2014 Timeline

A smattering of events from 2014

January:
  • We had 15 of Rebecca's family from her mother's side over for a holiday dinner.
  • I released v0.1.0 of Auricle which quizzed you on music notation, and then I never worked on it again.
  • It rained, snowed, or iced over almost every other day, destroying the fan motor on my heat pump.
February:
  • It snowed a million times and the Winter Olympics had too many speed skating events.
  • We partied with the Miricks for the first time in forever, at a 222 Reunion gathering (on 2/15 because 2/22 was booked).
  • Rebecca got her first iPhone.
  • I got food poisoning and mostly died.
March:
  • We ate bacon for Marv's birthday at a giant McMansion in Arlington.
  • We tried Bonchon for the first time and Rebecca ate all of the super spicy wings without hesitation.
  • We went to Delmarva's Taphouse for one of the last visits before they were closed for tax evasion.
April:
  • We went to the Greenbrier Resort and were confused by modern slot machines.
  • I made my own badminton net.
  • I finished my first Coursera class, which was somewhere between "bad" and "not good".
May:
  • We planted some more tomatoes, which quickly overshadowed a useless pepper plant.
  • Rebecca went to Columbus for a weekend while I played ultimate frisbee.
  • We had our first of two barbeques for the year.
June:
  • We went to Taste of Reston with child-free Kathy.
  • Rebecca had a birthday dinner with Asian Fusion Pork.
  • Rebecca went to yoga camp in Massachusetts, and then we met to go camping in Pennsylvania.
July:
  • We finally saw Anna's parents again in Colonial Beach.
  • We took out a second mortgage to eat tapas at Mokomandy with Marc.
  • I tried out Wildstar, which didn't last.
August:
  • We had a barbeque with the Newdorfs and Ahlbins.
  • We saw Jim Gaffigan at Wolf Trap.
  • Rebecca got a new laptop to replace the one made out of stone.
September:
  • We went to Beach Week in Kill Devil Hills with the Jacksons and many others.
  • I arranged Tenting Tonight for brass quintet.
  • Rebecca went to Ocean City with the girls, and I taught the Ahlbins how to play Gloom.
October:
  • I lost my FitBit in Harper's Ferry, on the occasion of our fifth anniversary.
  • We played a weird German boardgame at the Smiths.
  • We took a whirlwind tour of Seattle and its environs.
November:
  • Mike of (Mike and Ghost Chompy) came out to visit us from the West.
  • We learned how to play Dungeons and Dragons.
  • We had one fake Thanksgiving and two real ones.
  • I started playing the trumpet again for about 15 minutes a day (so more than most undergraduate music ed majors).
