps I should make trading cards?). I've not seen much of the state so far -- just the Tampa and Tallahassee airports and my hotel room -- but it'll be fun exploring and seeing more of the Eastern half of my heritage. I'm going to see the Gulf of Mexico tomorrow for the first time in my life. So exciting!
The other, less happy news is that Jen and I have broken up. It's something that's obviously been pretty hard on the both of us, but I'm not going to say much about it here, since it's not really the kind of thing I want to talk about on my blog. Some of you probably didn't know, though, so I thought it best to at least acknowledge it here. I'll return to my regular schedule of lightly amusing posts in due course.
