I swim at Beatty Park now.  It hasn’t changed much… I love the midcentury architecture.  




I wonder how many of us “first generation” tumblr users still have an active tumblelog?

March, 2007. By my back-of-the-envelope math, I’m averaging 4.5 posts a day.

Been at this since November 2008…..maybe that’s Gen 1.5? Anyway, been pretty consistent going on 6 years now, which is either impressive or sad, depending on your perspective.

I’ve been on Tumblr since June 2007, but I’ve changed accounts several times in the last 7 years. I was atherdiscretion, then butterflyeffects, lacontessa, mariposima and now……… Do I still count?
