dispatch from burlington

burlington, vt
(me, trying to find a wireless connection in a parking lot in burlington, vermont)

This post is being dictated to Kathryn as we drive around Burlington, Vermont, looking for wireless (and maybe the coat factory). More later (and maybe from Maine).

Update:
Not from Maine, as it turns out. We didn't make good enough time on the drive through Vermont to justify the detour, especially when I realized it would take us more out of the way than what it looked like from our poorly-printed Mapquest map.

Updated States From Which I've Blogged, included for personal reference even though the list has been recently cited elsewhere as a blogger self-indulgently providing Information No One Else Cares About:

can you really cross a state off the list if you didn't do the actual blogging yourself?

Think, man. Once you're back in Cambridge, you can get to Maine in just an hour or so. There's even a train. And you can wear shorts there!

(Update is a little confusing: Cambridge? up? Typos?)

too bad about Maine. I'm commenting from somewhere outside Dorval, Quebec, on the super awesome train back to Toronto. (the bus from Toronto to Hamilton will be less awesome)

Lucy: Yes, as per Rule 17.3(b), dictated posts count so long as both I and the dictatee are in the state at the time.

Anon, Tina: I skipped Maine partly in optimism that I will manage to get to Maine somehow, someway in the next year or so. I hope this proves correct.

Also, typos have been fixed.

it would be interesting to compare your pattern of 'blogged in vs. not' states to the Red/Blue presidential election map from 2004...

go to texas! hang out with my family. you will like my nephew. and they might let you sleep on the couch. don't stay with my parents, my dad will find you irritating (though my mother will love you). stay with my sister instead.

That train up to Portland is really great — enables daily commuting now. Give it a try.

Go to Maine when the fall foliage is at its peak. And I would say to skip Acadia--I find it a little too touristy.

Go to Maine when the lobster shells are hard. Aw, just go anytime. Maine is a nice place, you'll see.

Jeremy will be going to Texas soon courtesy of GSA. So we know at least one addition to the map is coming in the next few months.

Jeremy, how hard would it be to get yourself invited to give a talk at a school in NC?

eszter -
where in texas will jeremy be going?

Brayden said...

Yes, we definitely need to get you to Utah. My role in the blogger world will be complete if I can help you cross Utah off your list.

jeremy said...

I'm going to Dallas, TX. And I definitely want to go to Utah. If only I could drive from Madison to Utah, I could cross off like eight states that way, throwing down the gauntlet to the devotion of those other states-visited-tracking bloggers out there.
