Another Audition Date in Trichotomy

Left Behind in Trichotomy

Get a hint La Prof went upstate for the funeral of her maid of honor’s mom. I stayed behind because of the rabbit, and because I was scheduled to host a recital. The recital concert was surpris...

Year-end Survey 2023 in Trichotomy

1. What did you do in 2023 that you’d never done before? Set foot in Antarctica. Snorkle. Run a concert series. See an orange sky. Visit the Statue of Liberty. 2. Did you achieve your goals for ...


We had a reasonable disembarkation time of 8:15am, so I woke up at 7, which is not earlier than during the cruise, to get ready. The flight was at 2:20pm, so we anticipated spending 4 hours at th...


This was the last full day of our cruise, and there was rain forecasted in the afternoon, so we decided to stay in after one excursion and take the whole afternoon to pack. The morning excursion...


This morning we went on an “organised” tour at Sentry Hill. It has a zip line, called the “Flying Dutchman”, which sends you from a hilltop - highest point in the island - down to the port. You g...


We went with the included tour for today because we read great reviews about it. The tour did not disappoint. It took us to Blockhouse Fort, which has a nice view of the island, and then to Shirl...


This is the 7th day of our cruise, and we have turned back north and west. We decided to skip the bus tour we’d booked in the morning because we are lazy and it also didn’t sound that interesting...


We spent the morning doing the most touristy thing possible: we went to the CopaCabana beach at Carlisle bay. It was a nice and relaxing beach morning; what vacations normally are. Just lounged o...


We didn’t spend any time in Castries itself because we went on an all-day excursion to Soufriere bay. We were in a group of about 60 (including the onboard cellist, who now acted as the escort). ...


Our excursion today was at a more reasonable hour of 8:15am, so I got to wake up at 7am to get some light breakfast before heading out. The excursion itself was very sedentary; we rode on a catam...


I woke up early this morning at 6:30am to get some breakfast before our 7:30am excursion to Virgin Gorda. The first thing I noticed about Road Town is the group of Frigate bird and pelicans aroun...


I was still having some stomach issues in the morning, so had a light breakfast. But we slept very well. La Professeure secured a walking tour of Old San Juan for us in the afternoon, so we had t...


When my in-laws arrived on the Sunday before, I was already half-packed, partly because I wanted to clear out some closet space for them. By Monday night, I had already packed my checked luggage,...


In Love La Professeure’s sister-in-law’s father, who lives 20 minutes away from us, has had a case of dementia since last Thanksgiving. The doctor discovered a tumor in his brain, removed it by ...

The Expectations Game in Trichotomy

Jaded When Rabbits are happy, they hop straight up into the air and zip around. It’s their version of dogs’ zoomies. Our rabbit used to do that on a daily basis. However, lately La Professeure a...

Novelty in Trichotomy

Montauk We took half of a week off to go to Montauk three weeks ago. This would be our summer trip, and the first time we visited. On the first day we arrived early, so we had time to tour the ...

Real Estate Dramas in Trichotomy

Afford to be picky So far, house prices are high, and the ones that fall in our price range all have some issue with it. We often wonder to ourselves what the homeowners were thinking putting in...


Maybe you should stop I played Mozart at the last amateur group’s recital without having paid a lot of attention to preparing for it. I didn’t feel the pressure of playing a concert, as a result...


Kids these days The rabbit is now always asking for treats. He nudges us to get attention and tries to get behind the desk in the office. In general he is very patient but he has been known to t...


3 years on It was a little bit more than three years that we began our lockdown. We’re not quite back to pre-pandemic behaviour still - and I don’t think we ever will, or should, but I don’t thi...
