New Blog, New Goals (or, do you want to come over to our house and build a fort?)

A couple nights ago Truman and I came up with a list of things we want to do in the next know, to celebrate our new (and more fun) post-grad school life. The list ended up getting a little unwieldy but whatever, I'm pretty sure we can two-birds-one-stone this business. You know, like have our neighbors over form some eggplant parm and to build a fort in our living room. I'm sure they will think that was perfectly normal. Good times.
