This past weekend was the only weekend in my one and a half week break between the end of Spring Semester and the beginning of Summer classes. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. My wife was encouraging me to relax and have a good time. I was thinking about doing some heavy reading and trying to get ahead on the books assigned on the syllabus for my first summer class.
I never did get around to that, mostly because I decided to migrate my blog from Blogger to WordPress. It’s taking a lot more time to complete than I thought. The import was a little complicated. I had to export from Blogger, import to WordPress.com, export from WordPress.com, and then import to my WordPress installation. Needless to say, there are tons of formatting errors, not the least of which is that images are either really blurry or not loading at all, depending on the browser. I have to fix that. I’ve been working on getting the categories and tags set up first though. Maybe I’ll be done by next weekend!
Anyway, I didn’t want to spend all weekend in front of my computer screen. Luckily, one of my wife’s teachers from med school was in town so we went out to meet up with him at Times Square. After chatting and walking around with him a bit, he left to meet up with other friends, so my wife and I did the tourist thing. I pulled out my camera and started taking photos. We did some shopping and window shopping and wound up eating out. It wasn’t a spectacular day but it was a great day and a good weekend outing.
Sunday, we hit the track and ordered pizza.
Now, the time for fun and games are over. I have to get ready for the first day of my first summer class: Islam in the West. It should be exciting!
