The garlic festival was fun; about what I expected. I was a little confused by the appeal of the wine tasting tent -- I ducked in there briefly to sample the garlic wine -- but then again, I'm not a Californian. Garlic bread, garlic seafood and meat, garlic recipies (though cooking isn't much of a spectator sport, least as I can tell), garlic peanut butter chocolate cups, garlic ice cream... it was a trip.

The traffic wasn't as bad as it might've been, but then again we left the festival early, figuring that we'd already seen what we needed to see and didn't need to hang around for outbound traffic to pick up.

Other stuff -- I got some good Denemo hacking done this weekend, and good for-pay hacking done on Friday and this morning, for that matter. And I bought some furniture on Sunday afternoon; now all I need is a couch for the living room, something mesmerizing to put on the living room wall where the TV's supposed to go, and a roommate, and I'll have a pretty complete apartment.

Oh - and another library trip. The Sunnyvale library's got so much more selection than the ones back at home in Westchester -- it's really refreshing to go there. None of this "No Cryptonomicon available at any Westchester Library System member library" stuff that I got to deal with over spring break.
